Right, I mean it's hard to actually put them on anything unless they're super-transparent. Even then it can be tough to know when they really have the best hand.
My opponent didn't complain or anything. I'm having to do the short stack thing until I either rebuild + build up from $15 or so by playing the way I did I was forced to leave when no more playable hands came b4 the BB.
I finally learned my lesson, I hope. Get out with over 2x your buy-in. So in this instance I left with over a dollar having bought in with 40c. Yes I am at the moment, short-stacking, ratholing vermin. No choice.
Thankfully I'll be way ahead by the time take 2 finishes.
Sounds like you just got burned kidnovo. Ouchie. I know the feeling, wouldn't be vermin at the moment if I didn't. Anyway that's way different, I mean all the loot went in pre-flop and it was AQ vs AJ. I'd call that a cooler, not unlike AA vs KK. This was just the instance where the weak hand won.
I don't think I'd get griped over it since all the money went in pre-flop. I know me, and for some reason I never get bummed when my strong hand gets beat by a weaker but still strong hand that I know I probably wouldn't fold in the same situation. However, if I had seen the flop I might get griped, top set top kicker and all. Then again if I had been bluffing too much or was bullying a short stack, I wouldn't be able to fault them for chasing a straight or flush.
