No idea, but may I ask what YOU were thinking calling a pre-flop raise, betting the flop, and calling the flop raise with that hand? You'll lose a lot of money playing hands like this.

I called the pre-flop raise because I was getting 5-1 for my money. Which is pretty good odds for suited cards. The Randomness factor is extremely high pre-flop so when I get good odds I take them.

I bet pre-flop because I wanted to represent the sevens pure and simple,

I called the raise because the guy who raised had been full of crap the entire game. I mean he has been betting with nothing the entire game. I think he was on tilt.

I called at the turn for the same reasons.

You don't think the play was sound?

Looked like you were representing a queen not the 7's. If you are gonna pretend to have a great hand, you gotta throw a reraise in there.

You got lucky in the you were trying to fancy play an idiot, and that only gets you in trouble.

Problem with calling down bluffs with 86, is that you still don't win usually.

I'm no expert, but it's definitely not a play I would make. A hand like 86s wants a lot of people in the flop, and wants to see the flop as cheaply as possible. Calling a raise with only three people in the hand seems like a huge mistake to me. You had a read on the guy that said he probably didn't have a hand, but you really didn't have one either.

Now that's the kind of player I like to go against...and he had the largest amount of money! How did that happen...

Just my opinion but I would have called the preflop raise hoping for a very good flop but more so to show that I would defend my blinds to this guy. The flop that came out though was horrible. I would have folded at that point. For the most part 86s is a hand that I would fold without hesitation...depending on the specific situation and my position though.
You only live once...So enjoy it while you can!

Very optimistic view you had of that hand following the flop. I definitely would have called that glass half empty and mucked that hand after looking at the flop. Good for you that you didn't. Great hand!
