I just noticed I was in early position

btw I know it was only 1/3rd of my stack, i opened up after that hand and went out in the 2 hands after. back to playing tight.

JJ, isolated and only 557 more to call... I'll make that call every single time.

Any TAG player will make that call. It's not being loose, it's playing good poker.

From this game, I'd be looking at the next couple of hand... where you gave the rest of your chips away, as this hand was definitely NOT one you misplayed.
