Player 1, under gun +1, limps in with 45BB behind.

Player 2 goes all in with <5BB.

My hand AJ, 40BB behind, calls all in.

All fold back to Player 1 and he calls all in.

Flop A9J, 3 suits and Player 1 checks.

I shove, he calls and shows A5 with no flush draw.

Post hand review with Odds Calulator shows I am 98.99% ahead to his .31% behind with a small fraction possiblity of a tie.

I lose the hand to runner-runner 5's. My tournament is over.
