Final table had 3 maniacs thought I would only cash for $30 but doubled up with 88 while I let them knock other people out. I will post some key hands of my suckouts later My second day as a Chromestar and I make the Chromestar freeroll FT

Personally, I wouldn't call this a bad beat unless you knew your opponent was a nit. Except for certain metagame situations many will make this play. If the player is maniacal your call is almost mandatory.

Giving bad beats (getting your money in way behind your opponent's range) is -EV.

Good decisions.

You played it perfectly. And you've had your share of bad beats, so they had to balance out eventually
