Me: KK Opponent: Q-6 Flop: Q-7-5 Turn: 8 River: Q I'm not knocked out, but the opponent wasn't that low in chips. As always, good poker is punished ;-) This occurred on pokerstars (shocking!) Thoughts?

Thoughts? Just a question, how did u play ur hand - aggressive (pushing after the flop) or conservative (low bets to get sum1 in the pot)? If u played it aggressively and the opponent called on his top pair u made nothin wrong, otherwise u cud have bet him out.

Assuming you raised PF, he shouldn't have been in the hand, but he was, so let's look at it from his perspective. Raised PF.............. sure I'll play a Q6, why not. Flop comes Q75.......... sweet, I hit top pair of course I'm going to call any raise including an all in Turn 8 ..............wow, I have top pair, plus an open ended straight draw, I will call my entire stack to see the river RIver Q............. trips, no way I can be losing with my kicker not evening qualifying, I'm risking it all There you have it, my interpretation of how the hand went down. No way you could have got him off it, short of all in PF
It's easier to fish if you're the one casting the reel.

Little unlucky simply becuase very few players can lay down top pair even with crappy kicker. Most players are willing to lose it all with it, even if think they are dominated. Just to dumb to fold. By the turn you had no chance to get rid of him and the bad beat was inevitable. Would be interesting to see what the betting process was to getter a better indication of how the hand went down. How much it cost him to chase and see the river card.

that is definetly a tough beat but like someone earlier mentioned if u didnt play it aggresively enough then u gave them the chance to catch a lucky card. that stuff happens to me all the time. and then the funny thing is u bet those hands like the KK and then everyone folds and you make nothing or u dont bet high enough and someone with complete crap calls u and catches. Good Luck...
ALL IN! Take Er EZ!, If she's EZ take er Twice..
