I couldn't remember the EXACT betting structures and everything, because i didnt post the instant hand history straight away and thus lost it. So i've made it as near as possible.

What could i have done better here? (Except fold of course...)

I just keep running into monsters.

There was NO raise pre-flop, i'd put the first person on a ten, maybe a small pair or even another nine. Didnt have a read on the other guy...

That's tough. You obviously can put one on a flush draw. I would most likely put the other on a 10. Often in the blinds I check monsters too and hope to flop, it's a good way to catch people (as you got caught). But, it matters what kind of player you are... two people basically all-in before you I might have to let it go.

I'd already put half my stack in. I wasn't about to lay it down.

I should have folded pre-flop.

Live and learn

No, don't fold preflop. You're getting massive implied odds - if they both showed, say, slowplayed overpairs here and you had won the pot, would you still be saying "I should have folded preflop"?

Don't be results-oriented. You played it fine.

Like Chuck says you did the right thing. This is just one those freak hands that came around. I had one the other day where I was on the winning end. I limped in with A8, flop was A, 8, 8. High betting by 2 others. Turn was an 8. All went in. Needless to say the other 2 had As under. Sweet pot there. Next time it will happen for you.

I disagree. I think with the raise of your bet and the re-raise over the top of that, you must have serious concerns about being dominated on that flop. Even a hand like JhQh is about even money with you there. And someone could easily limp with 910 or A9 or K9. With the given action, I think you can pretty easily fold that flop.
