It seems lately that people are willing to bet their stack on any two suited cards, face-x, Ax, gut-shot, etc. I saw a guy in the same game above call a substantial all-in bet with one club in his hand, one on the board, and get his runner-runner flush. WTF??? He had no pair, and no other draws.
I think that the popularity of poker has grown so much, that now "everybody's doing it" and a lot of these people are clueless. The bad part is, they ALL seem to get lucky on a showdown w/ me everytime...I think I need a break.
Look Tammy, this is the sort of play that you WANT to see. You want your raises called with inferior hands, if they draw out aginst you so be it, its the luck factor that the donks depend on and that you also depend on.
Let them have their pots when they hit a gutshot, learn the skill of letting go of hands especially in N/L when your dead, its a very tough skill to learn. But you AKs on a missed flop with several callers is usually no longer the best hand, a continuation bet is all you can do, and then shut down.
These donks are my favourite players, i hate ulra tight tables, let the donks chase, mess up their odds
and before you know it youll be raking it in. Just learn to give up when you know theve hit.
