Isn't it sweet when you hit a big hand right before the break? I just love it when it goes down like that; conversely, it sure Sux when you're on the losing end of it right there..............{ ( lol am currently involved in a hand, same table, same people, holding KK, just a couple of hands later and will post results ) }........ Have you ever been involved in a hand where you end up allin, you lose the hand and get a msg saying you finished where ever, and in the background you see a message saying that the tournament is on break and will resume in 5.....lol it REALLY sux when that happens.

Soooo, I offer you the following hand that I wanted to share with you, as this hand occurred at the break, and this is how I played it; how would you play it? I will offer the information that I have on this player, which that he is an extreme Donk, had been ranked in the 10K and higher, and had been involving himself ( as he always does ) in a lot of hands, stealing & getting caught raising light on showdown, but catching out from behind. This is a satty with 6 seats, there were some 50 or so remaining, on a guess. ( Please note that what you don't see is that I am sitting there thinking about my play here based on my information and the situation for 12 seconds plus about 36 off of my timer before making my play. )

That is your info, and the break is coming up, this guy has your chipstack capped, now what would you do?

Above, I want to see a flop with my hand vs. that raise and that player. I do not want a rogue Ace hitting that flop, and killing my continuation in the hand. It's too much of my stack to try out flopping an Ace. I am willing to flop with a large stack raiser here for some blinds, but not that many, not there.


And Then, after the break, as I was composing this post just to find out what others would do on the above, some couple/few hands later, this hand occurred, .

bogweed1964 folds - where have i seen that before?

Seeing the first hand in isolation I like most would have probably have said "get your chips in" but you had a read on the villain and the likelyhood of him playing A rag and made your decision based on that. Well played Sin, very good read on the "villain" and you got it in second time around, nice hand.

Heres where the villain finally bit the bullet, I post it as my read fed off previous hands including the second one you posted, coin flip hand I guess but got lucky - also posted because its one of the few occasions where it doesn't say bogweed1964 folds !!!

Its interesting how the perspective on a hand changes when you have first hand knowledge of the player involved and also to see the effect and influence on how subsequent hands are played by others as a result.

Congrats to you too Sin, to play or cash that is now the question

Am in an Excellent situation, in which I won a ticket 2 days ago, which said ticket is dedicated to playing the tourney, no matter what, so, when I approached the final table, I unregistered that ticket for the T$, so that when I won this ticket there wouldn't be any foul ups. So yes, I am definitely playing, had I won this ticket or not.

And tyvm. The Best.

The Sinman.

I would have folded, AQ, 1 hand before break, where poker stars is known to break good hands with weak 1s, and there is still the possibility of him holding a good hand(like he ended up having, just not as good as yours,)AA, KK, AK. Poker Stars missed throwing the bad beat your way,and for that, I'll give you a congrats on the hand and way to get the donk off the table.
