    THIS DONKEY JUST MADE ME SOOOOOOOO ANGRY HOW CAN HE PLAY LIKE THIS AND WIN?!?!?!?!? IF I TRY THAT I ALWAYS LOSE!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!?!? I know my preflop raise was badly sized and maybe the flop bet too but I think going allin was good. He might have had Ax with higher kicker or even 2 pair or 3 of a kind and I would have been fine with that but noooooooo he has frikn rubbish and he calls a preflop raise, AND RAISES MY BET ON THE FLOP!!!!

    hello. I think he just wanted to go all in because your stack was small already. he tried to bluff you somehow.

      Hi oooooj,

      Definitely raise more preflop, I like about .08c here since we will be out of position to the limper post flop, and his limp-calling range will be fairly weak in general and so I'd expect him to be folding a lot on the flop (unless he's a station, you gave no reads).

      On the flop I don't like your 3-bet... our hand strength isn't strong enough to warrant this much action vs. geting raised on a dry flop. Since there's no real draws we generally should assume the raise is a solid made hand. Top pair/bad kicker is not a bet/3b hand strength. He can easily have A5, 55, or even Q5s if he's loose, or have made a funkly limp with AQ to which we are drawing dead to runners.

      Edit: I just realized you are a short stack, and the 3b was actually an all in. Will leave the above as food for thought, but yeah when you start the hand with only 25bb's and you flop top pair in a raised pot, you're not folding, so it's fine. Although I hate getting raised on the flop here with only A8 none the less.

      As for the rest of your post, I normally wouldn't address the tilt-rant part (I know you're just venting), but one thing you must come to realize:

      He doesn't win. His play in this hand was poor, and although he got lucky this time (he had 5 outs on the flop so about 20% equity), I guarantee you this is not a player who is winning money at poker.
