Hi joker,

With a 14bb stack and AA my only decision is how many fist pumps are appropriate before getting my chips in. I think 3 is a fine number.

The only thing I can point to for you to look at is the first statement about not liking 2 all ins in front of you. This is a dream situation that you should be loving, a very good chance to go from a short stack to a very nice stack and help set up a potential deep run.

Bear in mind that against these exact hands, you're going to triple up 93% of the time. It's brutal when a hand with very little equity sucks out like this, but in the long run, you'll be gaining a lot of chips by calling here.
If you get your money in as a big favourite, you played the hand correctly, so try not to feel bad about this rare suck out.
As Dave says, you should be absolutely loving it when you have AA and there is action in front of you, because there's no way that you are ever going to be an underdog.

Maybe he didn't like it because it was ONLY 2 all-ins instead of 3?


Dude this is a "poker-porn" hand,that's how sexy it is. We need to chip up,we have rockets and TWO players are signing up to donate. And then they step on some of each others outs both having AK. Doesn't get a whole lot better than this,just very unlucky for you here.

Lang's analysis is a bit off though---to me this spot calls for 3 fist pumps AND the Pee Wee Herman "Tequila" dance (can substitute the pony dance from Happy Gilmore...).
