It's scary that over 5000 people can get knocked out of a limit game in under two hours...

And sadly, even after two hours theres apparently still people who will chase a nine high flush to the river...

Thats a crappy way to go, and you didn't do anything wrong. I guess all you can do is try again next time.

Yeah, you gotta love those donks...chasing and catching is they do...

Isn't that in a donks vocabulary? Chase and Catch!

Yeah, nothing you could really do did what you can but that's how it they always say...there is always next time and next time you can cut off their legs if they chase and catch! :) :)

I am amazed as how they think ANY 2 suited cards are playable. I play mostly $2 SnGs , and very often i see donks callng raises with ANY 2 suited cards, im talking about J6 or 95 for example. And if the flop brings 2 extra cards to their flush draw, they'll chase it to the end.
