i would have done the same. you had a straight on flop. what else should you´ve done...fold ? the only scary thing is J Qd 9 ...thats my personal nightmare. im afraid of flushes, specialy when playin on low limits. but you did it well by $0,33 pot raise so either he takes the risk and calls or he fold. just a bad beat. more luck next time
well with the flush draw I wouldn't have gone all in, but I wouldn't expect facing a full house. I think you did well playing your straight aggressevly but yeah bad beats do occur and I think this is one of them .
Yeah, not a whole lot you could do about that one - you got him to put all his money in when you had the best hand - he just got lucky - just remember that in the long run those types of plays will pay off for you not them.

he is not folding with top two pair and you are not with a straght, if you move your chips before all the cards are out that is the risk you take, i agree you played it fine, apart from maybe the fact of playing K10 pre flop that was the wrong thing to do, and arguably why you lost your money.

its just one of those hands neither player could let go (at that limit anyway) the fact is you made your hand, so you were favored to win, you just got ass raped on the river, i dont think he would have folded no matter what the raise was after the flop, and a raise pre flop, your cards wernt great, so yeah just a bad beat dude.

thats really a bad beat if the most money went in u had the straight and he had just 2 pair so that he sucked u out with the j ( full house) was just very lucky for him no mistake from u maybe next time bet the flop higher

When you get your chips in ahead you can only hope you don't take it in the behind.
king ten middle position is not the greatest. (should have raised or folded preflop) you called and suprize- flopped the nut s8 nice.
you want to get paid off but there is a flush draw possible - make them pay to draw out on you!
you should have bet more after the flop to define your hand (at this limit you'll get called no matter what but it is a good habit to get into) and to make anyone drawing pay to catch up. pot- 2X the pot betsize imo
in this case acid orange raises min .04 you reraise .08 (here reraising the min is wrong imo maybe reraise to .15-.20)
you both think you have the best hand right now, it might have been possible with a larger reraise to get acid to rethink where he is in the hand
maybe acid just calls.
turn is a heart you bet
acid has to decide if his two pair is going to beat a s8 and/or a flush
after all that is said.
you had the best hand and got acid to put his money in the middle way behind. then you lost to a fourouter bummer dude

I don´t understand anything about that bad beat jackpot so could somebody tell me sosme facts... everything I know about that is that two players got to have both perfect hands and another lose and everybody on that table gets that bad beat?!?
Not all poker games offer bad beat jackpots, and those that do have specific requirements for how strong a losing hand must be to qualify for the jackpot. For example, the losing hand may be required to be four-of-a-kind or better. There may be additional requirements as well. For example, in Texas hold 'em there is usually a requirement that both hole cards play in both the losing and winning hands
so lets say you hold As Ad flop comes Ah Ac Kc turn 6h river 10c
if the other guy has Qc Jc you have qualified for the bad beat jackpot You get 50% the winner of the hand gets 25% 25% split up to the players at the table

Jep you played that hand correctly , when you flop nut staight in rainbow flop you just wanna get your chips in the middle, It is really bad beat because guy had two pair ad made full house on river , you played hand absolutely correctly but other guy played little bit loose because if I would have had two pairs on flop , i would have not gone all in.
