Bill Curran doesn't mind. Whenever he takes beats like these, he has Queen Lillybet's shoulder to cry on.

He is quite tight with liz you know.

I think he knows that with a name like that, the RNG is going to feel sorry for ya'.
The RNG is a huge fan of self-deprecation .

He's heard the saying "Most people miss the flop most of the time." He assumes that since he hit the flop, you didn't. Which is stupid since you raised. This is a guy you want at your table. He bluffs a lot because he apparently though your raise was a bluff. (People who bluff a lot always think they are being bluffed.) Furthermore, he cannot read a board and betting sequence and understand how they fit together.

Finally, as SB you act first in every betting situation post flop. This is a significant disadvantage. Raising to 4x BB with 3.5 BB already in the pot is simply too weak. AK is a drawing hand. You should have probably raised to 5 or 6BB, After the flop, your opening bet is weak. A pot sized bet would have been better. Make him pay to draw on you. You didn't. In most freerolls you don't have to invite the donks to play. They're there already. You need to give them the opportunity not to be donks. Admittedly, this one was an uber donk. However, as the bets laid, you would have been all in on the turn anyway. Larger pre and post flop bets might have made him go away. Uberdonk just got there early.
