      I think the MP3 is simply lucky...there was no logic he was obviously just relying on luck to get the straight...IMO, the 3rd diamond was already bad news...I would immediately think you had a draw or an overpair that's why you bet on the flop...I didn't get why he called on the turn...the river bet was obviously some sort of victory cry when he finally hit a straight, ignoring the possible flush...

      you played it right IMO

      consider yourself lucky, 5/6 times you'll win that hand if the other player plays that way. Just unfortunate you lost that one.

      Pot the flop, jam the turn, move on :) Villain's logic is 'i've been playing for a while and i'm a bit tired, plus i have cards that look like they are in the middle of those on the board, it's probably good enough to end my session and go out to drink'. Or something like that.

      Hope it helps.
