      Raise pre to 15.000$,min-raise flop and if he shoves fold,it's clear he has some sort of full house,obvious imo.

      15k is too little, just make it 90k and slowroll him for his last 1,3k is he shoves which he will do everytime.

      Stop hitting on big stacks. They can lose some flips or small underdog cases and still be in the game. You can't vs them. Wait for better spots.

      Hey Belayd,

      Sucks to lose :( I would probably fold pre flop, I know we have position but our hand is often dominated by better hands and he is first to act on the flop and we are going to lose alot of the time, also if either of the blinds is agrresive we can easily be squeezed.

      OFC the flop plays himself and you were actually unlucky that he had such good equity (33%) when usually you can have him dominated and drawing dead.

      Unlucky, keep going and YOU WILL CRUSH!

      every once in a while you get bad beat in the late phase of a tourney.
      I remember the sickest one I experienced:

      3 dollar buy in 6-max on Stars (3000people)

      less than 100 remaining (I had slightly above average stack), I pick up KJ, raise 2,2xBB as usual when Blinds are big. BB min re-raises so I call. Flop comes 9TQ rainbow, he moves instantly all in for about 3x the pot, I call with the nuts. He shows JJ. Turn comes 9, river 9.
      I felt like throwing my laptop out of my window since it cost me over 2/3 of my stack and he had less than 2% chance to make the full house...

      Someone should maybe make a thread with the hands that hurt the most... doesnt have to be bad beat, can be cold deck, whatever
