      Hi guys, I wanted to see if this was a donkey move or a good move?

      I know I had great outs with the straight, flush and straight flush draw...

      Nice river, but I wouldn't get in the habit of making that move often.

      Someone else would know the numbers better, but you're something like 4% to win when you called all-in. I'd be folding like a lawn-chair when he bets the flop. There's really nothing there for you.

      NH though. ;)


      Correction: I checked the numbers and you're 15% on the turn.

      yeah I seriously agree I shouldn't get in the habit of that. But I just took in consideration that I just had 13 BBs left. but those draws just had me blinded. But I agree

      I wouldn't get to worried @ 13BB. I play a lot of SnG's and I normally play push/fold around 9-10BBs.

      Even then try to pick a spot like a pair with a flush draw or OESD to maximize your outs. I've come back from 30 chips to win before, so don't bail out to early!

      Good luck at the tables!

      obvious fold flop, villain's betting into a 4-way pot he almost always has something.

      check/raise all-in on the turn
