I could've checked the river and called (hardly imagine that)
I could've bet, he would've raise we end up all in anyways.
Not to whine again here on forums, but everytime running into quads,straight flushes, higher fullhouses/straights/flushes/sets is just ****ing hard to deal with. And I like the game itself, but I think I qualify for guiness world record of bad luck. And I would lose even that, because I have really bad luck.

Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm not trying to beat up on you and I'll accept that you were a bit unlucky.

However in poker, luck evens itself out and you should try to improve what you can control - i.e. how you played your hand.

If you choose to slowplay like you did, you have to accept that sometimes it's going to backfire and your opponent will overtake you. When your opponent is raising you at every opportunity, there's no need to slowplay, just keep raising and try get it in on the flop! If he's got KThh or T8hh, then you just have to congratulate him.

you went in with a weak ace, he had 7 outs after the flop and 10 after the turn, he is not going anywhere.

I know exactly how you feel.

I have times when I get a massive sinking feeling to see I am well ahead on the flop but I just know what the turn and river card will be.

I can get it in with top 2 and just know that he is going to get runner runner for a straight or a flush or I will call his shove with my AA well ahead of his middle pocket pair only for the river to give him his set.
When I am short stacked in a tourney and get it all in with my AK for him to flip over KJ only to hit a Jack on the flop.I lose so many more hands than I win when I have a dominating hand its unreal.

It happens far far to often especially the last one. Just makes me sick.

Don't slow play, just don't do it, its pointless at the micros.

You kept the pot small when you knew you were ahead there, then overbet when the board paired, meaning you could be behind. If you are 'running bad' then its probably lines like this that are doing it.

When you have the nuts, just bet/bet/bet/bet/bet and bet again. You don't need to balance ranges, merge them or do anything complicated at the micros. People fold too much and they call too much at the micros. If they have nothing, you are winning a small pot, take it. If they have hit top pair on a monotone flop, they will call you, just bet and bet a decent size.

What I was thinking at that time to get that 4th heart on the table, because person who I played against kept overplaying cards like QK KJ etc. So I thought if he hits king high flush he would be trapped on the turn. On the river I knew full house is possible, but I guess that was snap shove -,- Also his small bets/re-raises put me off big time as well as he woke up with QQ in his hand. Actually now that I'm not steaming I see a lot of things I could've did differently there.
This was kinda fail slowplay, but still it's frustrating not to mention I usually get my money in as a favorite and I get stomped T_T

So don't deposit, build a BR from free rolls. It's been done before, and you appreciate the money so much more when you had to work hard to get it. Bad beats happen, if you can't handle them you might as well give up now.

In this spot you should definitely bet the flop and turn large after putting him on the range of a big pocket pair pre flop from the 4 bet, this way if he is a poor player is is likely to get allot of money in bad with a set on a 4 card flush out there. However when the river pairs the board given his range i think a check call is the best way to minimize your losses instead of shipping it for value as even if he has a msall flush he is unlikely to call such a big river bet and your only ever going to get called by a full house.

A-3 IS A-3.....If you hit your Ace on the flop you have a 3 for a kicker, If you hit the 3 pretty much every card is going to be an over card. A fold pre flop is what should have happened.
