      Agreed -- Terrible call by QJo.

      I think you played the hand perfectly and simply just got unlucky. You were in good position with a top pair, top kicker, with a nut flush draw.

      The ONLY concern is that the guy donk bets into two opponents which, depending on the opponent of course, could tell me he made his strong hand (2 pair, or set) and wants to protect from the flush draw. With that being said, and the stack sizes being the way they are, I like the move.

      Hey

      Why don't you have 100bb in your stack? We should always play with that maximum buy-in, as that way we make more monies :D

      I like shoving flop. You have a monster hand and it's a 3bet pot. Our equity is just gonna be awesome against any hand! Even against a set, we have 31% equity ;-)

      Besides, he's gonna pay us with worse draws, worse top pairs and a bunch of other rubbish.

      Nice hand!
