heh heh

ya gotta love a poker hand where you can't help but win.

Sometimes you just like your chances. Villain goes all in on me with possible made straight or made flush. I've got pocket aces with the nut flush draw on the turn. I like my chances and make the insta-call.

I wind!

'cept that rubber tree had other plans. lol

Hi HoaryGill,

I assume this was a hyper turbo with the stack sizes?

The limper only has 13BBs so in a hyperturbo (or any format for that matter) I don't think you ever want to fold AA at any stage with 13 BBs.

I like your preflop bet size. However the bet on the flop is way too small.

The pot is 245 and villan only has 295 behind. If you didn't have the Ah, I would just say shove the flop. With the A of hearts you could bet a little smaller and try and entice action since there's so few bad cards to come.

45 chips though into a pot of 245 is way too small. You want to bet something that leaves villan with just under half pot left in he's stack which he'll gladly put in on the turn or right now.

105 or 110 might be good sizes. Commits the player. If they call they will have 185 left behind and they'll be 465 in the pot. very difficult to let go with any piece of it.


Quad Bracelet Winner
