I was playing a $1/$2 limit holdem at Fulltilt and this newbie showed up and raised every pot, he initially won $75 then lost that and his $200 in a span of less than 2 hrs, we were playing 6 handed Limit holdem.

One pot I played with him, he was on the button and raised with Q9offsuit, I have JTsuited on the BB and called, SB folded, board was Q9A8A, he bet the flop, I called, I checked raised him on the turn and he re-raised and I re-raised, on the river I expected him to just call me because I could have an A, a Q with a better kicker or a straight but he raised me again. I only called him and expected a fullhouse but only saw 2 pairs.

He then proceeded to tell everybody that he's just starting to play poker.
