this guy showed two bluffs with a min raise preflop then min bets on the flop and turn, then over bet the river. so he min raised this hand, i call and hit my flop hard. he then proceeded to call me a moron. i felt i had to call this no matter what my whole cards. it was a donkish play but it worked out for me.

That's great, I love it when players have no idea how to play premium hands, letting the BB in when holding KK is suicide, and he killed himself there:)

This is why you raise big pf with big hands or any playable hand really.
Got to push out the crazy hands you wont see coming.

He asked for it. I don't necessarily think its the wrong play on his side because action folded to him and with KK he tried to get some value so he just minraised.

TBH this is one of the few spots where I'd also slowplay AA or KK. So while I understand the minraise, fact is that if you get outdrawn you can't complain, no reason for him to call you a moron. He tried to trap you which is fine but there's always a risk in that and you need to accept it.

i ended up busting him later on, with him, another player and myself left. then eventually won the SNG. it was fun. i told him he played them wrong and he proceeded to call me a donk and try to prove his point to the other player without giving details. i added him to my friends list so i can bust him up again. he was such an easy read. his name was bigthings25 on PS.

i think he played it right, but it happens to me too everytime i dont get a large raise in preflop , i limp in utg sometimes hoping someone will raise so i can reraise but no one does and i get it crammed after my too late post flop raise by ace rag or small set. you didnt suck out though you had best hand with only four hands better at the time . he found out it aint no fun when the rabbit gets the gun. :) keep on chiefing.

His Fault

It's his fault that you won that hand, he didn't raise like he was supposed to preflop. Raising only double the BB w/ pkt KKs is foolish. You were BB & only had to call 50 more...so what!?!? He called you names? Well, that's ironic because he was the "moron" on that hand not you. NH cheifer77
