AKs and why I hate microtables

It's me again, building bankroll playing micro sit'n'gos.

I hate every aspect of the way this guy played. First limp-in, then call my 6xBB raise. On the flop call my 6xBB bet, then on the turn bet half the pot (20xBB).

I know I was overbetting and over-raising a little. But that's part of my playing style in these sit'n'gos. I'm raising a lot because I'm letting others do stupid mistakes that cost them chips. That's the only way you can win these micro tourneys: when I get a decent hand I go crazy. There are many crazy bluffers or loose players who'll call my raises with hands like J5 to see if they hit the flop.

By the way, this guy was later on the first player to drop out of the sng.

Gosh, I miss my $0.10/$0.25 tables on FullTilt or the $10 SnG's. I moved down from there because I couldn't afford a large enough bankroll for them.

So, what?
What is upsetting you about the way your opponent played? Are you mad because you were bet into and you had to fold?
Please explain because Im not quite following...

Looks like a pretty standard fold to me, where is the problem? Not every time you get AK means you will win the hand

No it's just a standard hand analysis. :) The rest of the rant was something else.

The problem I have here is the way the other guy played. Maybe he had nothing. Maybe he had a monster. Is there anything I could or should have done otherwise? Should I have played AK from the small blind like that?

Well, your PF play is fine; standard raise with AK. Though, I sometimes just like to limp in or complete when im in EP. Especially during the early levels and I want to feel out the table. I'd rather have AK in LP than in EP.
On the flop, I like the continuation bet-you're continuing to represent a big hand. However, the bet is a bit small. Its OK as a 'feeler' bet, but on a board like that with straight and flush draws showing, you're almost giving your opponent correct odds to chase. I wouldve bet out about or a little over half pot here.
On the turn, Js completes a lot of possible draws. You opponent can bet betting into you with a whole lot of hands that have you beat. I think your fold here was standard.

Really dont understand why you dont like villains play. He could have flopped a set, or have something like q,j. Maybe he has kings or aces or maybe has absolutely nothing and just bluffed you off the best hand.

being upset a little at the villain and bringing this hand up IS the problem. but in a way could be good for you, because as you can see from the previous posters....this hand is normal. and for you to think otherwise is the area that needs improvement IMO.
