Opinions please... Hand I played
1/2 NL Live...
Is this a bad play? Full table, very loose. Probably averaging 5 or 6 people to the flop. Almost always limping with very few preflop raises. I'm in the SB. There are two limpers in early position. One guy (Player A) raises it to $7 in middle position. There are 3 callers behind him. It gets to me and I look down at Q10 off suit. I want to say here that I hate when people get married to some crap hand (i.e. "I always play 4 6 of spades!"), but I must admit that Q10 has a special place in my heart (as I said recently on a thread here). So my first question is, if you're playing this hand, do you call here?
My second question... Same hand... I called, and there was one more caller after me (roughly $42 in pot). Flop comes down 10 10 9, with 2 clubs. I check, and it gets checked around to a guy in middle position (sitting to the left of Player A). He (Player B) bets $15. Two guys behind him call (pot roughly $87). I go all in for total $55 ($15 call & $40 raise). It gets folded around to the guy sitting to the left Player B (both Players B & A have folded). (Here comes the question!) If you're sitting there (as Player C) with pocket aces, and you've got me who just went all in with that board, who has been sitting quietly for about an hour, showing absolutely no aggression, calling a few big blinds, folding to raises, hadn't played a pot, would you call?
I hope this makes sense.
Basically, I'm trying to justify to myself that this was not a bad preflop call on my part, knowing how loose this table was, knowing it was only costing me $6 more to see a flop, with my favorite hand for crying out loud! (which, I'll admit is a horrible reason to call a raise) I also want to know if people could get away from pocket aces in that situation (as I think this guy should have been able to do here).
And most of all, I'd like to know if you did call with your aces, and you didn't improve your hand, would you spend the next 20 minutes berating me like this idiot did last night?
Any other comments are welcome.
