    aa 22 1010 qq and the winner is

    When you think of such hands, it's handy to plug these numbers into an odds calculator:

    TT 15%
    QQ 17%
    AA 54%
    22 13%

    While 22 should never have been in the hand, it's interesting to note that while AA is 54% to win, he's also 46% to lose. This is why you should raise and isolate with your premiums at every chance. Looking at the hand, the only player to make the mistake was 22 and although he flopped a set, he still didn't win.

    I've seen hands like this before, I had one in a live game where I shoved AKs under the gun and was called by AA, KK, QQ and 99 (who won). Unlucky but hands like this do happen, you were just unlucky to be on the receiving end.

        I think TT made a mistake by effectively shoving 47bbs I think he could have raised normal planning to call the short stack shoves.

          In this example You didn't do anything wrong at all just a bit unlucky both to run into AA and to have the two players you had in bad shape hit their sets.

          I think the important thing is to not get upset when things don't go your way. If you get emotional you will just play bad.
