Default A straight on the flop - I folded it. ($5)

And I don't even think villain flopped a flush, I think it was a draw. I was just feeling really unlucky - lots of bad beats lately.

A few hands later the second hand happened - same villain. Then similar hands later. Then the tilt set in. I felt so beat down. I don't think I made any bad decisions because of it though. I just steamed.

How bad is this? (This is the bubble)

First hand is pretty terrible, there is no reason to ever fold this.

Second hand is dependent on reads. I probably fold vs. an unknown since your stack is still in decent shape, but it's a tough call.

1 is a fist pump snap call.

2 is closer, but if he has minthreebet pre earlier I would snap call.

1&gt;&gt; There is no way a made flush pushes on that board. And you beat pretty much everything else. And if he has KQ, GLNHWP, start a new. I think the most likely holding is two pair or a pair with a flushdraw.

2&gt;&gt; VERY read-dependent. I agree with pudge - if he has min-raised preflop with anything else than QQ+ earlier (or often enough to make it likely he is re-raising wider) , I'm not laying this down.
