i called this donkey a luckbox and his reply was, "luck box?"

dear donkey,

you limped aces preflop heads up with position; a trapping move, but risky, IMHO. you got all your money in pre-flop as a loser and hit a sixteen-outer (by the river - board could have paired.) getting all the money in wasn't tough b/c you called twice and as per your entire play at the table, had no thoughts of what might be out there. you simply cannot lay a hand down, which is fine EXCEPT in situations when you limp big hands to trap; then reads and the ability to know when you are beat are paramount.

i could have had a set, the top end straight, etc. all you figured was, "I GOT ACES - BET BET BET!".

so yes, you are a luckbox...and a donkey.


ps - don't misconstrue this as anger. i need donkeys like stiritup24; they allow me to play in the Sunday Million for a fraction of the cost.
