      The problem was that I had previously 4 times min raised on flop (not in this table but in 4 diffrent tables, those minraises just make you angry). I don't know what to do with those minraises it can mean strength (like here where opponent had AA) or it can be weakness/bluff (like one opponent was trying to bluff me in one of the played hands in my session today). So what I started to do (and which is probably quite wrong :D ): I started to fight fire with fire, if they minraised me, I minraised them. The feedback was, that minraise shows rather strength because every hand opponents were pushing to my min-minraise and showed overpair etc. In this particular hand villain was holding KK (whata dumbass but still a sign of strength).
