re: Poker & do u think this player made the right call against me
Was that a typo? You said $400 GTD. Did you mean $300? If so, I was railing that tourney. If this was the tourney I am thinking of, I stepped out for a moment and missed that particular hand, so I can't be 100% sure, but the guy who had the chip lead for a while in that tourney was one of those players that really had no business still being in at that point. He was one of those guys that plays bad and gets lucky. He made some horrible calls earlier in that tourney. I saw him get them all-in pre with A-2 off against A-A and hit trip 2s. I saw him call a pre-flop all-in with Q-4 suited and win with Q high straight against J-J and K-K. After that they made it easy for him. Here is a guy demonstrating a complete lack of poker skill, and they were just shoveling chips over to him. He would open shove from early position and some idiot would call him with 4s. The point is that you weren't getting him off A-K, pre or post, unless you had him outchipped, and probably not even then. I don't think you could have done anything different except to fold while you were still holding the best hand. Again, if I am correct, this was at the final table of that tourney and you finished either 6th or 8th. I'm thinking 6th. I've seen you play. In fact, I have your table open right now. I see you're in the money again. Anyway, don't sweat that shit. I don't see a way that you could have played it that would have changed the outcome. He just caught a card on you.
