I was playing the Party Poker blog freeroll. I was doing not to bad when i was in late position with H 10s i limp and with another player. The flop come K K 10 so i decided to slow play my hand no bet on the flop i check the turn and the other guy make a small bet that i called. the river come wit a Q again check the other one increase is bet i shove and he called showing K D and i lost this.
I read somewhere never slow play it is very dangerous however in this case even if i had bet he had trip K with a very good kicker i don't think he would have folded.

Dude I'm in the exacy smae position as you are currently. I been flopping nuts to get out drawn to absolute nuts all week long. I'm starting to realize to always bet or raise now. Yes if he trip Kings you're not getting rid of this player that's for sure. Just unlucky buddy and it will soon be your time when these hands actually hold up. Good luck out there pinotte and remember alot of it is just that, Luck lots of luck needed in these things.

U got over run on the river buddy, he was not folding his trips K`s even if u have shoved on the turn, Q was already coming on the river, u could not have done much either way, suckout, fak it, its painful and faks with your mind, even the best of players are not immune to tilting, so dont worry about it, mb the very next day it would be yourtime to suckout like this on other guys on the table Do the best u can to put this hand bhind u, and move on bro

Yap, I always ask to myself when I got similar case like you pinotte, What should I do ? what's skill I have to improve ? learn from who? I remember, no poker book discuss about that. Do you read it ? someone please let me know Like SBEP said, he wouldn't fold even you shove on turn ( or flop, I am sure )! that's the problem
