This is a live deep stack tournament with 30K starting stacks and 30 minutes levels. Blinds are $1500 and $3000 with a $300 chip ante; my stack is around 60K and the villain has about 52K.
Iím in the SB and the villain is the BB. The pot is raised from the cutoff seat to $7500 (a loose player with a giant stack, 250K). I find
and 3-bet to $18K. The BB then 4-bets all-in for $52K-ish; the cutoff seat folds and I call Ė he shows
and they hold up; I was left with about 8K and busted a few hands later.
In hind-sight I wish I would have just 3-bet all-in, but I didnít. Then he decided to rub salt in the wound and tell me ďI knew you had AK, and itís hasnít been hitting tonight, but pocket nines are Ė thereís been at least two sets of nines at this table recentlyĒ. So my opponent is a total jackass, great; he 4-bet all-in OOP into two stacks that have him covered with pocket nines because nines have been coming out and AK isnít hitting! But I knew we were flipping when I called and I find it funny how they always ďknowĒ I have AK after I show AK.
Anyway, I lost! His play was idiotic but I had to call right? Iím just trying to figure out if I got them in good or not. I donít like calling all-inís with AK but folding pre leaves me a 5M stack with blind levels going up in 5 minutes, so I think this is a standard spot and I just lost; thoughts?
