      Horrible loss here. :f_cry:

      I feel like the continued aggression was the right thing to do with the continual checks. Did I do anything wrong? Should I have backed down after the flop?

      Hello holnrew,

      Why do you try to bluff vs a station? Most likely I would already Check it behind right on the flop since I can't see many worse hands betting the turn anyways while the guy is passive. And even if you Bet then it's 1 street bet only.

      Best Regards.

      Why? By posting you at least learn and next time you will remember getting such a feedback. ;) You should be rather embarrassed when you not posting any hands and not trying to become better.
