Agreed.

It was a gamble on both of y'alls parts. It's not a horrible beat, but the odds were with you when you called...and certainly with you had it been a preflop all-in.
You played solid poker, though. On his part, you just CANNOT risk all of your chips with a flush draw...even the nut flush draw.

Since it's poker, this kind of stuff happens, though...

After it's three way in a tournament and you have most of your chips in the pot preflop I think you can.

It wasn't most, it was half his stack, but that's a pretty minor difference. What matters is how much did he have left before calling the all in, and what were the blinds/antes? If he'd have been crippled by folding, then he had to chase it. If his stack is still healthy, then there was no reason to chase it other than the pot odds (a little better than 3-1 on his money on about a 43% draw), but that's still a risky play that late in a tournament.

i think a little of both, getting beat on the river like that is always a bad beat, but with pocket K's i would have been all-in pre flop, especially if 1st to act was already in. i'd rather him fold and win a small pot than let him limp in with A-10 suited and hit the flush or an Ace on the flop

as some said though, with only 3 left there's a good chance he'd call anyway with A-10 suited, i probably would have
