      Is this call as horrible as I think it is?

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three of a kind, aces (9d Ah)
      UTG2 shows a full-house, sevens full of aces (7s 7c)

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, sevens full of aces (7s 7c)


      Looking back and analyzing the situation logically, it seems like a retarded call. At the time I thought it was a busted flush draw. Betting pot into a 3way flop shows a lot of strength and I guess I should have folded the flop to a re-raise because he's only doing that with 2pair / set / ace with a higher kicker.

      Was this call justified in any way or am I just a total donk?
