How not to play Poker

You may have noticed from previous posts that I think I am a hot shot poker player.

Well, when playing deepstacks, and OOP, (that's out of position for you "non experts" unlike me) I thought I would share this example of car crash decision making (from me), so obviously I am not the expert I think I am. I honestly have no excuse for such horrendous play....
