Why did you shove the river if you thought you were bluffing? What better hand did you expect him to fold? Like Trystero said, I don't expect AA to fold (and obviously he wasn't since he called with QQ). Basically the only hand he would have that he could fold, given that he has a low 3bet% is AK, which you beat, and is basically eliminated on the turn unless he's retarded. I R Confused.
I really thought he would fold AA. Calling $100 on the river when you only beat a bluff (and there really aren't many hands that I could be bluffing with) pretty much has to be a massive mistake against my range. I don't really know what my true range is, but I'm almost never calling that flop bet light.I was betting the turn to get value from both QQ and AA, expecting that he would fold both to a river shove. That's why I left him with enough (or so I thought) to fold on the river.Obviously though, because he snapcalled with QQ I'm a genius.

$100 to a billionare is not $100 to a homeless woman. there is no natural law saying how much money should be worth to you. i'm not saying you shouldn't have a respect for money, but you should realize that $200 in your bankroll is no longer $200 in your pocket. once it's in your bankroll it should be the $200 to the millionare, that is, that it no longer has any real value to you. it becomes an investment by which to make more money and nothing more. it becomes just a number or an abstract idea of a number.

I use a mac / java and it autosaves every hand I play in a folder called "java_data" > "handhistory" > (yourplayername). I would imagine if it does that from java, it must be doing that in the native software as well.

Yeah I have the HHs on my Mac from Java, but when I put then on a USB drive and upload them to my PC they're different from PC HHs (weird I know) and so HEM doesn't recognise them, and subsequently won't import them:)
