      You dont get away from it.

      In fact as a winning player it will happen to you more often than it happens for you. Why?

      Because winning players are in front when the money goes in more often.

      Its just random luck. Just like when you get all in with aces vs aces and lose to a 4 board flush, you didnt do anything wrong. In fact you did everything right - you played a speculative hand preflop (well, whether or not that was right is questionable, overlimping T8s in MP1 is pretty loose) then played bet-raise-shove/call on flopping the nuts.

      Sometimes the flop nuts just isnt good enough and even a 0.01% chance has to happen sometimes.
