      I can't deal with these idiots anymore. This is brain-damaging. I've seen this situation 5 times and every time they completed the gutshot. I can't deal with this anymore. I lost 1/6 of my bankroll today by losing such small retarded pots.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $10.48
      SB:
      $6.34
      BB (Hero):
      $4.00
      CO:
      $2.74


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4, Q.
      CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.25) A, 2, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.25) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BU calls $0.12.

      River: ($0.49) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.47, Hero calls $0.47.

      Final Pot: $1.43.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, five high(4 Q).
      BU shows a straight, six high(6 K).

      BU wins with a straight, six high(6 K).

      Don't mean to be a dick, but you can't rage too much at that :\

      Your gutshot got completed on the river just the same as his, he was just lucky to have a higher card than you for a 6 high straight.

      Yesterday I flopped a straight, got raised, went all in and got called by a 2 pair, and he hit a 2 outer on the river to make a full house.

      Happens dude, one of those things. I maybe advise you to look at some poker psychology, it could help you

      My advice is not to call a pot size bet when you play the board.

      Actually I had a pair + a gutshot. I bet on purpose to discourage him from drawing for free. And on river should I fold because maybe he called with a gutshot and hit?

      How is a two pair to full house a 2 outer? There are 2 outs for each pair, so it is a 4 outer actually. ;)

      Well, would he bet pot size if he didn't hit? Probably no, so it is quite an easy fold...

      K, thanks everyone for the feedback. I'll be more cautious in the future :P

      You did not have a gutshot. You should have bet the flop. I already answered your question, just dont call a pot size bet when you play the board and the board can be beaten. (so calling a pot size bet on AKQJT board with no flush possible is ok, but it is not on A2345 board)

      Oh yeah, was only thinking of the one card. But still, so low ;<
