Another disappointing time at the poker

I was dealt a pair of 8s and it cost me $1000 to see the flop with four other players, which was 653 rainbow.

The player in front of me posted a substantial (70% pot) raise. He was the big stack of the table and his history seemed to indicate to me that he generally only stays in when he has something worthwhile. If he's holding a pair, I reasoned, chances are high that it's either better than 8s or matches the flop. There's an outside chance that he has a 4 and thus an open-ended straight draw.

So I folded. The player after me had already sent in an advance command to jam the pot, so I was glad I was out of it.

One player called; the original raiser folded. As you might guess, the jammer had great cards that just didn't match the flop at all. The caller had a pair of 4s. If I had stayed in I would have tripled my stack. Boo!
