Flopped 2 pair; got rekt NL hold em evaluation

Hey guys; i started playing online poker a few months ago and i thought it would be fun to share some of the bad beats i encounter.

Obviously i need to learn from my mistakes but people play bad and get rewarded for it time after time :P

For the sake of discussion, my name on here is SharkEater.. cause i intend to eat the sharks...

***** Hand History for Game 60650589 *****
$0.01/$0.02 USD NL Texas Hold'em
Table Hillside (Real Money)
Seat 6 is the button
Total number of players : 6/6
Seat 2: BillyBest ( $4.59 USD )
Seat 1: BlackKnight8 ( $4.43 USD )

Seat 6: SharkEater ( $1.41 USD ) ~ me
BlackKnight8 posts small blind [$0.01 USD].
BillyBest posts big blind [$0.02 USD].
Murphy44 posts big blind + dead [$0.03].
** Dealing down cards **
Dealt to SharkEater [ Td 8s ]
SWPPat70 folds
Murphy44 raises [$0.14 USD]
Prep04 folds
SharkEater calls [$0.16 USD] yolo
BlackKnight8 folds
BillyBest folds
** Dealing Flop ** [ 6s, 8h, Tc ] this is where some yolo moments pay off; hitting a huge top 2 pair on a flop like this can really punish a strong Ace or overpair that will continuation bet...
Murphy44 checks ~ his check is suspicious so i'll bet a little to test the waters.
SharkEater bets [$0.02 USD]
Murphy44 raises [$0.40 USD]
SharkEater calls [$0.38 USD] here i think i am trapping and that any Ax-overpair will shove on a shitty turn...

** Dealing Turn ** [ 7c ] the seven comes and i feel he can use the guise of a straight to make me fold with Ax- or just taking it down there
Murphy44 is all-In [$1.05 USD] he shoves and i just have to call it off; unless he had 9s he couldnt be so aggressive on the flop to really have the straight...

SharkEater is all-In [$0.85 USD]
** Dealing River ** [ 2c ]
Murphy44 shows [ 9s, 2s ]a straight, Six to Ten. of course 9-2....
SharkEater doesn't show [ Td, 8s ]two pairs, Tens and Eights.
Murphy44 wins $0.20 USD from the side pot 1 with a straight, Six to Ten.
Murphy44 wins $2.71 USD from the main pot with a straight, Six to Ten.

Join me next time folks where i evaluate another terrible hand!
