View Full Version : quickest exit ever..........

03-23-2004, 04:15 PM
I've really been trying to work on my two table SnG at P* lately and have had good success over the last couple of months. I usually bide my time in the early rounds and wait for premium hands to jump into the pot, letting the fast action players battle it out. This as far as I can remember is the quickest I've ever been torched. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif Take a look and give me your opinion on how I screwwed it up and what you would have done differently.

I know it's early but the two other players involved have been playing weak Aces and one in particular has showed down K/7 offsuit and K/6 off.

Now that is rough!

Question is how can you get away from Top two pair.

PF I think 80 is a good bet

Flop I don't like the check call. I think I either check raise the pot or bet the pot outright.

Turn I think I push-in rather than just calling then getting into a reraise, reraise, reraise all in, call battle.

All that being said I don't think you will be able to get away from that hand and neither will the guy with two pair and a nut flush draw.

The only way to not get all in would've been to just call it on the turn then fold it when the heart hits on the river. I think that would not have been correct turn play though.

For me I am at least raising the pot on the Flop and pushing on the turn. Either way you still endup losing your stack with the second best hand.

Husker. I don't think it was misplayed on ANY street. I might have pushed after the flop but that would be the only change I can think of. I really don't think that you would have gotten the A /images/graemlins/heart.gif 8 /images/graemlins/heart.gif off his hand in any event but the flop would have been your best shot. You just got caught playing a very strong hand against what ended up being a better one. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif
