I was playing Full Tilt with some tourney winnings at a .05/.10 table. Being up to $12.50 I caught some bad cards and then found KK off button. The first player to act raised to $0.50, I raised to $1.00 leaving the big blind to call and the first man to reraise $2.00. I stayed in and so did the blind. The flop came J 8 6 rainbow and blindman checked, second man bet $1.00 (I figured to buy pot) then I went allin which prompted both the blind and first man to call quickly.

We showed, my KK, the first man had KK, and the blind showed the J8. After weighing the situation, the turn showed another J giving it to the blind.

I wasnt so much stunned as angry at the blind seeing the flop after calling us J8 offsuit. -- Would the best play had been to go allin preflop to chase away the blind and leaving headsup to split the pot? I'm still thinking about it figuring its just FullTilt but to call us $2.00 preflop with those cards seems outrageous.

Always say a bad beat is fine when its me winning but MAN, KK gets you in more trouble than its worth.

In low limits with that much action already in the pot, yes an all in would be appropriate in this situation.

You might have been able to push the BB out with a bigger re-raise preflop. That's the only thing I can think of that will save you the lose here. I'd bet the pot so it would be about 1.75 to go preflop. If the BB calls that then you're just a victim to a suck out.

bb had no business being in the pot. Notwithstanding a SIGNIFICANT read, a 5x raise that was doubled shoud always be enough to chase J 8 away.

Make a note on the donk and hope you catch him making the same against again.
