I am trying to tell myself it's OK because I got my money in right in early position I was trying to narrow it down or take the pot down right there. Was I wrong? 3 freakin callers. WOW. That sucked!

Normally it would be better to raise less than all-in with aces, in a real game (this was a $3 donkfest) the 10s should have folded to a decent size reraise which says "hey I've got aces or kings". The huge overbet shove looks like you are trying to push everyone off the pot and don';t want any callers, which might cause pocket 10's or ace King to think they are best. You raises $1250 into a less than $200 pot. You actually would have had a better chance of getting a fold with a bet of 400-500 here. It says I have a real hand but I want action. The ace king prob would have still called which you want. Pocket 10s might (probably) have called anyway but you really don;'t want to push everyone out here, just try to narrow the field a little.


Of course after that flop you would have still lost all your chips to the 10's but there's really nothing you can do.

yeah I know I played it bad. Tanks for your feedback. I had taken some bad ones just before this and was really scared with my aces and wanted to take it down there. You're right though, it would have said " I have a monster better with less of a bet ". I was on tilt and screwed up. I was just apalled to see 4 people in that pot.

Well the important thing is to learn and try not to repeat "mistakes" , although seriously considering the buy-in I doubt if there is anything you could have done to win the hand. I was just trying to suggest the best way that might have, or a better way to play it in the future. Good luck in future games and try not to go on tilt. Remember the cards have no memory.
