"$1 $2 Cash Game Live

By: quadkin3 @ 14:35 (EST) / 453 / Comment ( 0 )
A special hand sticks out in my head. Took a trip to Tunica this weekend. Where did I find myself? Sitting at a $1 $2 NL Holdem must move table. Bought in for only $100. After bout 2 hours of playing I was forced to move to another table. ( Too bad ) My stack now at $638. I waited for big blind to get to me. Ok in Tunica there is a thing called the Mississippi stadle.( meaning anyone at the table can put the stadle on, not just the player under the gun) So the stadle was on. Every one calls the $4.(pot around $45) Action gets to me I look down at AdAh. 1st thought was to muck B/C so many people in hand its like 10 agaisnt 1, and i have little or no chance to improve. So I decide to test the water at my new Table. I com in with a raise to $150. 2 people call. (my heart jumps up in my throat pot $495)Flop KQ10 all diamonds. I sit and think awhile ( hummm I have pair over board, nut flush draw and a Royal flush draw and a str8 draw so I have alot of outs and probablt even te best of it right now) I push allin for $488. Fold, and a call. ( my heart jumped from my throat str8 out my body I thought I was beat).Wow he just has AKs. well cant lose can only win or split. turn comes 3c and the river Jd, Royal Flush for the home team. My stack now at $1471. $1371 profit in a little over 2hours not bad, time to leave. But no I decide to stay i wanted to play some more. Went bout 1hour1/2 lost around $45. Then the hand of all hands. Im on the button. Under gun raises to $15, middle position reraises to $50, SB reraises to $200,BB reraises that allin for $700. WOW what is going on here. I almost muck without even looking. ( Thinking in my head even with Aces do I want to risk $700 with nothing invested and remember I'm only at a $1 $2 table.) I take a glance I look at QQ into the muck they go faster than 2 rabbits well you can figure it out. he got 1 caller KK vs AA. Wow perfect laydown. I knew one had AA. Well here comes the flop Q A Q. My head drops in disapointment. Quad Qs on flop. and a huge pot. Turn 10 river A NO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Bad Beat jackpot. Well I tell what I folded Preflop And the table get Quite just for a second looking at what was on the board and the pocket AA other guy was holding, and it seemed all at once everyone says Damn. and the one that held the AA asked How do i possiblely lay down QQ preflop. Well I guess he didnt remeber how much he bet preflop. How Could Possibly call $700 preflop with just a pair of Qs with little or no chance to improve? The ending stroy is that I made the wrong laydown. But the begging story I believe I made the correct laydown,and would do it everytime in that situation. But lost out on alot of money. If you have the time leave some opinions on this hand and what you would have done, and if you think I made right decision not knowing what the outcome would be?
