Yes, Donk, you did add your contributions. Most of them, however, weren't particularly useful. However, there's still hope. This last post of yours was the most coherent one you have made. Let's take a look at it.You wrote:"a) [calling] preflop was a huge mistake" Here you agree with pretty much everyone else who has responded and you agree with me as well. I admitted in my original post that this was a mistake. Whether or not it was a "huge" mistake or not is fairly irrelevant and since the reasons for it being a mistake are pretty apparent, I don't see any justification to continue discussing this aspect of the hand. "b.) your logic for justifying your play made no sense" I assume you are referring to the part where you wrote "#2 under the section of [your] analysis is just comical". Well that comment, as well as the one I reference here aren't particularly useful. Why was my analysis comical/did not make sense? Did you not understand the words I was saying? Did you not agree with them? "c.) even contemplating folding the flop is
retarded [ludicrous]" Ignoring your course language for the moment, here it would seem you actually disagree with most of the others who have responded to this thread who would have played it safe and folded post-flop. While I obviously disagree with their final judgment, I fail to see why at least "contemplating" a fold is wrong in your eyes. Do you always call for all of your chips when you don't have the nuts without even thinking about what the other person might have? That hardly seems like a +EV way to go about things. Now, as for your other comments here, I will just say this... If I had played the hand perfectly, I would have to be a pretty narcissistic SOB to spend the time to post about it in a forum like this. I don't need to be congratulated by random anonymous people in order feel self-worth. Also, given the title of this thread, and my original post, it should be obvious I am not averse to having people tell me they think I did something wrong or disagree with me.However, it should be equally obvious that I do not use this message board as an opportunity to spew whatever random thought is crossing my brain at the moment. I am prepared to explain anything I say if it is not understood, and defend anything I say if it is not agreed with, and also do something most people don't like to do nowadays... change my mind. You see, this process is called "a conversation". For thousands of years, it is how people communicated and learned about and from each other. I guess in our modern tweet-filled world, people believe that exposing their random, ill-formed thoughts at any given moment is equivalent to communicating. My personal belief is that this trend is both sad and detrimental to the human race, but that is a conversation for another day.In the meantime, you are of course free to continue to make "drive-by" posts, calling people names and making barely-intelligible, incoherent statements. But you shouldn't be surprised when others call you out on it in this, or any other arena.
