      He probably expected you to fold since you were on the bubble.
      Thats very unlucky.

                If it's a satellite, this is an easy fold. If it's a regular pay structure tourney, this is an easy call imo.

                  ONE REASON I DON'T LIKE THE REPLAYER IS YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE PLAYING
                  BUT HERE IF I'M WILLING TO PUT ALL MY CHIPS ON THIS HAND ON THE BUBBLE THEN I SHOVE FIRST IF HE HAD I'M SURE HE WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE POT
                  BUT WHEN HE CALLS HERE I THINK THE BEST HE COULD EXPECT IS A COIN FLIP
                  AND I DON'T HAVE ANY LUCK WITH AK BUT THAT'S JUST ME

                    Hi M Don't worry about the 'still learning' bit! Seasoned poker pros that are playing for years are still learning. That's why we are all here on PSO. AK suited might seem like a very attractive holding and it is a powerful opening hand. It is definitely NOT a hand worth putting your entire chip stack at risk for pre flop. If the villain turns over a pocket pair of A's your crushed but as the play showed any pair beats you in this spot. It was an incredibly bad play on the villain's behalf and in the long term he'll lose out big time with plays like this. Again as already said make a note on him. Next time if your holding a premium made hand like a large pocket pair and he makes a play like that shove it in his face. I'd be 80% sure you'll win in those spots unless he gets lucky again and hits something better. I also get the feeling by your quote that you've seen the villain make loose plays already in the game and that his chip stack is taking large swings. Sounds to me he's a loose aggressive player or LAG type. There are good LAG players (Gus Hansen) and bad ones. Judging by his pre flop shove here he's one of the bad ones. Just take it on the chin, it's one of those things that happen. I've met you on the tables and your play is quite good. Some of your play is very creative. Good luck on the felt! umbup:

                        since it's a satellite, with 5 stacks lower than you, it's a muck for me (I'd even consider mucking AA in that situation). The one and only goal at that point, is to NOT get ko'd.

                        If it's a regular pay schedule, call all day long.

                          this is a 45 man normal speed 25 cent game i guess.

                          i call this every time and at the same time i know i do not yet have a pair. so some times i'm busting out and sometimes i'm busting them.

                            One question about the in and outs or the famous odds ect ive seen more than my share also of bad plats like that. Is this a run of bad luck or lack of knowledge, ive seen very good players thrownoff there games because of stupidities like that... so a fold on all ins should be the right thing...ive found that i might win 1 out of 5 all-ins with 1 or 2 hands im confuse by times and mad lol still learning thx )

                              odds and outs ect.

                              there is 13 cards of each suit in a deck ok, when you check your outs you still have to consider the other 8 players sitting at your table also..so less cards in the deck but you dont know what they have so how can youfugure out your outs this way im confused lol.
