    Getting it in good, then get drawn out on...twice

    Carbon 3.30 Turbo. I'm UTG with about 40 BBs. I have the everybody at the table covered except UTG+2 who has 45 BBs. I get 2 black 5s. Min raise hoping to flop a set or get through to the blinds. UTG+2 calls, folds around to the button who has about 7 BBs. Button calls leaving him with about 5 BBs left. Blinds fold. Flop comes 3 5 A, two hearts. I'm 100% good in this spot. Aces will re-raise, and 24 is never calling. I do a C-bet of 2.5 BBs. UTG+2 calls, so I put him on a weak A, 2-pair or flush draw. Button then ships. He has to ship at this point I re-raise all in hoping to isolate and price out a flush draw but to my shock UTG+2 calls. Turns out my read was right, UTG+2 has A9 1 heart, and and button has 46 no hearts. Turn is 7h. River is the 10h. Put it in good, get busted by the hand that had no business calling...sad face.

    I know, still is no fun when it happens. I win that hand I'm chip leader. Even if the button hits his straight, if a heart doesn't peal off on the river I'm basically guaranteed to finish ITM.

    I'm constantlyu trying to figure out what it takes to get limpers/donks to fold their rags as I go through the tourney. No getting away from your hand there. bad beat. But you could raise more pre flop - show KK instead of 55 - which may be what he put you on. board pairs up you lose.
