      After his shove on the flop I really didn't know what to do...First I thought he has JJ and that I am beaten...but I saw him few hands before going all-in on the flop whit just flush or straight I called....was this a bad call??

      The fact is you got it in way ahead on the flop and somehow he managed to suck out, that's poker. You played it very well, he played it horribly, and yet he won. It'll happen over and over again, you need to get used to it.

      Don't start doubting your play just because it shows in your HUD as a "big loss". You had an overpair in a 3bet pot against a guy you've already seen shoving pretty light before, it's a super-snap-call-high-five-your-monitor moment. Focus on hands when you got it in really bad instead, suckouts are out of your control.

      Hope it helps.
