was this a mistake on my part?
1st, being in mid position how can you say you isolated the all in when you have followers who could call also? Then what are your pot odds
? At that point only 2:1--whinds up 3:1--and A-Qo IS a bit risky one on one unless UTG pushed on a hope of stealing ---was he playing tight or loose before pushing?? A little more info would help--if UTG was playing tight, then chances are hes got TPTK, if loose then I'd say you did the right thing--but it's all moot as BB had ya both--BUT w/5K, yeh, you did what I'd done-wheather it's RIGHT or not is up for debate.
