re: Poker & final table, 370 man tourney
Congratz on the final table! What'cha gonna do! Sometimes the cards fall for ya and against ya. I was in a simular situation once, not a final table but mid stage tournament and this happened.
I have A/A and bet 4x the BB and get 2 callers.
The flop is A/J/2, I bet the pot, 2nd guy doubles it and the third guy go's all-in.I call, the 2nd guy re-raises all-in ... I call.
I have A/A for a set of Aces, 2nd guy has J/J for a set of Jacks and the 3rd guy has 2/2 for a set of ducks.
My Aces held up and I won a huge pot on that one, Sweet!
On the other hand I was once in a live tournament average stacked about mid stage. Sitting in the cut off with 8/9 suited. Everyone is limping in, there's so much in the pot that it's worth calling the 600 blind from the cut off in case the flop is favorable. The player on the button behind me raises to 1200, and no one folds ... everyone calls ... sweet ok I'll call too it's a 10k pot.
The flop is 7/6/10 rainbow W00t! I flopped a straight. 1st player bets 5k 2nd player goes all-in ...long story short only about 2 players fold out of 9 we all went all-in!
1st player has A/A another with K/K, another with 10/10 for a set of 10's I show my 8/9 and my straight and the button shows 7/7 for his set of 7's.
The turn comes an A to make player 1's set of Aces, who ever wins this pot will be the chip leader in the tournament.
A 7 hits the river to make the button players quad 7's and that's all she wrote for me in that tournament. LOL that was a wild ride, it don't only happen online this was a live tournament. Tis poker
