this was on the final table of one of the Premier league matches. 4 handed, and I was worried about the guy in the bushes, when he folds, I liked my spot, Suggestions on where I went wrong or how I could have played it different if it all. Although in retrospect I think I got outplayed by a great button limp at this stage... well here it is:

Were they limping a lot? Then i push it pref. You are short here, you need to act now. As played - ship it OTF.

Ok so the money should have gotten in either way, if not sooner than I put it in.. So it was just bad luck then? What I was more worried about is if I had a chance to get off the hand at anypoint. Thanks

You don't have maneuvering place here at all, and KT is pretty decent hand to stick it in with

raise or shove preflop. Whatever's left, if any, needs to be shoved on the flop.

You played this hand way, way too passively. Yes, the opp had a monster, but you also let the other player draw at beating you without having to pay for drawing.

ahh i think i see now, so 4 handed there's no chance of me getting away from KT? It is essentially a cooler? I realize I made the mistake of not pushing pre or worste case jamming it all in on the flop.

I appreciate the insight JWK.

(for me) you're only on roughly 8 bigs so at this point (before this really) you should be in jam/fold mode,as your pretty short, but taking a "free" look w/ K10 is reasonable, but as soon as that K hits the flop, you for sure need to shove it to either leverage what little fold equity you have and pick up the pot right there, or charge the max for anyone that wants to come along. Nice finish btw.
