ok you'll have to bare with me on this one as i'm doing it from memory.

Comments on all streets would be nice, cheers.

1st = $3,000
2nd = $1,200
3rd = $800

player 1 has 3000
player 2 has 8500
hero has 3500

hero = button and has AA BB = 150/300

Player 1 is very tight and has managed to fold his way into 3rd place

Player 2 has been quite aggressive with his big stack but has slowed down since it became 3 handed.


Button calls 300, player 1 folds, player 2 checks

Pot = 750 Flop = 862r

player 2 bets 300 hero calls 300

Pot = 1350 Turn = 5 making 2 spades

player 2 bets 300 hero raises to 900 player 1 calls

Pot = 3150 River = j not a spade

Player 2 pushes all-in hero calls.

I think many people would play this differently i would be interested in everyone's opinions

cheers guys

i've been burned too many times trying to slowplay AA, i at least minraise preflop... to about 650-700. If u pick up just the blinds, keep min raising and gettin blinds.

You preety much butchered this hand on every single street, how about raise your button to 800 or 900 and if they fold, show them aces, then just steal their blinds from the button all your want.

If you're going to just call, then on the turn raise it to 1000 to go and then move in on the turn

I usually raise preflop, but ok, you are slowplaying. That said, I reraise that flop bet to about 1000.
