      Ok i thought i played it well.. I couldnt fold but i just wasnt sure because after the hand lots of people started laughing at me in chat..

      this is my second day playing big stack strategy.

      I have changed over from SSS because full tilt will not allowed SSS any more in 2010. Im reading all articles from basic and starting at NL25

      (because at nl10 people never fold and suck out etc - not real poker)

      thanks for your input fakedurrr :)

      Raise preflop bigger to not give him good odds to call with hands like 55 or 78s, here his preflop call isnt really a mistake.

      On flop its bet/call. You cant assume, that he 3bet/called with 7x hand.

      Ofcourse make a note, that this opponent can make deceptive 3bets.

      4-bet a littebit bigger to 8$, right now you give too good odds to stack your aces postflop with any 2 cards
      postflop: b/c is ok, he has there enough times overpairs or draws that you can b/c with aces
