how many bullets do you fire?
In a SnG last night I was delt AK, 5 limpers before me & I raise 4xBB ( 80 chips ). All but 2 fold. The flop comes 6,10,5 I fire my 1st bullet..a raise of 100, both call. The turn is an 8, I fire another bullet this time a raise of 300 ( pot size bet ) again they both call! Ack. The river is a 3, I give up the hand & check, they both check. 1st guy shows A,J other guy shows 2,2, I lose.
I've noticed in SnG's people will many times call big bets ( like half their stack worth) down to the river then fold to another big bet on the river. Should I have shot my last bullet & gone all in there? I think the biggest leak in my game is getting big cards like AK & losing tons of chips when someone will call with some garbage like 4,7 suited & catch a 7 & call my raises all the way down assuming ( correctly ) that I am betting overcards.
I play a tight aggressive game & would have bet that the same if I had any high pocket pair, I just dont get how people can hang in there with cards like 2,2 etc.
