Frustrating Night

I played some 1/2 NLHE last night with the Blogger crew. All the usual suspects. All night I was card dead and finally got some good cards when Sucko showed up. He berated me in a play where I made like $150. The flop comes all hearts and I cold call his initial bet and raise him another 90-100 on the turn. He cold calls that. He folds to my $50 river bet. He then says I gave him odds to suckout on me. I ask the standard question "What did you put me on?" and he could not answer that.. SO how the hell does he know I gave him odds for anything? I easily could have had the nut flush.. or Aces and Kings with the K of hearts.. or maybe I totally read his weak ass attempt to steal the pot and had nothing at all. It is hard to say I have odds for anything if you do not know what I had. In addition to that IF he was drawing to some sort of heart which I would think was likely.. AND assuming I did not have a bigger heart because we know you were drawing to some low ass heart THEN he is going to hit his hand on the turn 1:6 times or some fucked up number like that... so if he had $600 in implied odds when calling my bet when I had $80 left behind then yeah he was given perfect odds. Thanks for the donations though. Without you I would be down for the past few nights. I honestly have a lot of respect for Sucko's game but I do not think I gave odds for anything except making some money.

Here is the hand History because I am notorious for mixing things up:

lucko21 raises to $7
jeciimd folds
smokkee folds
GSW16 folds
doom_aces folds
bwileypt folds
SirFWALGMan calls $7
MiamiDon folds
butchhoward folds
*** FLOP *** [7h Th Ah]
lucko21 bets $12
SirFWALGMan calls $12
*** TURN *** [7h Th Ah] [3s]
lucko21 bets $28
SirFWALGMan raises to $70
lucko21 has 15 seconds left to act
lucko21 calls $42
*** RIVER *** [7h Th Ah 3s] [Jc]
lucko21 checks
SirFWALGMan bets $50
lucko21 folds
Uncalled bet of $50 returned to SirFWALGMan
SirFWALGMan mucks
lucko21 adds $35.45
SirFWALGMan wins the pot ($178)

I took my new found winnings and played some 25/NL to end the night. For the second night in a row I run Kings into Aces. Ouch. When am I going to find these alleged fish who push pre-flop with Queens? Jesus. So I basically broke even for the night after dropping a buyin' at Razz and winning two HU matches. Cash is the grind baby.

Looks like you're on to something here waffles. Everybody that reads doesn't want to comment.

Without knowing how much is behind if Lucko flopped set and you flopped flush you may have given him decent implied odds to go Iggy on you and chase boat.

Doubt it is case as Lucko did add on at end of hand.

I don't think current measurement techniques can judge whether yo or Lucko is a bigger donket.

People aren't going to shove QQ preflop to you if you don't open up your 3betting range preflop, but I guess you can continue playing 10/3 at full ring because playing 9 handed takes very little skill.
