      That last 1 wasn't a suckout as much, it was just badly played! min raising with AA preflop?

      After I went downstairs, ate some crisps, drank some soda and watching soccer I reviewed my topic.

      Yes minraise was inadequate or simply bad played. This was the last hand I played (30 min. ago). But the odds of getting a straight on the board was simply flabbergasting me.
