    It's a freeroll. What more is there to say?

        IMO you deserve it for going all in preflop. 4800 in the pot and you bet 15,000 with people still to act - while holding the 3rd or 4th best starting hand.

        Personally, you should have raised it 5K (if you want to try and take the pot right there, which looks like your intent, you don't necessarily have to throw all your chips in the middle). You give a reason for not very good players to take a chance when you throw all your chips in the middle. First, they are not knowledgeable enough to realize that you aren't bluffing. Second, they figure if they hit they can win a huge pot. You let them see all five cards for free this way, they don't have to worry about you betting them out of the pot.

        Of course, Noodles might say I'm wrong here (he usually does) - but that's my opinion, you overbet a pot and paid for it. I don't know how many times I've seen someone do that, and someone behind them wakes up with AA or KK. The only time I will make that move is with one of those two hands.

            Just because its in my nature to be defensive I figured out the odds for my stupid call, and confermed it was stupid. But Can you check my math?
            A courding to my matchup analizer:
            out of 1,000,000
            QdQc won 54.32% KsJh 15.54% Kd9d 13.45% 2s2h 16.68%

            so that put my hand (KsJh) at apx 1:7?
            and on the last bet befor my call there was 39,800 in the pot so I was beting 9,775 to win 39,800= .245 aprox 1:4

            so beting 1:4 on a 1:7 hand = bad.

            As always thanks for the help,

              Glad to see 57sauce's post on this hand. He is too good a player to make these plays. I was surprised to see him involved as an all in with a KJ.

              Spades, you want these people calling. It is where you make your money.

              Still, it is incredibly frustrating to take beats on some miracle draw hitting.

              Although with 3 callers, you gotta figure you are s*** out of luck.

                1st - as noodles says is a freeroll..what i should expect
