    Question Bad beat or bad read?

    Hi. I'm pretty new to poker so I'm still not sure if I'm experiencing bad beats or I read the situation wrong. Hopefully someone can shed some light. Here is how it went down...

    • I'm in BB, dealt pocket T's.
    • CO bets 3 BB's.
    • BTN calls
    • I call
    • FLOP T(h), 9(s), A(h)
    • I bet 2/3 pot
    • CO calls, BTN folds
    • TURN 6(d)
    • I bet 2/3 pot
    • CO calls
    • RIVER 8(s)
    • I bet 2/3 pot
    • They raise 2/3 pot, I call, they have the straight 8 to Q...


    Frigging call...

    Tournament or cash? Stakes? Played with villain before? I likely check call river since it did complete a double gutter str8 draw. Also would have given op a chance to bluff with a missed flush draw. If he had missed a flush draw he would likely have folded to your river bet.. Very read dependent.
    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    3 bet pre, you can see co range is wide, q8, so 3 bet more. As played don't donk this board almost ever and check raise.
    In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.

    Villain had QJ I believe, since 8 was river card. Bad read...:D

    Still like your line better though...

    Helpful to know stack sizes and whether this is a cash game or a tournament. (Assuming cash) If cash, what is the buy-in and what are the blinds?
