Flop comes 8c-7s-5c. SB bets out 225 into the pot of 350. Raiser comes over the top all-in. SB counts chips, has roughly 150 or so behind if he calls and loses, which he does in fact call with little thought.

SB turns over JJ. Initial Raiser turns over the two seven not suited... Turn comes a 2 of spades, which was one of 6 cards that could have helped your's truly. The river delivers a jack (one of 8 cards that could have hurt your's truly), which effectively sucks out on the hammer, sending your hero to the rail. Sick I tell you, just plain sick!
