Pocket Rockets were good Bet Wasn't !

By: Heiffer1 @ 09:19 (EDT) / 3 / Comment ( 2 )

Well I took me all month to reach another final table. I was the short stack as a result of betting poor starting hands when all of a sudden I was dealt pocket rockets 200, chips my opponents with 4 and 6 hundred thousand and without thinking I raised 60,000., my opponent had A5 offsuit and the flop comes A55 he goes all in and I follow like water entering the bath drain. Needless to say I beleive I would have been better to try and steel the blinds with an opening bet of $100,000. or all in?
