The ensuing tirade was, of course, ridiculous.
Why is my shove so bad but your call of that shove with an unmade hand so genius?
Why can't two good hands just go to a coin flip? Yeah, I felt like gambling! I've been playing really disciplined and folding to 3-bets for a couple of days. If I can't stand up with jacks against a small blind opening range then why play.
What makes you so special that I should fold everything just because you put money in?
Why don't you send your address and I'll just mail you checks?
Because some people can't grab the knowledge of when they are actually beat Pre-flop. They get in their head that Not just AA and KK are monsters preflop but that AK and AQ should never be folded preflop no matter how many people are in the hand and no matter the raises. The defeat of it just overcomes them that "WHY" in the world would someone call with just a Face Pair. A lot of people aren't really diving deep into the mathmatics of the Poker hand in front of them just Instantly Boom AQ best hand...period. If this was deeper into the tourney I mean I can see him being "mad" but he still should never be mad at you personally. It was a Good Hand and a Good Win. Congrats
