The guy bitched me out for callin..
i still dont see a valid arguement from his side... other than my preflop call... calling 2100 more from the BB with 6 9 suited
but it was getting close to bubble time, and a couple of us (including him) had started to get a tad more aggressive.
whats everyones input?

You just got extremly lucky, you just happened to catch a piece of the action on the flop, and i'd say you were still way behind at this stage. How did you finish in the end, id say the table was watching you after that play.
Having said that, his play was a bit suspect as well, small bet on the flop screamed weakness, he probably should have pushed there and then.

Well there you go then - 8 outs out of 46 remaining cards is a little short of 6/1 odds. You were getting roughly 2/1 odds (had to put $11,300 into $23,500), so you should have folded (though as the others said, you shouldn't have been in hand in first place).

You caught one - this is one of the "good beats" that players tend to forget about when bemoaning their bad beats!

Did you win in the end?

LOL. Would not have liked to be the other guy. Do that in the long term, and you will be the loser.
But fair play you won, with Mr.lucky.....

Can't really figure why you would have been in pre-flop with that many players at the table. the_wo0t should have definitely pushed more in after catching the Aces, maybe he was laying a trap that ended up ensnaring himself. In either case you couldn't have thought you were in strong enough position with low pair. So, I agree, it was a good-beat for you and one you won't win too often.
