Hey all,

I am just trying to improve my play, and you gusy are really all I have for advice... so here goes...

Did I jsut get unlucky that a higher ace was out there?

Would anything worse call me?

Did I have any choice??

your push was fine, though i haven't looked at icm numbers or anything. it should be automatic i believe.

you were unlucky getting a bigger hand behind you, plain and simple.

now that you have heard that though, the 2nd time you post this everyone will gang up on you for posting a bad beat/unluck thread.

This would have been a really, really bad fold had you done that.

In other words, POOOSH! NOW!

same exact thing happend to me yesterday, I put it into SNGPT and It said it was a easy push.

07-21-2005, 07:29 PM
I know,

I didnt meant to make this a bad beat post, its not.

Just that almsot every time I get a pushing hand some1 has better. So I was wondering if it was correct or not.

Yes it's correct and I do it every time in this situation.
