|Last day of the month

Damn, it was hard.|
I started by donking off about 100 with a very weird hand.
Utg suddenly raised to 18 and i had AK on the button.
That overbet looked strange, but i wanted to see the flop instead of reraising right now, cause i was new to the table (should have just pitched the hand), flop was ragged and villain bet about really small.
I thought he was afraid of my call and missed the flop, so i reraised him pretty hard and he called after thinking for a while.
He donk bet the turn again - 16 into 100 pot.WTF?
By that time i just called, river bricked, and he bet 16 again...I was just curious wtf he could have there?
Called, and he showed QQ.
Then on another table i limped UTG with KK.
Someone minraised and button called, i reraised to 14 (too small, i know, should have made it 20 OOP)...Flop was K9Q with 2 clubs...Long story short, button had JT and i didn't fill up.
That miniraising dude turned out to be very tricky LAG, who entered every hand (96vpip) and raised about half of them.
He was really good postflop though, agressive, semibluffing, and knew when to laydown.
I just couldn't nail him and franckly he pwned me pretty hard.
I had AQs, raised it up, he called on the button.
Flop came A34 2 spades, i bet about pot, he called.
Turn is a 5, not a spade.
I check, he bets pot right away.
I almost folded, but then i thought, if he has A2 (or just any 2), why would he do it?
So, i decided, he was on a spade draw and called.
That was before i got reads on him, i just saw him constantly raising,overbetting and entering every pot, so i thought he was as typical donkey.
Turn was another brick, and i decided i am gonna let him bluff again.
I check, he went all-in immediately, i called and he had A2...Pwned.
So, i was down 600$ right away.
Strangely, i almost didn't tilt.
Just went to wash my face, regrouped and started grinding it up.
I couldn't get that guy, cause he was really good at putting people on hands and folded if i had the goods.
I bluffed him several times because of it, but he probably bluffed me too a lot of times.
I managed to get it all back and to finish a session even up about 150 or so, but damn it, it was hard.
My pfr has dropped since i moved up, i've been more taggish lately, cause the stakes are still new to me, but that is probably gonna change soon.
Meanwhile, this is my last day of the month, i won't play again in august, so this marks the end of my best month in poker so far - almost 6k netto without any bonuses (just the rb at the beginning).
On different note, i started a good discussion about Combodraws on 2+2, i think it worth a read.
Still havent' decided what to do here...
Today i had 8dTd and flop had 7d9d...i was OOP vs that LAG and decided just to call all the way to try and catch my draw (i especially hoped for the straight outs), but i bricked as usual...
He probably didn't have much and i should have check-raised him on the flop.
It would suck to be stacked by him again though....
