    .................................................. .......................................... trust me this isn't the 1st time this has happened, it's been the last 2 months, i just didn't feel like posting them all, Figured i'd try n fix what i thought was wrong, my 86th place finish in Dec. was obviously a fluke according to the last 2 months.

    i know you're short staked but to go all in with middle pair and a straight draw after a check is a little too aggressive in my opinion. you had position and since it's such a draw-heavy board i would have checked and seen if i liked the turn - made you the straight so at that point it'd just have been a cooler and nothing you can really do there. tough spot there; no shame in not getting away from it on the turn but to shove on the flop, just seems wrong to me. unlucky mate.
