      Yes, people like to call pre-flop with suited hands. And sometimes they hit a nice flop or a turn or a river. And be glad they do else your EV would drop down a lot.

      And like yesterday I go all in with AKs preflop and someone called. He revealed 8d6c and made trips on the flop of 8h8c5c and the turn was 4c and the river was 7c. So he made a straight flush when calling for 18 bb pre-flop with 86o vs a hand that dominates him hard. I just said: Meh, shit happens, let it go and keep playing.

      10 BI lost sux but it's not un-recoverable. Just stick to the charts and strategy and it'll pass.
