      People need to understand, waiting in these type of tournaments is bad ... I'm very happy the way I played ... they didn't have a clue what's my hand here, the way I played it ---

        For early stage, limpfest is the best, only with decent hands, everything else I fold. I do donk calls in early stages to 3-6bets, I don't give them credit either umbup: I did abuse that poor player, but he was really annoying with his defensive bets (he wanted to be, I guess).

          well, seeing as how u raised to 4x preflop and then just check call, i figured u would be committed with that hand the whole way through. can't say as whether i woulda made the call or not, but i know i wouldn't have played AA like u did and thus i would have avoided that situation all together. guess u won the most doing what u did, though.

            u played this hand quite horribly. u definitely needed to raise that preflop. can't really think of why u would just want to limp, especially with two limps in front u and quite a few opps to act behind u. and i also don't like ur shove on the turn. u still have another guy behind u that could have u beat. did u think all of ur hearts were live in this hand? i guess if u read that ur opp's minbets meant weakness, but even then, u should probably just raise between 3.5-5k so that u can play the river safely.

                The possibility of the flush coming, based on what cards you knew, was 9/46. BUT, in hindsight we see that your flush was only 7/46, since opp had 2. In my opinion, going all-in on a flush draw was not an option - you were not getting the odds necessary for that size of bet. Was there a cheaper way of seeing the river and folding when you did not hit?

                  I correctly put the other guy on a flush draw (diamond also), the way he played a hand ... third guy was a mystery to me, and I thought that he had me beat (my mistake).
                  Are you forgeting my top pair also ?
                  I played well, with good push, when needed and got unlucky.
                  I understand, if I took my standard passive way, I would be there little more.
                  I got in to win a hand, not to lose ... it happens.
