I forgot to mention, I was right on the bubble.
If I called and lost I would of been bubble boy
That was my sole reason for folding as my bankroll was spiralling
downward lately. On any other day all my chips would of been in the middle. As they say Chip and chair

Folded Ace-King? It would have lost?

No real surprise. If you read my SNG statistics report, you would know I find that hand a disaster in the making. It looks so nice, but too many times it ends with most of my chips in the other player's stack. I'm batting below 500 with that hand.

Maybe I'm playing it wrong, but in my book, the ace-king combo is like a coiled rattlesnake. If it hits, it is a strong hand. Miss, and you better muck. Unlike other sequential cards, only one side is open and will have you hunting for the inside straight draw, a disaster in the making.
