Most likely I'd fold to a PF raise that early in the tournament.

Re: Wasting Aces...

You didn't waste your Aces.

You took down a pot of t140, 7xBB, to increase your stack 13%.

That's fine ... much better than losing your whole stack. Believe me, every day I see donks limping...

You want to play the $1,500 WSOP circuit event to bust your cherry before playing "an event or two" in the Borgata Winter Open event?

Re: what would you do in this situation?

What did UTG do?

Assuming he folded I'd probably flat call t1,600 into the t3,800 pot, making the pot t5,800. Small enough to get away from if the flop is in-opportune and he pushes.

20% of the...

Re: Your Saw Flop%

Hmmm, I truly believe the percentage should change over the course of a MTT.

At the early levels when the stacks are deep or close to deep I force myself to see flop with a wide range of hands,...

Re: PP of 10\'s on $22 on Stars - advice appreciated

Hmmm, this is not really my home forum, but let me take a few shots:

1) It's poor style to post everybody's handles except for you own. Use the hand converter instead.

2) As already said, don't...

Re: Early in a MTT. how do i play this

You don't play the hand past the flop.

You're not getting the right price, especially because 4 of your "outs" gives you the idiot end of the str8, and might easily cost you your stack. You need...

Re: Bottom Set facing Lots of Resistance

MP1 has almost all of his stack in the pot. I wouldn't be surprised to see KQ a good part of the time, but even if you could pin him exclusively on JT you're getting amble odds to call. Easy hand.
