Love for the Hole Cards

Ok, I'm all in!

Dear all,

Loved the recent tourney's line. Wish all of you great games and best of luck ahead.

Was in and out of tourney's, climbing the stakes ladder in SNG. (Both up and down, of course!)

And I observe one thing, my luck does not run too well doing All-in's preflop. The heat's too much for me to take! And based on my observations so far, approx. 9 out of 10 preflop all-in's weren't in my favour.

But I somehow come to realise that I prefer anything else then the action to call the preflop all-in. But a couple of hole cards are of cause given the exception. Pretty small range I would say.

Just a quick thought, on how would it be possible to avoid (of cause one option is to fold?!) but how else best to handle such situations?

Cheers and may the odds be with you at the tables.
