raise 10xBB or more pre-flop and gain nothing but the blinds, or play it the proper way as you had and get unlucky.
Nothing you really could have done here, you just came up against someone who doesn't know how to calculate odds properly,
Just keep this player in mind the next time your at the table with him/her and bet harder against this player.

I disagree, this player is obviously a calling station, so in the future we should value bet our strong hands, dont fire more than one bluffing bullet.

This is the type of player you should want to keep in the pot because against this player, more often than not, you will take down a nice sized pot unless they hit their 16%ers.
