Is it a winning or a recovery when you win your money back from a villain?
I know this is possibly a stupid, fish question. But surprisingly, I just can't see tonight's winnings as a winning. Here's the full story.
Over a month ago, I've got bad beated by an idiot over this hand.
Then tonight, after a month, I meet this SAME player again at the casino at my table.
I had a full stack(bcz buy-ins are $40-$100) of $130 while he sat down with $100. I was on button with Aces pre-flop while he was mp+2. He came in pre-flop raising to $8. cutoff called. I reraised with my pocket Aces pre-flop to $30 flat. sb, bb, folded, mp+2 and cutoff called. Flop came out 6 6 2. Mp+2 bets out for $20. Cutoff folded. I just shoved all-in. He calls me and rolls over pocket 5s. THANKFULLY, 5 didn't come up on the turn and river, so I won the huge pot. I took his stack. it was like $227 pot or something like that. But rather than seeing this as a winning, I keep thinking to myself that I got my money back from month ago that I should've rightfully won and that if anything, he's still got $150 more yet to pay me back.
Is this a problem? I never had these kind of thoughts when I played online but when I play live and I actually play with someone in person, this is how I feel when I win my money back from someone who previously bad beated me and took my money. I have entitlement that I should've had it long time ago and right now, I have a hard time considering it as a winning.
