Just seen this, what a horrible, horrible hand. Why tell the table you've got AA, that's just insane? And then to enter into dialogue with some jerk that's no longer in the hand - he should have his chat banned, or be banned full stop.

In internet poker, how do you know "for certain" what you are up against (please ignore Superuser accounts)? You don't, how can you? You have to guess. You can make educated guesses, you can make guesses based on your observations and your experience but basically poker is a series of guesses, some of which you get right, some of which you get wrong.
Sorry to go over old ground, but here you are only behind a flush. There were only 2 opponents both of whom called a 4 x raise. They didn't do that with Ax suited, the ace is on the flop. They didn't do it with Qx suited cos the Q is on the flop. That doesn't leave many hands that would have called you that you are behind. And a made flush would play this much cuter, no?
So easy push.
I also note he's got $10 exactly so assume he's just sat down? I bet he was laughing his head off when you folded.
