Hand Summary:
Villain wins $1720.26 with straight flush, eight high.

For those of you who are wondering, I was a 58% favourite on the flop. That said, were the situation reversed, I would have played it the exact same way. We both took the optimal line in this hand, and in the end it was all down to luck.... or lack of it, in my case.

I stacked off with 66 last night on an AA6 flop from the BB vs only the SB. He had A6s. Pretty sick.
