True but for every time he beats your AA with T4 he will lose 86 times and you will win the rest. You want those guys to call and hard as it is to accept this:
You should cheer and applaud when they call with these garbage hands and beat your Aces!!!!
Why? Because just as you will remember this hand for a long time, so will he and maybe now T4 becomes his 'favorite hand'. He'll even tell people how lucky he gets when he plays T4. His perception of winning with this hand is as distorted as your perception of getting beat by unbelievable suckouts. OVer time AA will win 90% or more and generate a huge part of your profits while these idiots will keep losing until they give up because online poker is rigged or he doesn't have time to play or Full Tilt is full of idiots or online poker is a waste because he needs to play live where he can use his uncanny ability to peer right into the souls of his opponents to make huge profits. Or not.
FWIW I lost several hundred dollars with AA to Th4h three years ago in a live 1/2 game. This guy,who was called Captain called a $ 20 preflop raise with the hand, flopped a straight draw and went all in. The river was an Ace giving me a set but him the straight. I remember that hand like it was yesterday and Full Tilt had nothing to do with it.
