    *** moved to more appropriate forum JWK24***


    AA against the opps ranges should have about 60% equity here against 3 opps. With everyone equal chips, AA has invested about 25% equity into it. It's a really unlucky result, but a +35% EV play that I know that I'd make every time.

      If you don't wanna take a chance to quadruple up first hand with AA. You probably shouldn't play the 10c turbos

      I do feel your pain. From the brink of something special 1st hand to busto

        I agree, I'm shoving this every time. If you can't shove when you're the favorite, then you're in the wrong game. Most times you'll win and have a great stack to build on, but you sometimes get the suckout.

          i agree you should of folded pre flop i 100 percent would fold with 3 all ins infront of me.

            You're 58% to win against those exact hands and you're calling 1,500 into a 4,500 pot. I think this is the right decision. I think I call here everytime with my eyes closed. Plus, it's a turbo. I don't play turbos at all but if I'm right it should make this decision even easier. Something like an MTT where the blinds increase slowly I might consider folding so early but chances are later on in a turbo you would find yourself in this sort of a situation with much morse than AA. So good play, bad luck..
            Anyone have any comments on this?
