      You did nothing wrong. The call on the flop may be questionable since we really want to get it in with as few board cards as possible but you played it great considering his cards. You got skrewed, carry on. nice hand

      Hi, antstruk!

      Nice hand! You played well, he played awfully and put his money in always way behind. In the long run you'll win a lot in these situations and they will lose.

      Against this type of player you can also consider raising flop straight away. But since he probably don't have that many strong draws anyway, calling flop and raising turn is fine as well.

      Keep it up! Poker is like that, we can't win them all, what is important is that we win a bit more often than they do ;)
