You figured right, and I think you made the correct play. This is one of those hands that a less skilled player would have called, then sucked out. You missed your chance to be a donk LOL.

On a serious note, I've been reading a lot of your posts lately. I went through a similiar slump recently. I started looking through my hand histories to find some of the horrendous bad beats I had been suffering. While I was doing this, I realized that every time I had been knocked out it had been a bad beat.

I started thinking about this, and realized that if I was getting my money in with the best hand every time, there wasn't anything else I could do. Sooner or later, the variance would shift and my hands would start holding up.

I know it's hard, but try to keep your head on straight. As long as you make the right decisions, the poker gods will eventually smile on you.

Good luck!!
