I played it perfectly and he got there.

Hey Forrest!

I don't know about playing it perfectly, but it's DEFINITELY a bad beat. Instead of turning it inot a limit game on the flop, I'd have bet 3X his previous bets until I had a reasonable shove.

Hi John,

Yes I was slowly slowly catchy monkey. Didn't know he had top 2 and doubt he would release that holding with a bigger re-raise to set up a shove.

I was resigned to seeing an over set when all the money was in on the flop then a smiley face turns
