      hey guys, i just lost the most painful hand of my life last night and i am so frustrated, i just wanted to get some opinions , like it wasn't my fault it was just bad luck, just for my self-esteem :(
      so, i don't have the hand to show you because i was playing live, but i can describe it very easily...
      10 players,I was BB, blinds were 2.5 and 5 ,I didn't look at my hand until my turn. first man to act, UTG, raises to 50, he get's 6 calls and 2 folds and now it's my turn. pot was already more than 350 . i look at my hand, i had pocket deuces (2 :heart: 2 :spade:) . i was the last one to act. so i had to put 50 in a pot of over 350. i thought i was getting really good odds, cause all the callers must have had high cards.
      so i call !
      Flop comes:
      2 :diamond: 7 :club: 8 :club:
      SB check
      at this moment i shove all in for my remaining 450. i was thinking that i don't want a draw to call me, so a shove wouldn't give him good pot odds to draw, and that i would like to be called by an 8 or an over pair.
      so, i get 1 call , and all other fold.

      guy had pocket nines (9 9)

      Turn:
      8 :spade:
      River:
      8 :heart:
      ;(
      of course , devastated , cause i was playing for all my money for the holidays (and yeah, i know,maybe that's the biggest mistake of mine , cause u shouldn't play out of bankroll and you shouldn't play for money you can't afford to lose :rolleyes: )

      So, what do u guys think ? :( i'm having nightmares, biggest bad beat i got in while...

      You played it fine. Just play within your bankroll next time so the bad beats that are inevitable dont hurt too much ;)

      I think your biggest mistake is entering game where blinds are 2.5/5 with 500$/£/€ where loosing it would really hurt. About the hand you played it fine and I´d also shove flop after hitting my set. Just sometimes they would get their 10% or hit their flush and outdraw you.
