AA suited

8 handed, no reads, 50/100 blinds
I'm mp w/1250 and everyone after me has ~1250 chips
Folded to me. I have AJs and raise to 250.
Folded to CO who goes all in. Everyone else folds.

I knew it was either going to be a coin flip, or I'm dominated. So why in the hell did i call?!

Because you suck at life /images/graemlins/wink.gif

Honestly, I hate being in positions iike this. If I have like 12xBB and I have a hand like KQos or AT/AJs in MP I will many times just fold if there are no short stacks behind me. My reasoning is this, if I raise and somebody pushes I am not going to call off my entire stack when I feel I can find a better spot. However if there are several short stacks I will raise since there is a good chance they will be looking to get involved with hands that I am a substantial favorite over.

You probably weren't thinking.

It's a fold, but not a terribly easy one.

Once, after I had been playing SNGs for 8 straight hours, I picked up JJ UTG 6-handed with 25/50 blinds and I folded.

I actually misclicked and folded the nut flush in a ring game a while back in a HUGE pot...I had to stop playing poker for a couple days after that:)

This is a very easy fold. $50+5 you are going to be a dog atleast 70% of the time. Unless you consider yourself a poor player who needs to rely on shoving it allin preflop and praying, fold here and wait for a better opportunity.

These 50+5's sure are soft though.

Folded AA last time I played because at first glance I thought it was A4. I wish poker had an undo button.

It's not an easy fold by any means; you're getting 1.6:1 on it. If you had 1000 chips you'd probably have to call it. Still a fold, though.
