      Did i play my AA correctly? I think that my preflop re-raise is to small, and a better play would be to go directly all in. On the flop destiny has decided that the fish should win... I can't find a fold on the flop...

      There is no other way to play AA than raise ...
      If you get beaten while raising, you got unlucky, simple.

      NH, WP. You dont want to price idiots out of preflop by shoving, because you want calls when you are way in front. Id have probably raised to 3x the BB, so id say $1.35 was great.

      On that flop with that size pot I am shoving no matter what. Only sets are a made hand that beats you and you can expect calls from flush drawers which are going to miss more often than hit, possibly even retarded straight drawers (anyone who speculates $1.35 preflop for 78 vs those stack sizes is a retard), and everyone with any 9 or TT-KK is going to consider a call as well.

      Sometimes the idiot fish win. Its tough but you need to take the happy view that you got your money in in front. Try and rate yourself on how you played rather than result-based and you will outlast this variance downswing which seems to be biting you hard at the moment.
