      Nice, uh? :s_biggrin:

      I had a bad day, I was down 2BI mostly from bad beats (AA cracked by T6s with AI PF style) and bad set-ups, nothing really bothering until this hand. I am happy it occurred at the end of my session cause it stunted me. I am not angry at all but it left me with that "WTF???!!!...LOL!!!" feeling that put me out of focus and since I play 24 tables I cannot afford to lose focus a bit. I am almost happy I've seen it but I would have preferred to see it on TV in a big event than at my table costing me a BI. :tongue:

      Wow... it's not nice to sit on your end of that hand. But it happens. At least you decided to quit after that. A lot of players get hit with a hand like that and then keep getting hammered by "bad beats" which they caused themselves. :)

      If I got such reaction on the flop I would worry about one of them having 78s and flopping a straight. But honestly, I have no idea what I would do. Probably the same you did. I wish you could post the hand for someone to evaluate it. It's from hands like this that I learned the most. You made me think here... :)

      Should you really fold top set here?

      If you ask me, I would never fold top set in this kind of situation, unless I know that I have a huge rock in front of me that only raises the nuts. It is nl5, at pokerstars, most of the time I will see TPTK, overpair or flush draw in spots like these. Flopped straight is a possibility, but due to the overall kamikaze style at this level, the 250+bb in the pot and the fact that I still have outs to make the absolute nuts, I think I have to call. I may have played it differently at a higher level, but at nl5 this is a no brainer for me.
