that just shows yer defferent players, an their types. i aint sure yer played it wrong, however, yer playing an extremely aggressive player that isnt arsed about cards. against them i like to ask serious questions. if i limped 66OTB with 1 limper, the BB (who yer already know from yer post) who likes to be the aggressor an isolate limpers, when he raises i am pushing all of it. (pre flop) sure sometimes i get caught but other times i claim chips of someone that dont want to call with j4. the aggressive players win because they're allowed to dominate the game. dont allow them that. admittedly yer have to be careful, an yer going to make the wrong decision at the wrong time, however, no poker player on the planet makes the right decision everytime.
my newest rule for poker (the last 12 months) is when aggressive players come to the table choose yer spot an then ask them the questions as oppossed to weakly answering them.
still wasnt the wrong way to play it, just hindsight gives a differing slant.
