Why cap the turn with one pair? I'm with you on the flop, but on the turn you're just spewing chips. You represented top pair on the flop, your job there is done. He's telling you that he has that beat - and you have no reason not to believe him.

Flop is good, call turn when he leads, call river.

Well, I still need to pratice more with limit hold em since I don't play that often. I was trying to play aggressive and drive the players out of the pot which is hard to do in limit. Dingodaddy also has a point. It WAS a freeroll.

On a sidenote, I managed to build my chipstack from a measly 240 (which was left after that hand) to 11,300! Then, a suffered another bad beat (see bad beat thread) that got me out of the tournament.
