He's thinking why the %*$# did I limp UTG with this hand? There's no way I'm gonna fold AQ!!!

You're lucky you have tenure...if you were a newb, you'd be in the middle of an all out flame fest for this post.

nh.

Spot on analysis I think...but you have to add the thought: "my trap worked - I've got him now!"

I know what you mean. There's obviously no value in studying the play of one of the best SNGers out there.

Let's have more, "Is my 200% ROI after 40 games sustainable" posts.

Oh, to SFB's original question, he's probably some rich guy with $215 burning a hole in his pocket who thought his AQ was still good.

He's thinking "This damn, super aggressive, 2+2'er thinks he can bluff me off this pot... take this, biatch."

Apologies if my sarcasm detector is malfunctioning, but all the posts you see with "curtains" in the title are part of an ongoing project by dozens of forum members to improve their play. Curtains, a successful 215'er and one of the most respected opinions on this board, has been generous enough to share his HH's with dozens of members to review and post hands they are curious about. It is an extremely educational and quite valuable project that Curtains was kind enough to volunteer for, although I'm sure it's a mutually beneficial.

Check it out, I'm learning lots.

And now I see 45suited has beaten me to this post.



Skipper, what were the exact stacks? Ever c/r all in here ?

I see these calls on the flop all the time at the 11s. I didn't think players at the 215s would be doing it as well. I truly think that they see your flop push as a blatant steal attempt and they honesty believe that their A hi is good.

Saw a guy today min raise a 150 chip lead bet on a flop of K/8/3, 2 clubs. Lead bettor went all-in. Min raise idiot called. Lead bettor was in the BB in an unraised pot and had k/8. Min raise idiot had AJ off and nothing but a backdoor flush draw and 1 overcard. He hit runner runner clubs.
