Me Bitching about Poker

I warned you in the title, it's a whine fest and I'm hosting the party. Since I've been in Vegas I seem to be the biggest fish playing online poker in the world. Not to say I am ... just, some hands to contemplate for the moment, I'll add more later because there are absolutely tons.
Too aggressive turn/river? Not on this short of a table, and I never was 'outless'. How it has been running, I flop the nuts w/a draw to the nuts and another draw to the absolute nuts, someone else hits something, anything, during the chase.
Bridge is a total fuckin' idiot and the main donk who sucks out on me 9 times out of 10 these last two weeks. Sadly enough on this flop, even with the action preflop, I feel I'm ahead with a pair, that's how bad he is. Go figure, he 3 bets me, bets the turn .. and you see... solid play
Note how well Donald plays this hand, it may Chan himself, calling a raise + reraise pre, bet + raise post, turn when the ace hits, he's a genius. Oh, and don't even begin to count how many outs I ever had, it would make me projectile varnick.
As you can see, Donald is a close 2nd to people who are too good for me, Bridge is #1, Donald is #2.
And this guy can't fold on the turn, he has top pair! I don't know why I even called the river...out of disgust I guess. I thought to myself "Oh well, he probably has AK, was 50/50 preflop anyway" 9K...too solid. He bets out on the river, as if the thought of me having an ace never entered his head.
I try to think of what I could have done differently but nothing comes to mind where I don't get raped for the same amount of bets [or more] I have to see it preflop because I'm getting over 5-1 on my $$. I flop nothing but nobody bets me out. I turn it and think "What card can really hurt me? Nobody bet the flop, the only bad card for me is a queen, so I'll let someone try to bluff at it and not worry about a 3 outer". Nobody flops trips/two pair there and doesn't bet it because of the insane amount of draws. Yada yada yada...
I'll stop there for now but that's just a shaving off the iceberg upon thousands & thousands of dollars pissed down the pipes.
