I knew he was a bad player. I was afraid his flop bet was a set or 2 pair, so I just called down like a donkey myself. Little did I know that he was drawing to his King and hit a runner-runner flush. I was prepared to die with my hand, so I should have re-raised or pushed his flop bet and tried to make him fold. Oh well. Another lesson learned.
