This is a discussion on Opinions about this hand within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; in this hand I am AAKING-RC on the flop the Set is completed, the player on my left does all in and I pay, I
I think maybe you could have gotten away from it depending on if the player on left was considered loose they very much might had the str8 already or at least a combo str8 and flush draw. Set over set is a losing situation,rare but they happen, it depends on how much you will lose not if you will lose or win. Though you still would have like a 35% full house draw.... the way it played out you probably just had to go with the hand. Best of luck to you in your next game.
Nice hand for top set, but in a 3 way allin he must have felt that he was beat before the cards were flipped. He also could have been up against some big draws. All in all top set got real lucky with that flop to be up against a smaller set & 2 pair.
In your situation, I probably would end up losing the stack. The only thing I would recommend is watch closely if there are draws and watch if your opponent is countering with raises and all-in, thats a sign of strength.
As well don't put your money in with trips unless there are no straight and flush possibilities.
I usually put my money in when there are straight or flush possibilities. The odds are in your favor. Thats the only combination of cards he could of had to be ahead of you. The other guy called with 2 pair.
Each hand in the game can be the last depending on how many blinds you lose. It is necessary to evaluate the hand of the opponent and then the loss of chips can be reduced and accordingly lose and departure from the tournament. but no one cancelled the cooler.
Standard cooler. And nothing you can do. This stuff happens. I play a lot of PLO and I have started to be very cautious with middle or bottom sets.
In NLH however, other than that imagine you had KK and villain AA and the flop comes AKJ.....you call the all-in and if you get beat, well, next time you'll win.
In any case I would have been more afraid of straight/flush draws. But when villain shoves you pretty much have to call. I agree with previous posters, if you start folding here, you will be bluffed out of every single board with draws in the future.
Put simply, there is no getting away from that hand...very few if any players fold there - so chalk it up to experience..there is nothing really to analyse or advise..its a call/push all the way and probably twice on a sunday...
thanks to all, I really felt somewhat frustrated on that occasion but that's unpredictable poker, thanks for your good comments. Concluding if you are in the same situation bet everything is difficult but most of the time you will win
Look that is the flop you wanted even though you lost. The straight a bigger set like his and a flush with the board not pairing are the only things that would beat you. You just were unlucky that he hit a bigger set when player to your left went all in i would assume he had a bigger pair and pushed due to the flush showing 2 heart flop and he had no heart. You did nothing wrong in my opinion most would call if you question calls like that you will lose a lot of hands you won.
