  • Aces Cracked, the saga continues...

    Check out this hand. Let me know what you think, this time I just shoved it all in preflop. This was from the 1pm Game of your life 10FPP today. All I can say is, thank god there was a side pot. Anyone is welcome to convince me how much a donk I am and that those players made solid calls.

    God bless their pointy little heads.

      I didnt know these where running already.

      Sucks but the shortstack is shipping any suited cards,Ace rag, and connected cards in this spot.
      K5 suited is just a bad play and donks get me with those kinds of hands all the time if I dont note them for that kind of hand.

        I'm wondering why you would put in 1400+ pre-flop to win 125? Wouldnt a raise be a better move? Maybe gives you a chance to push after the flop and take the pot. I can't see the short stack re-raising with his hand pre-flop otherwise he'd have pushed initially. It seems you wanted a caller or 2 to get maximum value with your aces, got them and ended up being a little unlucky

        I don't know coz I'm learning, just a couple of thoughts really.

        Good luck

          Tried just raising on my earlier thread in a PSO, I was told I should just ship it with Aces, so I decided to try it. I normally do just 3x raise it. Both approaches ended with a loss.

            Yes I saw the other thread, in that situation you should've shoved because a min raise looks very much like a weak attempt to steal and you don't leverage your fold equity. Here you are putting in everthing to win very few chips.

            I don't think it's as simple as one or the other, it depends on the situation.

            But you have to take what I say with a very big pinch of salt because I'm just learning myself. I could be completely wrong lol

            Good luck.
