      Ha! allin call with Q3s almost as bad.

      Was he just shoving allin every hand??

      I played a 45 man sng once where there was one player on my table shoving allin EVERY single hand.. Literally 100% of the time. He got lucky the first couple of times and quadrupled his stack, then he just kept doing it. Most of the time everyone folded to him, and occasionally people called, but he still won now and again. Since his stack was so big, and generally only the small stacks were calling him, it took quite a few hands before he eventually busted out...

      Both highly amusing to watch, but highly frustrating to be playing on the same table

              Your opinion is going to be disputed thoroughly here. Post your proof, and then we'll back you up.

              I can "predict" cards as well. When I "know" that I'm beat, I fold. That's why my AA isn't going to be all-in pre unless it has to be. Hold 'em IS NOT a two card game. AA only gets you so far.

              If you keep with your beliefs, you are going to lose just about every game. Sorry, your beliefs are wrong.

              It's time for you to re-analyze your play and get over the paranoia if you want a chance to win.

              Please ask around for the many different ways to track your hands. When you have a decent sample, show us what you have. Might even* surprise yourself.

                If you can't let this go then you may as well pack it in now. Sorry to be that blunt but it's just the truth. Reason being is if you feel like you're always getting beat when you hold premium hands (guarantee that over any decent sample size you aren't...) then you're going to play them wrong and bleed value. That will get you into the death spiral pattern of winning small pots with your premium hands and losing big ones.

                Sent you a PM as to your query in another section. Hope you find it helpful.

                  I'm lost. Are we supposed to be criticising the huge stack for trying to bully his opponents into folding at what would appear to be something approaching the bubble?

                  No info about prior behaviour so I'll assume nothing extraordinary.

                  The action has gone call, call, raise, call. Every reason to believe he would only get one caller (the only previous raiser). May well have had good reason to believe he would get a fold there too. If the raiser's range has been reasonably wide, then just how far behind is his 73? Probably going in as an underdog into a very fat pot.

                  It didn't work out like that, but then how much damage could his opponents do to his stack anyway?

                  Unless we're supposed to be laughing at something else or is this to prove that Stars is rigged?

                  Another thing, all of you who sit there folding until you hit QQ+ are the easier opponents to play. Ever wonder why you often get folded to when you make your move with the premium cards (which still are never better than 90% favourite). One of the reasons it is "frustrating" to play against shove monkeys is because that isn't how it is done on TV or the books we read. They are actually easy and very profitable to play against if you take the long term view.

                    shove monkeys will loosen up after the first shove.
                    yesterday ive played a 50fifty with a guy that had 0 VPIP in 43 hands, the 44th hand he shoved all-in and everybody folded. he problaby hit AA or KK, 3 hand later he tried to pull off the same trick, but someone called and he showed AJs and lost.

                      There's a lot of validity to that statement. You have a uber-tight player at your table and he suddenly makes a move, you hesitate. Sometimes it might be good chasing a hand just to throw off those tracking your play. Not saying you go to the river with trash, but if you never play a suited connector hand, it might be worthwhile doing it. If it's a cheap showdown, players see your poor cards and might then call that big hand later. Consider it long-term strategy.

                        Okay so first of all it is a freeroll and he has a huge stack and 7 3 off is likely going to be live! The Q3 call is worse IMO.

                        Gidee Up!
