prolly the toughest hand i've played in recent memory.
ever have one of those days? you know the kind where ALL your semi-bluffs get picked off? where all your sets get sucked out on? when you try to drive a villain out of the pot, and they seem to be "floating" on you? you know, the kind of day where everything that can go wrong...does?
well, this was one of those. VILLAIN WAS VERY PASSIVE POST FLOP, from what i had seen. a lot of calling, no raising. so, that just added to the "degree of difficulty" in pushing here, as i cannot call his raise here, it is push over the top or fold due to the stack sizes. when called, i figured to be behind, but i pushed in the first place figuring i was ahead.
