This was a bad beat.

Consider checking preflop if the villain is a calling station, since you're going to play out of position for the rest of the hand and he's not going to let you steal when you whiff. Also, bet bigger on the turn. Getting it in with your hand in this big of a pot is just fine.

I agree with Panicky. If the opp is a calling station, then I think it's better to check preflop.
If a calling station, I'd also bet more on the flop (pot sized bet at least, and if they are a calling station, I'd really consider even pushing the flop... but I'd only do that in a $$ mtt, not a PSO where you would get a big negative number if you lose the hand).

Bottom line though... it's a bad beat.

IMO bet folding the turn is fine.....

Your bet sizing probably needs to adjust and start making small bets post flop, betting big OOP leaves too much room for error and ultimately commiting urself by 4th street :/ such a common mistake in lots of peoples game imo

but yeh unlucky
