Joe, Joe, Joe - Still not feeling that 2005 GLORY... Not really sure I did anything wrong in tonights event (Up until the last hand of course)... Played very soild for the first Hr until the break... Had 30 odd BB after the break at 150/300 and feeling pretty good. Early after the break I made what I felt was a pretty disciplined Lay Down...

Action folded to me in the Cut off where I held KK, I 2.5x raise BB gets out of the way SB who has me well covered calls and BB folds... FLOP - Q 3 A rainbow... SB checks I bet half pot and villian check raises me.... Don't like it so I fold the KK...

Are people happy with this play??? perhaps I should have put him to the test and shoved over the top...

  I know where I went wrong here... Blinds 200/400 I am sitting in Hijack and hit AA with 12bb.... Raise Standard 2.5x, in hindsight I should have shoved... All players fold until we hit the BB who has 40+ bb, so understandably he called which is fine... Flop Q Q 3 (2 hearts) villand checks and I 3/4 pot raise, villan calls. The Turn:  7 hearts making the flush.... I don't hold the nut flush villan again checks, I shove my last 6 blinds with villiam calling showing the already made NUT FLUSH with 6A of Hearts and just to rub salt the river comes J hearts...:-?

Did not play this hand well, we are always ahead with AA and I would have been happy getting it in pre-flop, which is what I should have done... My gut tells me he would have called anyway, however it would have been the stronger play from me...

Hopefully go deeper in tomorrow event.... Good Night from Adelaide, Australia....
