OK decent amount of preflop raising I thought I could narrow down his hands to A's,K',Q's, or Big Slick when he called me preflop..... I really had no intention of this flop ever coming out but once it did, I am thinking about how best to break this guy. I can't think of a single question I could ask myself to save me. Relatively decent sized pot and a monster hand... I really wish I understood why this crap happens to me at Stars so much as well.....

he did have you beat the whole way, and it's not like JJ is that awful of a hand, especially for a $2 prefolp raise. it would be one thing if he had 7-8 or something..... or was this not another one of your bad beat threads?

Ok poker masters did I do this right, I have top PP I raise 3xBB gets called then I figa ok he may have AK KK KQ QQ the third being what I really thought. I flop a set so I bet 255 or sumting close to that hes all-in figa he hit maybe Qs if he holdin QQ or AQ for 2 pr. but really not scared of anything now I start rethinkin what he may have but nothing scared me EXCEPT THE STRAIGHT DRAW and lo and behold I call and sure enough he draws his straight, I know this happens and I was cool with it and after thinkin nothing really I could do with this one. Come hell or high water I ain't layind down trip A's.

Now do you lay this down? I think not, but maybe some of you might have a different take on it.

Jamile, there's no way in hell anyone could possibly consider laying this down - you're a HUGE favourite to any possible combination of cards your opponent holds. He must have been gambling you didn't have an Ace and would lay down (maybe he thought you would be slowplaying if you did have an Ace, and your bet meant that you didn't?). You got all the chips in the middle with a monster hand, and couldn't have played it any better - at least he had the decency to apologise!
I had a dreadful weekend cards wise (results weren't too bad, but actual cards were total rubbish for 2 straight days). Tried a big MTT on Pokerstars last night - 2nd hand get KK - opponent already all-in so I call - he's got AK, and hits straight on river! Made a bit in a ring game though, started getting some hands again!

A minimum raise on pocket Jacks? Who is this player? I never saw those pocket jacks coming. I though he had the flush. Tough break!

No, you played it right. The other player happened to get the one card he needed. You just can't fold trip Aces becuase you think the other player is going to make the straight.

Now do you lay this down? I think not, but maybe some of you might have a different take on it.

Regarding the pre-flop play: You played right in theory, but let me share something I learned the other day about pre-flop raising. Early $5 SnG; blinds 5&10; I get QQ mid position & raise to 100 (10x BB). SB calls with 77 & hits a set. Since 7 was the high card on the flop & I wouldn't have put her on a low pair, I go all-in & lose.

What I learned is that some players don't think in relation to the size of the blind, especially early while the blinds are small. They think "100 (or 105) is not much. I'll try to hit the flop." Probably a raise of 250 or more would have scared away these chasers & you and I might have been a little richer now.

(BTW, his all-in on the flop was a donk play. You were ahead & made the correct call. He was semi-bluffing an 11-to-1 shot & got lucky.)

So you'd rather win 45 chips than have a chance to win 1,470 when a 1/13 favourite? You don't want to discourage action with AA, you want to isolate an opponent and strip him completely - Jamile did this perfectly with his bets, just caught a bad beat.

Points well taken there Mrstick and what Rob is saying is exactly my thoughts, all-in and maybe take small pot but being that he went all in post flop I'd be screwed either way because me hitting 3 A's I still bet 2 something and he immediately went all in.


Oh and Rob wife 24/7 damn I know that scene oh to well ditto for my lady

Not a bad beat technically.... Only question is wether or not I could or even should have gotten away from the hand. I don't know if I could after the cards came out sure I overplayed it preflop but hitting a set against someone who likely has an overpair or flush draw. Just never considered him to have pocket jacks... Thought this was gonna be a big winner. btw Most of the hands I post are not "venting" most times I am looking for a way I could have avoided what happened!

I disagree Mr Sticker (sorry) - I think the 100 bet was perfect to a) get some action and b) scare off the compulsive chasers. 3 x BB is industry standard, your 8 x BB raise is too much!

(Intended as good-hearted debate and NOT "Diablo VS Dennis". You're a cool dude, Rob but...)

Are we seeing the same hand history? Poor Jamile lost his entire stack. There's nothing "perfect" about that.

I agree an 8x BB bet is too much. But I think it is safest early in a SnG when the blinds are low and people are willing to risk 100 from their 1500 stack so they can chase. To top it off, you certainly don't want multiple callers with a bet so low. Besides, this guy still might have called 250 with KJ and it would have been the same situation.

I'll admit that there is no 100% solution. As illustrated previously, I even tried 10x BB and still failed.

Totally irrelivent in my opinion - if you make the right bet, and get the odds in your favour, then the actual outcome is immaterial - he made a good play and lost to a bad beat.

Completely agree with rob.
MrSticker, when you analyze a hand you have to analyze every move but without being results-oriented. You have to see if you made the correct betting and you achieved what you wanted. Look at this:

If you analyze that, then you can´t say that it wasn´t the perfect play. Jamile, holding the nuts, made the other guy went all in. That´s all. Streske18 could have ANY hand and he still was going to be the underdog.
According to you MrSticker, Streske18 made the perfect play because he won?

That´s the reason of why i like when Paulsson doesn´t show the results when he post a hand in the hand analysis section, because he prevents us of being results-oriented.
