Something similar happened to me recently, I think it was Cake Poker
or UltimateBet I was playing on at the time.
It was early on in the $50 Freeroll event and there was a one guy going all in on every hand, making it rather a tedious game. Obviously the better players were folding, although there were always 1 or 2 players at the table that would chance their arm.
After about 6 hands of this one idiot going all in, sometimes winning lots, sometimes losing lots, I had had enough of the tourney in general. I get dealt 23c and push all-in on the bluff... he calls with AK and someone else calls with AQ... the cards were turned over and to cut a long story short, I nailed the flush and knocked him out
The chat box then turned blue for the next five minutes as I was told;
" ... I can only imagine what that stands for!
" ... I know what that means!!
I can't imagine why, as far as I'm concerned, 'he who lives by the sword, dies by the sword'
If idiots are going to make wreckless all-in calls, early on in a tournament, then they should expect the harsh concequences when beaten. I thought the wide variety of hand possibilities is what makes poker, Poker!
It just goes to show that these types of players have watched a training vid and then EXPECT the AA, AK, KK etc. to win automatically, just because it's advised that the value of the card is more important than the suits. They have not considered the range of hands that can easily beat 3 of a kind!
Although, when playing in a $50 freeroll on Carbon yesterday, I encountered a similar thing again. Early stages of the tourny... I manage to amass about 3K in chips and then get transfered to a different table. There's one guy at the new table, with 6K, whilst everyone else is in the region of 900-1200chips. He the proceeds to go all-in for EVERY hand, regardless of what he's holding.
It was impossible to bet, every call or raise was met with an all-in response. I got bored and went all in with a KQs only to be caught the one time he had a decent hand with AA!!!
I'm not bitter or twisted about it, I just hope I don't meet the likes of them at a poker table in the future....
