I didn’t type TQB in the chat box, I was afraid he might find a way to kill me.

I always hear that if you get stacked by set over set you played the hand correctly.. so do not worry about that. You also had the best hand going into the first pot. So many outs so little time.. I like your play on both hands, except I like getting the money in earlier..

Nothing wrong with betting on a straight-flush draw.

The set over set, just call it a "good beat".

Nasty. Me likey. I hit a straight flush once, on the flop even, but couldn't get any action. Nicely done. And probably a wise move, omitting the TQB line.
