Looks more like you are a bad loser. :-)

I raised on the button vs 2 limpers with a 2 gapped connected and suited hand. That raise put the pot at 1275. You then call, rather than put your chips n from the BB. This moved the pot up to 2025.

That other guy then shoved, laying me better than 2 to 1.

You had "just" K8o, and you came along as well...

...and since this wasn't the first time at the table you'd put a good portion of your stack at risk, do you REALLY think I am going to give you credit for a big hand?

:-)

Fact is, I had only a bit over half my chips at risk, I got "caught" by that shover, but since it is an event where JUST 6 people get paid, I gotta accumulate chips...even if that means taking very risky plays. If I am getitng the right price to play those kinds of hands, why do you think I'd fold 'em after raising?

The REAL question is...

What made you think YOUR K8o was "good" after the other guy shoved?

BTW...

Per an equity calc, I had about 36% chance to win, vs about 47% for the KQ. You?

16%!

Great decision whiner!

Let me see if I have the numbers right:

Your stake = $1,300
Your cards = King - eight off suit (Group 7 or 8 hand)
Your pre flop wager = $1,300 (all-in)


How many ways is this wrong? You push a very poor hand all-in against two other players. Your best possible hand is catching kings, but with two wagering heavier, and four players having action, the probabilities are that one, or more kings are already accounted for in their hands. You need a 4-card flush on the board, or a 4-card straight. Again, with so many bidders, the possibility of the king being out there is reasonable.

There is no way the old hedgehog will sugar coat this hand. You were a (explative deleted) fool for making such a (censored) play. If this is your usual style, I predict you will become the most popular player at the cash tables. In fact, I hope to run into at least eight more who play like this next month.

Seriously, I'm wondering what was your logic when you moved all-in pre flop with this hand? Can you explain the reasoning you went through to arrive at that decision? If action at the table prior to this hand hinted at maniac play, I might be tempted to think you had an outside chance with second highest card. But even you should know the creed of all shove monkeys, be sure you have an ace.

Now you noticed I didn't go further than pre flop. In all honesty, your hand ended there. Whatever happened after the all-in is strictly in the hands of the RNG. And the odds never favored you.



My luck is that you did this as a jest and the old hedgehog is taking this too seriously. If so, then I'm the fool. And I can enjoy a laugh at my expense.

I am happy with the way I played
Yes I lost chips
I was only trying to accrue some more just like everyone else does
But would never risk what you did on 69 suited
I would have insta-folded preflop and lived to fight another hand
Maybe thats why I was only playing aces/faces/tens

The reason 69s is wroth a button raise is BECAUSE folks, like you said, tend not to think it will be raised.

I will ask you Spike...

Let's say the KQo only FLATS me, and you come along too. Do you think I'm FOLDING on that 2 club flop anyway? Especially when I had a gut shot straight draw as well?

If he folds, and you shove, I'm calling anyway, with odds.

If he flats, and you flat, I'm not losing anything more without an 8 or 9 out draw, or 2 pair+.

Sometimes you gotta put some "pep in your step" in top heavy pay structure events.

BTW...

At that point, my VPIP, outside the BB, was running only around 18% (12 of 69 flops seen outside the BB). It wasn;t exactly like I was being a "maniac".

Cairn no this is not my usual play
I am usually far more tighter and a lot more aggressive
I was playing in a PSO league game at the same time and looked at my stats
when I was out
played 18 out of 84 hands which is about 22% of total hands played
of which I won 14 out of 18 which is about 75/76% winners
In 2 hours + play
I am really happy with my game
As for being a sore loser JDean , no , life's to short , I'm an Evertonian after all
we are use to losing , plus its only a game lol

Well good.

I'm glad you were only fussed enough to essentially calling me a "donk" in the forum, despite the fact I had pretty deent reasons for doing as I did...



Fact is, a top heavy pay out structure, that early in the event, means I need a LOT of chips to keep going. did I "expect" to have the action I got? No.

Did that action "scare" me? Again, No.

I knew I'd either win a big pot, or soldier on with about 40% of my prior stack.

*shrug*

This is your problem right here spike. It would be advisable to reconsider your contentment with your own decisions, rather than focus energy on JDeans play.

As has been pointed out, with that steep of a payout structure, JD had the math to play that hand--
So, he obviously DID live to fight another hand--
It just happened that THAT was the hand....

this is not about Spikes play its about JDs play....why is JDs play defended?...two player have entered the pot and JD raises 5xBB with JUNK even though theres a couple of players left to act.
what possible hands did JD put the other players on ?.....maybe he was being a Bully or after fold equity ?....I dont know JD or Spike but I have colour coded JD so I have him down as a good player so like Spike I would have been very surprised at JDs play.......If JD was near the top of the leaderboard and I knocked him out by raising 5xBB with junk and sucked out a straight on the river I dont think my play would have been defended by anyone....I do however disagree with the title of this thread!!!
