In what is one of the fastest fifty50's I have played, I am happy to announce that I have made some good in game decisions (3 to be exact)! The first was laying down AK to a re-raise and re-re-raise.
I often do this because I have a hard time calling two All In's with out a made hand. In this case it pays off big because high card wouldn't gotten me diddly squat.

The Second was getting all my chips in with cowboys a short time later against two "high card hopers" and took them to the bank!






This tourney ended with in 28 minutes, 27 hands dealt, three hands played by me. One fold (shown), one All In (shown), and one split pot.

Pay Outs
1st $11.26
2nd $10.67
3rd $10.23 Beerhoe
4th $ 8.97
5th $8.87



Just wanted to post something positive for a change after doing a lot of posting in the Bad Beat thread.

wish i played against people like you who had the knowledge to toss AK. i cant remember how many times there have been raises reraises then I shove with a big pocket pair only to get called by some noob who thinks his AK is as good as AA preflop and of course they get lucky and will hit.

9 times out of 10 if I have raises and reraises and shoves infront of me i will fold my big slick. probably only time i will call them if the players are super loose/donk or i have a monster chip stack

but glad it paid off, if it was me with the queens against the 8s and AK im sure the AK would hit a pair cause the poker gods don't seem to love me as much.

ive played heads up a few days ago i have A8 suited other guy really aggressive so he comes in with a raise i reraise he reraise and i shove and he still calls with only QK. of course he rivered a straight
