      not really a hand you could play different (though should've /could've pushed flop right away there ;) ) but posted it because found it very funny and villain went totally berserk after sawing the result. (even though it didn't really hurt his stack)

      On another sidenote, on the 3rd attempt finally starting to get a good grip at NL100 SSS and making ok profit. It's quite funny how most of the players call here with a range they would also call a big stack and seems overall way much loser than NL50 was. I play this level a bit tighter too than I played NL50, don't like to raise pockets below 8 from any position on this limit, only call if there are enough limpers, seems to work better for me this way.

      After he reraises you I might would consider that you´re behind Two Pair or a Set, but this limit is so full of donkeys and his little donkbet more looks like a Draw (maybe 86? - I didn´t looked at the result), that I prefer to take the risk and go broke. So nice hand. :)

      you should tell your opponent that he is an idiot for playing 86s HU against a Shortstack in the first place.

      Why should he? That so called "idiot" is a great customer for him. ;)
