Did you just push all in or did you raise, and then he called or reraised? Still a bad suck out!
I am in the exact same boat. I am hoping for a 163 give or take, but if it is in the high 150s I guess Ill be in a tier two school.
The blinds were ridiculous at this point, 1000 SB and 2000 BB, I was BB and had 6000 in chips left after BB, there were 3 guys in front of me. Two of them had like 4000 left and the big stack had like 1000 more than me. I knew that if I only raised, I would be left with barely any chips if the flop did not go my way, so I decided to go all in hoping that they would all fold. Honestly, the guy with the big stack should have folded. He was risking his tourney with AQ when he was guaranteed money if he waited. Unfortunately for me, he called. I should have just showed him my cards and told him to fold. I think if I ever end up that close to a final table again, I am going to do that. Haha, end rant. I hope we both get a 165 and can go get wasted.
Haha, those blinds must have gone fast! I don't blame you, you made the right move. You are absolutely right, he should have folded. There is no reason to call an all in with AQ in that position.
I agree! Come on LSAC, dont let us down!
Actually standard in that spot with < 10 BB but I think poker strat is beyond TLS.
We have to do something to pass the time! I guess I am a little more conservative. I may have called with AQ, but being the chip lead and having the next high stack push might put me off of it. We can all agree it was a suck out though. Thats what makes poker interesting. If AK won most of the time, there would be no stories. That is even more true for AA. God how many times have I lost with AA.
