why I like playing with donks
I hear a lot of people make the claim that you cant win at this level or you cant beat donks or its impossible to win a donkament. I've never understood this or agreed with it. Poker is the only game where people think they have a better chance against good players than the poor ones.
But me I love the donks. They're the only people I can win against at times. I love it when I bet top pair or better all the way and I get called down with bottom pair. Ill take the variance.
I normally don't play tournaments. But I just took first place in a 49 player field, 5 dollar buy in. Not a huge tournament I know.
Im not bragging because Im some great player. I won this thing because I was getting great cards and people kept calling me. Against better players I would not have had such a large stack going into the final three let alone make it to the final table.
I had a player call my flop semibluff bet with nothing. The turn gave him top pair. check, check. The river makes my flush and he shoves.
I hit a set opponent has middle pair and I get him all in.
I three bet my pocket jacks vs pocket nines. flop comes two queens and my opponent shoves.
I limp with pocket aces (800 blind)opponent decides to raise half of his stack with KJo. Villain had 9000 in chips. this was the average stack size villain was not short stacked. Then villain calls my all in making me second in chips.
After that hand the table leader calls my three-bet then shove on flop with just two high cards. After the only hand I had shown down was aces!
So I say bring on the donks, and Lets find more donks to replenish the donk field that we keep losing.
