    My inner nitdonk was telling me to fold before the flop on this one . If i call I cant fold on the flop with this hand so I inly have 2 options : all in or fold . I wish I had trusted my instincts .

    Having said that to fold AA here just merely to survive and hope you get some +points when we are at a point when the points are pretty small , and my stack size dictates I can't fold .

    **moved to more appropriate forum JWK24** Hi frasierbeams! This is an instant ship EVERY SINGLE TIME, even in a league game. If I'm going out of one early, it's going to be where I get the chips in preflop with KK or AA. The problem isn't this hand.... what I'd be looking at is why am I this short of chips this early? There's no way I've blinded down and lost 1/3 of my stack by this level, so there had to be plays where chips were lost... that's where I'd be looking for chip leaks. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
