hmmmm lets see did i deal with any of the points you mention in this post.
pots only getting above 20 cents occasionally , seem to remember saying that it was a passive tight table and that bearing this in mind for the villain to 4bet you he must be playing a super tight range and therefore a premium hand against which your hand fares badly , and that for you to be flipping with villain he would have to be 4betting a 14% range.
If you can't deal emotionally with being 4bet and you can't fold a relatively trashy hand vs his perceived range with relatively little invested in the pot you are destined to keep busting your deposits. perhaps you can show in the previous posts where you "knew he almost definitely had premium, knew that I was almost definitely going to lose, but I was on too bad a tilt from having the opportunity slip away to care".
In fact look at your original post and the actual question you asked " How difficult would it be for most players to not go on tilt from the sheer suprise and dismay at losing a 12.5x BB raise via folding at that spot? Was "the hero" a supreme idiot, or would many competent players have done the same?" . I showed you how a competent player looks at the situation , works a range out for the villain , calculates a rough equity for his hand vs villains range and then in the light of that makes a decision how to proceed. So yes to answer your question , you were a supreme idiot and a competent player would have easily folded and moved on.
If you can't deal with folding 12bb in light of a villain showing you that you are likely beaten you really should consider whether real money
NL poker is for you.
