re: Poker & $1 12k Qualifer-What a Donkfest!
I know tight play is the way to go, but with AA and I see a guy who I know could be going all the way with QJ push my 3 bet (as happened to OP) do i want to lay down? I personally will not be able to do that. My Qs, maybe; AK, maybe, these depend on the usual things, position, players to follow, reads etc. Ks I doubt it (even tho they will go all in with Ax as well).
So tight is the way to play, but you cant be laying down premiums every time you get pushed, cause you will be pushed so often in these. And it can be a good way to build early big stacks, if you choose your spots (and dont suk out lol) Bus as I said, it depends. If I raise UTG with AK, get a re raise followed by an all in early game, I will let em eat each others lunch, but with AA, its a fight.
Having said that, bolda, that happens, it suks but take the punch and roll back up.
