I hate putting my tournament life at risk on a bluff, and so do most other people including your opponent, and I am sure that no matter what he held, he knew that too and that is what made him through away his cards, now, whether he had an ace or not is questionable, that would be really nitty play that I don't think 99% of players (including pros) are going to make. I would image he had a big pocket pair from tens up to kings, but I seriously doubt he had an ace. How did you end up doing and how did he end up?
Yea I think your right, I'm not sure if he could have folded an ace in that spot but probably kings or queens.
I ended up getting down to the last 13 when I woke up with pocket queens, there were two flat callers before me so I raised 3x. The Big blind then pushed all in, then one of the flat callers re raised all in putting me all in.
I thought for a few moments about folding as I thought he had played the hand like aces that wanted to get action but when I asked him if he had aces something didn't seem right.
So with me having a 90k stack and the BB having a stack of 50k I decided to call as I was confident that if I was ahead and my hand held I would have a stack of 230k with only 570k left between the last 10 players.
I called and showed my queens with the BB showing pockets 9s and the flat caller showing AK. It was a race. The flop came 10,6,8 the turn brought a 7 giving the BB a straight and the river didn't fail to disappoint by bringing a king to only eliminate me.
Looking back I think I could have let the hand go and kept my 90k stack but I wasn't dissapointed losing to a flip.
