You Euros have an unfair advantage in being able to start this thread like 6 hours earlier than us.

How Dboy got it last month is beyond me...

I hate poker so much. So I'm starting to tilt, this guy is running over me, raising big PF with anything, and because I have absolutely nothing, I gotta keep folding. He's been c/r me on flops and generally playing aggressively, so I decide to try to play a little tricky.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t50 (2 handed)

Hero (t1365)
Button (t1635)

Preflop: Hero is BB with A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">Button raises to t200</font>, Hero calls t150.

Obviously I should 3-bet here, but I figured he was raising w/ nothing and that he would just insta-fold. I also figured he would be any flop, so calling would be better. Also, when I start to go crazy from running horribly, I start to make stupid plays (mainly out of going insane from repeatedly having my opponents always fold and I hit a flop or check-raise or shove when I miss).


Flop: (t400) T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

alright so this is an okay flop, I'll just check and when he c-bets, I'll c/r and I'll pick up a decent pot.

Hero checks, Button checks.

Turn: (t400) 4[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

WTF? He checked behind? Alright, he's gonna fold to any bet, so why don't I play tricky. I'll bet small and he'll think I'm stabbing at the pot and he'll raise me big and continue crapping on me like he's been doing for the past 15 hands.

<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t50</font>, Button calls t50.

He called?! Now I concoct a brilliant plan...

River: (t500) K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

I'll c/r him!

Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">Button bets t250</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t500</font>

Perfection. I've finally made this LAG pay.

<font color="#CC3333">Button raises to t1200</font>

F%&amp;$ F*$% F!@$ I know I'm beat. I'm certain I'm beat, but I just can't do it. It's amazing how badly I managed to play this hand on every street. This is why I'll never make it past the 11s.

Hero calls t615 (All-In).

Villain turns over Ac9c.

Final Pot: t2730

Somekid, you have to bet a ton more on the turn. Flat calling OOP with AA is fine, but you can't do that and slowplay is postflop without super super reads and the ability to lay the hand down when you're beat.

I'd lead for at least 300 on the turn. The only decent hand he can have is probably a set imo (very small chance), otherwise I'd be surprised if he was as strong as 2nd pair.

Yeah, I realized I played this like a complete idiot. It's weird that this is how I play when I'm tilting. Anyways, I'm hoping that by posting this hand, the public shaming effect will keep me from being this much of an idiot in the future.
