      I was told i was an idiot for calling here. possible straight draw and possible flushdraw, but does that mean i shouldn't have called with an overpair?

      You can just go broke with an overpair here, so nh.

      Also, please leave away the results, they're not relevant. But because of the results, I can say that you should really make a note of Villains play here. Might save you some money later on.

      Well, his line is simply a bit odd, but I don't think you're response was wrong. You only needed less than 30% equity for that call, so with an overpair it's a must.

      But! With two limpers and slightly lowered stack and a hand that rarely improves but often enough get beaten by overcards you should've pushed it directly, I think.
