Mikey,

Even after losing this hand, I was still in the Top 10-15 in chips.

AJo is an auto-call under those circumstances.

I corrected your post.

I'm still kinda mixed on it. Before I was folding, but considering the stack sizes (I thought it crippled him), I think it is a close decision. It is still probably a huge overbet (blind sizes weren't mentioned) and a definite gamble in a risk/reward sense. I wouldn't make it "auto" anything.

In what world is this a close decision?

Moreover, you've just had some of the best posters on these fora tell you that it's an easy call. Learn from them.

I agree that if just one hand like this can break your heart that you should not play in the WSOP.

Chip-leader with 60 players left does NOT a guaranteed finish in the top 20 make.


You took a bad-beat...I don't see what the big deal is.

I can't understand why one would shy away from tournaments forever just because they played well and it didn't work out.

You need to play a lot more tournaments to help desensitise yourself.

I was using a little hyperbole with the "broken heart" stuff. Don't read too much into it.

I think only the 1st place (or maybe top 2) places paid out in this tournament. For anybody still on the fence about calling with AJo, that should push you onto the call side.

Bill,

I hope all you guys and girls play this year. But, do me a favor and knock out Fossilman, Sklansky, and Harrington before they have a chance to get to my table.

One last thing, I noticed you look a lot different than your picture here.

Mark
