They won´t get away with your chips every time if u just keep playing good poker. Just tag them as fishes and take em´ down tommorow when u have get over that bad beat.
Just remember that those donky idiots are them who gives us those chips at the tables in the long run.

I belive these donks is those who spend most money in pokersites and thats why they get rewarded for donk play Smile When they get rewarded once they think they get rewarded always and spend alot of money that way. Thats my conclusion. Cool

Simple.

Those players give action and create rake. And the sites love rake.

But even those donks can't get lucky all the time. So they will bust in the end.

If you check the stats of most of these people they are on minus so there's nothing rigged and they are losing money.

These are the people that actually keeps my playing EV+. I'm not very good myself, and the only reason I can cash out like 1500 $ each year, is that there are a lot worse players out there.

I would probably keep playing even if I was a +/- 0 player, just for the fun of it, but I don't mind getting a few bucks at the end of the year.

And of course they are bound to draw out on you, every now and then. The worse they are, the more times they are gonna draw out on you, because the more times you are all in against them with an 80 % hand. And one times in five they will win. And you will remeber that 5th time, while forgetting the other 4, because, after all, you were 'supposed' to win them, so there's nothing strange there. You will remeber that 5th time when the donk hade that unnatural luck and drew out on you, once again!

And then you will start a thread like this on a pokerforum, and someone like me will write an answer like this.

Smile

donks don't usually win games, therefore; their average of winning is very low... you should be thankful to play against them.. Blink

If you talk about cashgames then I can say Ive been donked like that hundreds of times, but I can also say Ive done it myself also loads of times - its pretty regular to play implied odds in cashgames. If you want example from highrollers have a look at Negreanus play or Dwans one.

From poker sites I can also bring out PKR.com pro Beyne - who rolled up 100 000$ with few months in pkr.com highest stakes playing very agressively every single hand (saw myself pot of 8k when he called Kevboy´s 44 with 72 and hit 7 lol). Few weeks after that there were in one point no players in high stakes who wanted to play against him, because he owned and destroyed every single one of them lol.

So I understand your frustration when you lose big pot with "good cards" as you said, but think about the times when youve done the same, and before you start calling players donks, analyze the hand and make sure it really was a absurd suckout. If youre good player losing few of those pots should not harm your bankroll.

If that happened with you in tourney then I can understand the frustration, been myself fked up in very deep and big cash few times Cool

Yep, I always think the same when I'm being kicked off by one of these donks but ... meanwhile they have won and, most of the time, very big pots. Just few minutes ago, KK in my hands, I raise, a donk re-raise and I call. J37 rainbow.He shoved and, of course, I called. 84o. Guess turn & river! 88 of course. The result: an incredible pot playing like a donk
