      This is how he called :

      This is the very early stages of a micro-mtt.
      He faces unknowns .
      He has a monster hand .
      He faces two shoves.
      He calls, and is very happy to do it.

      ...and happens to be up against the only 2 combination of cards that have him beat, but manages to find a queen.


      He can absolutely NOT put other villains on the only two better hands that have him beat there when he faces unknowns in a micro. Especially so early where you'll have so many bingo-players and very unskilled people that managed to satelite in cheap .

        It's really simple, he moved the mouse cursor to the call button and clicked it.
        No seriously he could thought that your range was a medium pair, AQ+ and the other guy's JJ+ AK, so he thought he was flipping versus you two.
        Totally justified call.

          Hi AJ2007,

          I would agree with the first two posters. With 30BBs we aren't normally looking to fold QQ. Your shove wouldn't look like Aces to me, looks more like a hand that doesn't want action. Initial raiser calls but maybe he's thinking the same thing about your shove and could still show up with AK and TT+ here and maybe worse I would think depending on the player.

          Main thing is don't worry about what other people are doing. Focus on your own decisions. Here you got your money in good in a cooler for the other players.

          But you should be thinking was there a better way to extract more value from these players if they didn't have such strong hands.

          Very unlucky result.
