I am beginning to lose the will to live. I mean, wtf. Here I'm on the bubble with a guy sitting out.

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to FR Vessant [As Kh]
FR Vessant: raises 400 to 600
Grizzly68: calls 500
Wow, he must have a very decent hand, right? Because he only needs to sit out three orbits and he makes the money.
*** FLOP *** [6h Tc 7d]
FR Vessant: checks
I am not cbetting in this spot.
*** TURN *** [6h Tc 7d] [Kc]
There's my king.
Grizzly68: bets 200
FR Vessant: calls 200
Keep the pot small, just in case he has KT or a set.
*** RIVER *** [6h Tc 7d Kc] [5h]
Grizzly68: bets 600
FR Vessant: calls 600
Nothing to do but call that.
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Grizzly68: shows [Ks 7s] (two pair, Kings and Sevens)
WTF? How can you even consider calling pre with that? To be OOP with it for the whole hand? And of course he not only hits but so do I, so I can't even get away from it.
Here is a genuinely tough decision though, two hands later:

That's a very very strong hand. But I can just wait out the small stack. Believe me, this is the weakest hand I play here.
FR Vessant: raises 990 to 1190 and is all-in
nolimitaa: calls 990
Oh noes. He has Ah2h though. So I have him crushed, 70/30. Come on one time!
*** FLOP *** [Jh 4c 5c]
OMG. He picks up draw, so he now has 7 outs.
*** TURN *** [Jh 4c 5c] [8h]
My heart is in my shoes. Now he has the FD. I know a heart is coming.
*** RIVER *** [Jh 4c 5c 8h] [7h]
I FUCKING HATE POKER.
