View Full Version : Unbelieveable 3rd hand of a SNG

Party 100+9 SNG. All players are still relatively close to their starting point.

Let me preface it by saying that I played the hand horrible. I was a little tired, and was tilting a bit from a previous tourney where I lost heads-up.

I get A /images/graemlins/heart.gif K /images/graemlins/diamond.gif in late position.

UTG limps, UTG+1 limps, MP raises to 100, I call (first mistake, I should have re-raised or folded), the SB calls, the BB calls, and then UTG wakes up and pushes all-in. UTG+1 folds, and MP re-raises all-in (he had UTG covered slightly), I think for a second and call (horrible mistake, at this point I should have put someone on AA, but for some reason I just didn't believe that was what I was up against). Then much to my shock the SB calls all-in too.

So we have 4 players all-in pre-flop on the 3rd hand.

The board comes up (2 /images/graemlins/heart.gif K /images/graemlins/spade.gif T /images/graemlins/diamond.gif 8 /images/graemlins/club.gif Q /images/graemlins/club.gif).

I thought it was a pretty good board, with me making TPTK and no flush draws out. Here's the hands:

UTG: A /images/graemlins/club.gif K /images/graemlins/heart.gif
MP: J /images/graemlins/club.gif J /images/graemlins/diamond.gif
Me: A /images/graemlins/heart.gif K /images/graemlins/diamond.gif
SB: A /images/graemlins/diamond.gif J /images/graemlins/heart.gif

The SB wins with his straight, which had a 3.7% of winning before the flop.

First off, the limp re-raise from UTG was good, I don't usually see it with AKo, but he probably played it well. MP played it well too, by raising and then pushing in with his pair. I played it god awful, and need to recognize when my tilt takes over the thinking, although my thinking was that these players could be on smaller aces and I had a real nice chance. The only person who played it worse was the winner. How could he call 700 chips on AJo being the 4th one in the pot??

Comments on the hand?
