  • how would you play this hand?

    Hi there,

    again a hand that kicked me out of a tournament (Splash satelite)
    Your opinions please.

    I'm in !^th position, 75 players left, 46 wil have a seat in the Splash tournament.
    My stack = 255.000
    I'm in late position
    BB = 6000
    a few limpers before me, I limp with K5

    The flop shows 5-A-K

    I bet 15000
    all fold, except the button who raises (probably has AA with low kicker)
    Since I have 2 pair, I decide to go all in
    He is a very big stack (375.000) and calls me (which I expected!)
    Unfortunately, he gets a pair of deuces on the turn+river and I'm out
    in 69th position (no seat for me!)

    Should I have played this more carefully?
    I certainly could have, but I figured that, the chances of him getting a
    second pair are so small..........(8% for his kicker)
    After all, chances are that, since he had AQ, If I hadn't pressured him, he would have done it with me!

    I'd like to know how other people would have played this hand :
    defensively, or agressively (like me)

    Your opinions please!
    Thank you

      top 20 in chips..?. 42ish BB deep? 29 to drop for your ticket? thats a fold pre all day every day! You're not tryin' to win this thing, just be in the top 46. Even if you get there w/ 1 chip left... no brainer fold..imo

        It happens, K5 can't win every time.

        100% fold preflop, satellite or not (ESPECIALLY in a satellite in your position). Next best option is raise.

        fold >>> raise > call preflop

          You have to play satelites differently than a normal MTT.

          If you are sitting in 6th(Im guessing) than you should be tanking the clock and folding to the ticket.

            I think that !^ equates to 16th ( both caps to those #'s
