      Firstly some notes I made against this guy:
      1. He limped at least 60% of the hands
      2. checked top two pair and made a bet on the river
      3. limp/called a 6BB raise w A7s from UTG!
      4. called a raise w 86o, bluffed on the turn on a dry board
      5. limp/called a raise w K10s etc

      So considering his limping range he could have hit already on the flop, for me it was 50-50. Was my all-in a right move? How to play against those guys w SSS? Should I just stick to the SHC? How to overcome the frustration those players make?:) I almost went on tilt but left the table before and didn`t lose that much I could have.

      Hey Bubalus,

      nice hand, well played! I would play exactly the same way. If villain is really as loose as you say then he will also have to fold many missed hands on the flop which makes your push +EV and you also get worse hands to call such as FDs and straight draws and even against a pair you have quite decent equity with 2 overcards.

      As for the frustration thing, you'll just have to play enough hands against guys like this one to get used to them and see that bad players like him are your main source of income. :)
