I Know Joker\'s good, but this just isn\'t fair.
 
SB is a crazy 60/30 LAG.
MP2 is xxTHEJOKERxx 41/9, and a regular dominator of the 10/20NL at Stars.

Say what you will about his preflop raise w/ 5c3c -- i certainly can't criticize a guy who would eat my lunch any day of the week. But I need more than anything to understand his flop call of Crazy-LAG's all-in. $997 in pot, and Joker's got to call off $537 of his chips w 4 outs -- no overcards, and zero folding equity.

Listen, I know the guy's good, but good players do not make this call. 5:1 to hit your gutshot, getting 2:1 on your money. I know he's good but...damn, just makes you think.
Feel free to rip on my short stack -- i was getting hammered.

Joker's good? That's odd. Somebody asked me if I was him because apparently when I started playing Stars heavily he stopped showing up. But I had played against him a decent amount and was kind of assuming that the person asking me if I was joker was insulting me...

theres 2 explanations.

1) misclik
2) for whatever reason he thought the guy would tilt if he hit


1 is infinitely more likely than 2 seeing as the guy was shortstacked.

What is your Stars handle, sir? I'm curious how many hands we've played.
