      Hero showed A K and lost (-$21.96 net)
      SB showed 4 4 and won $42.52 ($20.56 net)



      Is this just a cooler? Should I shove on the river? I just always seem to run into coolers when we're both >100BB deep and it's put me deeper into a downswing now :( so I'm wondering if I played it wrong, or if there was any way to get away?

      The guy was 62/11 over 50 hands which is what made me really sick, why do I pay off the fishes every time D:!

      flop and turn - played fine

      river - i dont mind the raise to get worse flush to call but when he re-raises its usually a strong flush or a full house so i wouldnt raise over, i would just call his raise.
