What's with the "pts"?

As long as this is limit and not NL then it's pretty standard and villain is just a donk who got lucky.

It`s Limit ??

Damn, I just wasted 15 minutes of my life trying to work out how to tactfully tell Popwiz he`s playing like a complete muppet, min-raising that way. :eek:

first of all, too low of a raise preflop, 3-4xBB is the size I would put out and if I had a caller then I would double my previous bet with that kind of flop to let the donk know I flopped an ace and chase him away from any draws he may have.......but this is just my opinion.

The only thing that would make this hand anything but completely standard is strong reads. If you don't have those, any other action in this hand would have been a - likely failed - attempt at fancy play.

For future hands, don't include the results. They're not of interest.
