Suited connectors in action

Perfectly played suited connectors; the only thing I can see that might be wrong is his call PF - I had been playing super tight, and maybe that's why he called (big pairs give implied odds, right). He probably knew I had a top 10 hand, and wanted to catch a nice flop, which he did. It's just too bad for me that I caught a nice one too :(

And yes, I'm a donkey - let me hear it :)

I put him on a flush draw after the flop, and was right; little did I know he also had a draw to the lower end of the straight, and caught the perfect card. I made a big bet to push him off, and my call was just an "I give up" call...I really should have folded, although I would have been crippled.

Chsing a straight is usually not a good idea, especially with riases after the flop and turn. TOugh Break. But to your opponent's credit, it was an open ended straight draw.

Did you miss that they also had the flush draw? At the flop, Chuck's opponent was favored to win, and as Chuck mentioned, there were definite implied odds in calling that raise. He didn't "chase" at all. Anyone would have called the raise on the flop with that hand.

Actually I would have most likely bet a wee bit more preflop and hit a lot harder at the flop. I think you went a little bit too easy on him in the begining.

yeah he was fav even if u had AA on the flop. i was in the guys position once with u&d sfd and called an all in and he went crazy at me but he didnt realise i was fav, even after i explained. im suprised u called the allin because at best u were splittin the pot.

The pre-flop raise was the normall 4X BB raise... how much further would chuck need to go.. 7-8-9-10X, all-in before the donk would have folded a marginal hand in the BB?(this reeks of the pot committed syndrome)...

I put money in the pot and I have suited cards that is connected.. why not cause You want 9-8 in a multiway pot.. not heads up cause you are commited to 30 in chips.. bad move on his part.

Chuck, the only thing that suprises me is your "I give up call". You sir, with 500 chips in front of you at that point in the game, are not crippled.

I know I know...this was definitely a result of my tilt as of the last few days.
I've been getting bad beat after bad beat after bad beat...I'm just going to take a break for a few days or maybe even a week (though my urges will definitely force me to play sooner) to get rid of the tilt.

Thanks for the input folks.
