Click on the "show" button.
If I have AK or AA and that player is not the BB, yes. I will make a call so others acting after this person will not know If I intend to fold or not. If they shove to isolate with a marginal hand, I got them as well. If it is more than the 3 of us, I can fold. I would not take AK or AA into a 4 way pot unless I could very well afford it. These two hands get weaker the more in there with you. 3 is risky enough. That had to be what she was thinking, right? Plus, since the dealer made her take back the out of turn bet, it did not commit her to it! So a shove might have seen her just fold instead...
If the shove is from MP there is still hijack/cutoff/button/SB/BB yet to react to that shove. If you shove you tell the whole table you have AA or AK. So, they fold. If you call, you tell the good
players that, not the bad
; they might not realize it and try to isolate, then you got em both!
Actually, to throw those good players off, I might have min raised! That would make them think maybe I am either a weak player or did not realize the all in out of turn. Then they just might call the shove/go all in over her to isolate thinking I might be weak or not paying attention
. If she would have acted like she didn't know it was her turn, this could have added that deception.
Ha! Wouldn't they be surprised?!?
