That really burst my bubble for the day.
Sometimes, I just hate this game. I really wish that there was a rule that when someone was all-in, instead of seeing the rest of the cards, you could split the pot exactly based on the percentages of you winning it. For example, if two people were all-in PF with AA v. KK, you could take 15/17th of the pot if you held AA, and 2/17th of the pot if you had KK. Wouldn't that make poker interesting, and so much more mentally stabilizing.

Just a random thought.

He still has about 10% chance of drawing out on you after the flop, it has to happen now and then.

Either way you could easily have avoided this by folding pre-flop /images/graemlins/wink.gif

I knew someone would come out and advocate folding PF here.

Quite frankly, I couldn't disagree more; and bare in mind that I consider myself to be a fairly tight player.

In the SNG I was in, it wasn't the all-in fest that you usually see at Party. In fact, I had tabbed a few people at the table to be quite solid and tight-aggressive. They were all sitting behind me in this hand, and KQs was a VERY good spot to take a shot at the blinds (though stealing 15/30 blinds is nothing). It also gives me a table image with the rocks if I show down a KQs against a fool in this situation, which I would want.

Hindsight is 20/20, but I would hardly fault myself for playing the hand the way I did. When I get popped back, the raise is so small that I have to see if I can flop a flush draw, a queen, or even two pair. And really, I put my entire stack at stake as a 90% favorite. Doesn't really get much better.

Sorry to be so picky, but I really hate it when people try to critize a play like that when it actually set my self up in a perfect situation.

It was like the time a few months ago when someone said I shouldn't have slowplayed my set of sevens against a player who showed PF aggression and an uncoordinated board. Sure, I could have pushed all-in on the flop with my set, but there was no way to know that he would spike an K to make his own set on the turn.
