Could I have played this differently, to get more players into the pot?
I knew I would have a 95% chance of winning this with the bullets, but I can't help wondr if I had flat called pre flop, if the 2 behind me would have called the initial raise- 41, and I just waited for a re-reaise or post flop raise.

Hi waikato08!

AA will NOT win 95% of the time. No clue where that number came from. Against 2 opps, they will only win about 73% of the time.. so I will lose over 1 in every 4 times with them.

One thing that I will NOT do with AA is to flat preflop. I'm always going to be making a raise with them. Slowplaying AA is nothing but trouble. When I get an abnormally large raise, then a short-stack shove, I'm absolutely 3-betting here. A normal 3-bet sizing is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise and since I don't have 3X the previous bet.. I'm shoving.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

I entered a BankRollMob tourney, and was getting quite bullied around at this table, which pushed my stack down to 560 in the very early stages of the game.
In this hand, I picked up pocket 7s, but is a hand I rarely play. But since I was low stacked, I thought I would shove against the bullies and see how I would do, PRAYING for any of the remaining sevens to come out on the board.
Then this amazing flop dealt out, watch.
