I dont expect much braining about this hand... just think its an interesting and a fun one... and since its a live hand Ill try to bring it as more real as it was...

Prestory: Was about 5AM and after 4 hours playing at the other table... I sat down on a 0.50€/1€ table ... 30-40 mins in to play... 4 of the players left so it became a pretty much silent 3 player table...
A guy entered the casino and sat down to my left (keep seing play the 5€/10€ NL limits... and I remember somebody saying hes a loneshark or something like that... love his leather jacket :)) with only 100€ ... he played 2 hands... both raised preflop with AJ & AQ... first hand he flopped a straight... second 2 pair... won both the pots... i folded preflop both...


Hand:
His UTG and straddles to 2€ & instantly straddle to 4€... He showes a smile and says "Now theres a my kind of guy! I like you already!" I smile back and say Im very flattered...
SB & BB folds and he calls my 2€ straddle without looking at his cards keeping that funny smile on his face... I look down and see :10c4::10s4:...
So I look at him and just when I wanted to tell him that Im sorry but Im gonna have to raise he says "Ill call whatever you raise without looking at my cards!"...
That really made me think for a few seconds and decide on raising 10€ more...
He doesnt stop smiling and says something like "Bah... I feel lucky... Im allin!"
I had about 70€ left at that time and he had me well covered...

what do you do? :)

if he definitely hasn't looked at his cards, snapcall/fistpump sounds good to me.

if the worst comes to the worst, you can accuse him of being an angle-shooting douche when he shows you AA. :)

He's a loan shark?

Easy shove, and hope you don't bump into him in the parking lot afterwards.

duh!

If you can't call his blind-all-in with TT, quit playing poker. Take up bingo or keeno or something.

Even if he's looked at his cards, given your description of him, I would still call. He's going to be a SLAG, whether by choice or because he just doesn't care. He's playing for guts and glory, not money, so punish him for it.

right...

so how did the hand end...
I turned the cards over just to show what hes up against (without calling or folding)... he wiped that smile in a second and said "you know what you have to do..."... I called and he turned both red K8 off...

I standed up full of joy and "ordered" the dealer "no kings!"
Just at the time I was saying that the dealer fliped the flop and the first card that you see before he actually spreads the three cards was :kc4:...
As soon as I saw that first king I turned cursing... only thing I heard was him saying "I told you I feel lucky..."...
took me 5-6 seconds to calm down and to realize "it just poker"... why did I even play when I knew things like this happen and sometimes even Im the guy on the other side of the table and catching my 2-3 outters...
Flop was 2 clubs... running clubs on turn & river... I made a flush :)
I said "poetic justice" and sat back down...
