Was just playing a freeroll satellite on PS, the high roller club daily warm up.
sat in about 17th out of 21 remaining from a field of 2036.
I notice one player is playing very loose and decide im gonna call his all in when i get a decent hand.
Get dealt AQo, he goes all in, i call, he turns A6s.
Long story short i bust out in 21st place to a pair of sixes.
I feel like i made the right move because i had him dominated but ended up busting out and because its a satelite no 21st place prize and my morning grind ended up being a waste of time thanks to some lucky fish.
When did the "money" start? Just the top 1-3 places?
If so, you absolutely did the right thing. They guy is throwing chips around trying to scare everyone else out of pots. You're way ahead of his shove range with AQo and will often (as you did) have him dominated. But even in this situation you're only approximately a 2-1 favourite.
If the "money" starts at 18, then it's a completely different story. All the prizes are the same in a satelite, so you're not trying to win the whole thing, just win a seat. At this point I would just be looking to steal the blinds whenever I get a good spot and let others bust out around me.
