if he had called your re-raise to 900 and then went all in on the flop would you have folded?

i doubt it

yeah you should be thrilled to death if anybody wants to get it all in pre when you hold pocket ones. You simply got 20%ed.

the only way to avoid that beat is to fold, and with rockets you can't fold...so there was nothing wrong with how you played it....that's poker, sometimes you can hold the best cards and play right and still lose...hang in there and keep grinding...

don't like how either of yous played the hand pre flop

they should bet 3xbb , you did re-raise them 3x what they bet, but i would make it 1,350 chips, which is 3x what opponent should have bet.

However, since that good % of your stack, an on most flops your opponent going to do a c-bet on flop, may as well go all in , instead off the re-raise to 900.

end of day, no matter how you played it, doubt they going fold pocket queens against you when on big blind.
