Runner runner flush draws are gold

I'm not one to moan about bad beats because I realize it's part of poker. But this hand happened two hands after my KK got cracked by 88 on the river (preflop all in) against a shorty... and admittedly, it stung a little... Nothing like a bad beat post when I haven't posted in a while.... but this one is comical, IMO.

Full Tilt Poker Game #4887762642: Table Triest (6 max) - $2/$4 - No Limit Hold'em - 22:53:16 ET - 2008/01/16
Seat 1: blackjacksucks ($77.60)
Seat 2: RecessRampage ($720.50)
Seat 3: UMD Tennis ($457.05)
Seat 4: bmwfund ($74)
Seat 5: prago ($712.45)
Seat 6: cerilloin ($441)
cerilloin posts the small blind of $2
blackjacksucks posts the big blind of $4
The button is in seat #5
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to RecessRampage [Ah Ad] <--- KK two hands earlier (though cracked) and now AA??? Is my name Astin???
RecessRampage raises to $14 <--- UTG
UMD Tennis folds
bmwfund calls $14
prago folds
cerilloin folds
blackjacksucks calls $10

So two shorties call. I'm getting this all in pretty much on any flop.

*** FLOP *** [4d 8d 9c]
blackjacksucks checks
RecessRampage has 15 seconds left to act
RecessRampage bets $37
bmwfund folds
blackjacksucks calls $37

Shorty commits over half his stack to call. Who knows, maybe a set? I mean what doesn't he shove here with???? If it's good enough to call, should be good enough to raise... right????

*** TURN *** [4d 8d 9c] [3c]
blackjacksucks bets $26.60, and is all in
RecessRampage calls $26.60
blackjacksucks shows [Tc 6c]
RecessRampage shows [Ah Ad]

My thought??? When he shoved, I thought "ok, so NOW he shoves his diam.... what the fuck??? back door club draw???"

*** RIVER *** [4d 8d 9c 3c] [5c]
blackjacksucks shows a flush, Ten high
RecessRampage shows a pair of Aces
blackjacksucks wins the pot ($168.20) with a flush, Ten high

Before I can even complete my thought, the club gets there... I guess he was waiting for a 7 when he called the flop... I don't care how you spin it, that was gross...

How can he fold, his implied odds were huge!

Tough break buddy.

Still, I think my flop allin with a set of Aces losing when he hit a runner-runner flush with A3o (flush to the freakin' 3!) is worse than this one by a country mile....
