Pot sized bet and I made my hand on the river. He will never see it coming.

columbo shows [2d 2c] a full house, Twos full of Tens

oops, it was me who never saw it coming.

arrondubai0108 wins the pot (5,605) with a full house, Tens full of Fours
columbo stands up

Seriously? I hit the 2 outs the will break me here? I dont even call the river bet without that 2 here. ARGH.

Even more seriously. Could ANYONE have escaped this? Could you REALLY make an argument that I should have CALLED here????

Not escapable, don't even bother yourself with it. Just chalk it up to one of your mathematically-dictated tournament exits and move on to the next mtt.

It sucks, but I would not sweat a beat like that. You played it perfectly the whole way and the river made it impossible for you not to get stacked. How could you just call the river, yknow? You're hoping the guy has a Ten and will call your allin, of course.

Try raising the flop.

Don't limp.

Sorry, I meant "try raising preflop"

Sadly an almost exact situation happened to me on the bubble in my last home game... made my full house on the river (with 22) when someone slowplaying their aces had flopped the boat... I try to tell myself I could have called but really, it was unavoidable.
