      i got called a donk for raising too much in a $2 SnG when it was 3 handed and i was raising 2.5 BB with hands like A10,K10 or Q9 to steal the blinds and stay aggressive and get in with the best hand. The guy who called me it never raised preflop and only limped and when he hit he went all in, surely he was the donk and not me yeah?

      And also when i had less than 13 BB and was pushing any average 2 cards like 910 he said i was rubbish because i went all in too much

      i think you shouldnt care what random ppl say on internet coz you prolly will never see him again or play vs him and if you happen to play vs him again be happy coz he is big fish by the way you described him :)

      I would have raised more. 3x or 4x the BB.

      Unless we call you a donk, your a donk

      So if they say your a donk, they are the donks

      Easy to remember and quite true :]

      Dw about these loosers they are the donks and they just don't like the fact that your better than them and they don't know how to beat you. It happends to all of us, i just played some $11 Sit and Goes and some guy had a go at me coz i raised from the button with A K and lost to the BB's Q 9, he was sitting in the SB and told me i should of flat called so that he would of flat called with his 10 3 on suit and won the pot knocking the other guy out, he then went on to ask me if it was the first time i had played poker lol. Obviously a complete n00b but hey who gives a fuck.

      lol its guys like that who should not gamble, if they dont like agressive play they should play bingo or some other game besides No-Limit Holdem.
      and 3 handed with those cards you could easily push all in not just 3 or 4 BB's
      well played anyway, i love it when sore losers moan

      That's very usual, I get called a donk for making calls with odds (like against miniraises) and calling with ace high on the river when I'm sure my opponent is bluffing.

      paraphrased from helemalniiks, cause you know... that's what i do in my spare time:

      these players are losing players. so therefore, if they are complimenting you, you're doing something wrong. inversely, if they're insulting you, you could very well be playing right :) .
