  • Learning to fold AA...

    Poker Stars $1.32+$0.18 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t200/t400 Blinds + t25 - 4 players - View hand 2325598

    SB: t4915 M = 7.02
    Hero (BB): t3250 M = 4.64
    CO: t4415 M = 6.31
    BTN: t920 M = 1.31

    Pre Flop: (t700) Hero is BB with AdQs
    2 folds, SB raises to t4890 all in, Hero calls t2825 all in

    Flop: (t6550) 7c3c7d (2 players - 2 are all in)

    Turn: (t6550) 5s(2 players - 2 are all in)

    River: (t6550) 8h(2 players - 2 are all in)

    Final Pot: t6550
    SB shows Kh8d (two pair, Eights and Sevens)
    Hero shows AdQs (a pair of Sevens)
    SB wins t6550

    Immediately, I realized that I should have even folded AA there with the Button being so short, but can I ever really become that disciplined?
    Then this morning, this happened...

    Not AA yet, but working my way up there... I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks...
