Hi guys!
I wanted some opinion on this hand. It's a 45-man $0.25

Cuz in my head I was like "Ok, I'm way ahead of the limper's range, that was probably some suited connector, and since I'm getting short and haven't got good hands in a while, the players will respect my shove"

And acctually I was not worried with the limper at all, but only with the BB or the SB waking up with a hand.

Seriously, I mean, what kinda of moron limps with AJ when there's 3 people to act behind ? The chances of his AJ getting sucked out by some crap hand was huge, so by not raising he's made a mistake.
Sometimes I think that our knowledge and thoughtful analysis on poker is our worst enemy (especially against players that do a lot of mistakes). Anyways, even though I'm kinda pissed with players making the most trivial mistakes and get lucky, I'm gonna still hold into the good playing.

Hi fp_boss77

I have been a victim of this many times in the past. Your 15 bb shove with KQo over a late position limp is perfect. Playing the hand any other way would be questionable.

The guy that limp called with AJo is most likely to be a recreational/new player and therefore doesn't know what he's doing.

Unlucky but keep at it, gl in the rest of your games!
