There isn't much of analysis needed here. I don't believe i could have gotten away from this hand. Maybe if i had pushed on the turn. I think smooth calling there was a mistake.

wow

I Would have lost all my money in that spot. Flopping the nut flush is impossible to get away from. Just recently same scenario happen to me live but the guy rivered quads instead of a full house

You should fold Ace 2 suited in early position. The only time you should play Ace rag suited is on the button or in the small blind (if it's folded to you). Early position you need AK AQ or AJ. Middle position you can throw in A10 A9 or A8. Late position you can raise with A7 maybe. On the button raise with any ace. And why not repop him on the turn? You've got the nuts and this guy has aggressively raised you twice no need to slowplay here just rereraise him.

Well i'm well aware of the hand selection in the various positions. The preflop limp-call was definitely an unprofitable move in the long run. I thought if i caught a break early, i would be able to really throw my weight around the scared-money, tight players.

The flop was what i hoped for when i made such a lousy preflop call. I should have shoved on the turn, you're right. However, at the moment, I was feeling way too comfortable to scare him away, even though he has shown to be holding a strong hand.

Shove the turn for sure. I don't mind you just calling on the flop, let him dig himself a hole but after he re-raises you on the turn you should've shoved.
I would have definitely lost all of my chips here but they would have been in on the turn and I'd be posting this in the bad beats section instead of the HA one. :p

This hand caused me more than $216 (buy-in). I went on tilt afterwards, and moved up my cash game to $5/$10 which caused me around $1800-$2000. Here's a lesson for everyone, move down in stakes when you're on tilt, rather than move up with hopes to win back your losses faster.

Well this was an expensive lesson.

Unsurprisingly I like the preflop limp. Play it right and you lose 20 chips 95%+ of the time and double up 1-5% of the time. Probably not +EV in chips, but for $EV you can't beat an early double up.

Blinds are bigger or stacks smaller then no.

Total cold deck for you however and sorry to hear about the tilt.

Suckouts are a big part of the game. Same thing happened to me in the Party 300k this evening (admittedly I didn't flop the nuts though :)).
Accept this and learn to love it, cause it's what makes poker poker.

I guess I never really thought of it like that. Thanks :)

Thats what happens when you slow play the nuts

Let's look on the bright side, you can use this hand in the scavenger hunt!

17) Flopping the nuts then losing the hand at showdown
