I had to face a very loose and aggressive player at 5/10 cents on P*stars the other night.
It wasn't possible he held strong hands continuously; he wasn't just entering but rather raising each and every pot.
If he got re-raised, he re-reraised, scaring off people with just "reasonable hands".

I decided I had to stand up to that kind of aggression, pushing all-in a pair of Queens pre-flop. He turned over a pair of Aces :eek: this time; however a third Queen flashed on the turn. :)

After several dozen hands, he was back to his very intimidating habits, so I made the ridiculous mistake of pushing all-in pre with just A9off :rolleyes: out of indignation, as if I were short-stacked (I wasn't; I was deep and winning).
He again called and turned over KK, only to see another A on the turn:D
Most scandalously lucky hand (and session, as a whole) of my life, probably.

Good work.

Remember that whale from my other thread? He was playing 78% of his hands. He only had about $5 left in his stack, and I woke up with KK. I raise, he reraised, I put him all in. He called. AA.

As my friend said, sometimes the sun even shines on a dog’s ass.
