Phil gordon I think said, "all you can do is get your money in the middle with the best hand"

About going all in, the pot was about 1k, and you only had a little more than that left, so it was the right move.

Phil Hellmuth would say "F**k you!" '
Well let's say that there was nothing for you to do. The money was in and well sometimes river drowns you can't do anything about it.

Take care, S

Nothing wrong there, just take your medicine and move on. Play it like that and you'll come out ahead in the long run.

I agree, you did it right, but forgot to make reservations with the Poker Gods.

Not sure I probably fold, one even though I might think he has trips he could have a higher flush. You still have 1100 in chips plenty for another hand later. Was it a multi table trny? If so Iam sure I would have gotten out. Online play is a little tricky with the software out there to predict RNG hands plus the fact that 90% of the time first one all in wins regardless of the cards tough call. Live play would have probably had to consider the call a little more though. Just remember what Ferguson says there is always another hand.
