Hi guys thanks for taking a look at this hand for me. My first high buy-in tournament and it was going really well until I butchered this hand.

I realise this is a very thin, high variance call down but in my mind a had a few reasons for it. It's the WCOOP sunday million so the structure is slow and I've been playing for a while with villain. He has flatted SB twice recently and donked big both times on low flops getting instant folds.

I felt like he was either on a busted flush draw or decided to play an 8 this way. I didn't figure he'd have many 8s so basically went with my read which turned out to be very wrong. I didn't think he would bet 3 streets into me when my range should be strong from UTG as I would likely play AA,KK,QQ the same way.

I was kicking myself after the hand but I enjoyed playing against people who don't shove KTo like it's the nuts.

Any thoughts welcome.
