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.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
