That's all you would get with a preflop raise like that where I used to play (they got raided by the Dallas Police Department last night and SWAT was with them to boot! Really happy I wasn't there for that, but now I've got to find a new place to play .). Anyway, that's a steep preflop raise, but if the tables are typically that loose there, I need to start playing at Full Tilt.
Really bad luck on that hand though. Sorry to hear about it.
One very loose table because it was 6-handed, and there were 2 guys in particular, one including FBT, who would open with a 3-4x BB bet with suited connectors reguarly under the gun. The winning % of AA sinks to about 50% I think with 3 or so callers, so I raised it 7.5x BB under the gun as to not draw many callers.
Don't misunderstand, if you can get a caller preflop with a 7.5 times the big blind raise preflop, then definitely do it. I'm just amazed that the table is that crazy loose. Even 6 handed that's insane.
