    Here is the answer i got from hand analysis...

    xx vs. xy where y is a rank below x: xx (AA in this case) is usually better than 90% to win preflop, which is the best kind of odds you'll ever find in Hold'em.

      I'm not saying this person is a good poker player, but let's at least look at it from their perspective.

      They raised to 5BB in a poor position, and got a call. Then the BB pushes all in for not even twice what is in the pot. A good player is thinking it's a steal attempt, (but i must say, i don't know how the table was being played to that point, so should you have been considered a likely thief?).

      You also had a chance to accept the the raise control the pot and see what on earth the flop is like. Then you could make a much better decision on whether the AA would still be a top hand. With the 2 queens, I would have had some doubt on my Aces. Unfortunately, he did end up completely sucking out on you.

        Haha gotta love how this guy is tryna find anyway to say it was bad play from me.

        I had less than 20BB that player was playing a wide range of hands, i hardly played a pot up untill now except from KK which i was all in against the same player who had pocket 9's, my shove got the other player in the hand out the way and i am hardly gonna try and steal when i have a raiser and a caller behind me when as i said hardly seen a flop.

        When i see he has ace rag i am 93% to win this pot! But of course pokerstars would reward 7% chance of winning a pot.

          I'm just saying you could have played it differently and NOT BEEN busted out. He did suck out, but seeing QQ on the flop could have saved you from busting out. It's a points based tourny league. The absolute goal is to get maximum points. As in NOT RISK BUSTING OUT EARLY! weird concept.
