    You figured right, and I think you made the correct play. This is one of those hands that a less skilled player would have called, then sucked out. You missed your chance to be a donk LOL.

    On a serious note, I've been reading a lot of your posts lately. I went through a similiar slump recently. I started looking through my hand histories to find some of the horrendous bad beats I had been suffering. While I was doing this, I realized that every time I had been knocked out it had been a bad beat.

    I started thinking about this, and realized that if I was getting my money in with the best hand every time, there wasn't anything else I could do. Sooner or later, the variance would shift and my hands would start holding up.

    I know it's hard, but try to keep your head on straight. As long as you make the right decisions, the poker gods will eventually smile on you.

    Good luck!!
    Bracelet Winner
