Default For your amusement - fun on the 11s (LOW content, angry opponents)

Just to lighten the mood, let me bring you some cheap entertainment from the 11s. After 4 tabling all day (my day off of work) I decided to play one more single table...

Earlier in the game, it was 6 handed, blinds were 75-150 and it was folded to me on the button with 86o. I was down to 695 chips. I pushed, was called by bigstack SB with KTo, won the hand... So he's a little salty with me later on in the game... And of course, I'm a fish. (Actually, you guys might disagree with a some of my play, but the chat got to be entertaining.)

First, we have a case of weak / tight big stack play:

Total number of players : 3
Seat 4: shbball7 (3555)
Seat 7: cubsfan71 (935)
Seat 8: whtsoxstink (3510)
shbball7 posts small blind (100)
cubsfan71 posts big blind (200)
** Dealing down cards **

whtsoxstink folds.
shbball7 calls (100)
cubsfan71 raises (735) to 935

shbball7 folds.
Creating Main Pot with $1135 with cubsfan71
** Summary **
Main Pot: 1135
shbball7 balance 3355, lost 200 (folded)
cubsfan71 balance 1135, bet 935, collected 1135, net +200
whtsoxstink balance 3510, didn't bet (folded)

And another... getting over 2:1 pot odds with me easily covered:

whtsoxstink balance 3060, lost 150 (folded)

Now it starts to get very funny. The guys had been mini-raising alot, so I decided to just gambool and try to play my TJs heads up...

And now... the coup de grace! I couldn't resist calling here. I was getting a good price. Does anybody else make this call??? I figured that if I fold, I have zero FE the next hand. Plus, I'm getting 1.75:1 and I'm only a 3:2 dog to AK.

Not sure what the other replies may be, but here is my opinion:
We all take our share of abuse in this game. They may be bad beats, bad bets, and so it goes. I think you got very lucky on a couple of hands (I know you know that) and these guys started to get frustrated. Their mistake is that they got vocal about it. The criticism I have is as follows...

You really were feeding off their frustration in my opinion, and maybe that's smart poker, as it give you an edge, and others make errors on tilt.
I recognize that I don't need to reply to this post, but you started it out..For your amusement..
I wasn't(amused)

I like when they get mad, its usually the 11/22's that get the maddest i've found. If i've had a bad day or maybe took a beat that got to me and feel i'm going on tilt but still want to play because i love the game i'll go play in a couple of the ten or 20 dollar sng's and just have some fun maybe play every hand, play the push or fold game, mini raise every hand/bet out every flop. Just do some weird things to blow off steam. You can catch some people just getting heated up at you and it just makes me laugh and puts me back in a better mood to play good poker again. It helps me at least.

Players at the table hurt my feelings all the time by saying mean stuff just because I go all-in all the time on the bubble. They say I suck, that I'm terrible, threaten me. One guy kept making 3xBB bets and then daring me to go all-in. So I did, and he folded. He did this TWICE. They all berated me as I worked from 4th place to first. Then when I lost a coinflip heads-up to take 2nd place, the winner responded "that's skill b1tch!".

So, if you have to stand up for yourself once in awhile, it's okay.

I appreciate the support, but I wasn't really standing up for myself... I was just friggin tired after playing all day. I don't normally respond but the one guy was getting so mad (without me saying anything) that I finally couldn't resist just for the sheer entertainment value.

And I actually don't think that my call with 64s was all that bad.... I think that the hand was actually fairly interesting, but it got lost in the whole admitted stupidity of my post.

Yeah, I mean you do only have 3x BB after posting. And there's some potential with the suited one gapper. I guess I'd think about calling this, but I'd probably still fold and push one of the next 2 hands instead.

Pretty good, I have heard way funnier when I made it ITM at a 5+1 playing like a complete maniac for tilt relief.
