I Said NH but please by all means don't patronize me by saying GG.. GG is not losing to luck.. Just say NH, TY, I got lucky and I would be on my merry way. GG is being in the money.. not on the bubble with nothing to show for it.

Not sure about the all-in w/88. Maybe if you were one of the 2 short stacks. But 400 chips out of 2nd, maybe not. Depends on your goal. If it's winning only, then OK. But if it's finishing in the money and maybe winning, then this was not the best idea.

I would have called too twizzy - maybe it is the wrong call, but it would be nice to take down Mr All-in - thing is they always see to hit. I'd have called first hand too without a shadow of a doubt (I say call, I would have raised to shut out remaining players).

I Played a perfect game.. One of my best games ever.. Fold like crazy while I watched this one guy limp or call raises with every hand. One guy let him limp in while holding A,Q and then probably wondered why he lost to Q,6. The limper would bet mid pair, bottom pair, et-cetra. People would call him while he would either bet them off the pot or he'd hit 2 pair or something. He tried that tactic with me.. I called him down cause I would wait to get something..More I kept depleting his stack the more the others would increase it.. After about the 3rd hand of doing this to him, he would check to me instead of betting.

Had another who would raise while in the button while I was in the blind(always stealing). I kept folding for awhile, if I did call it would be with something decent. I waited till the flop came and then got him. After that he stopped trying to steal. I even had 2 others call me when I had pocket AA's and the board ragged. I just thought you stupid bastards calling me with junk. Both folded of course on my continuation bet..

All in all I know I did very well.. Wasn't even mad that I lost.. Just got irate cause he said GG..

I love it when I play my game, always do very well when I stick to the game plan. :).. when I do stupid stuff is where it goess pffffft down the toilet.

I probably would have called here also... its a toss up with AK vs 88... when they start going all in every other hand, you gotta call when you get a decent hand, if you ask me.

I really don't like the call. You've seen he did the same with hands as powerful as AK, and you know you're very probably flipping here. Thing is, taking a coinflip here is terrible. SnG strategy is all about bubble play and calling off your whole stack here is very bad. 50% of the time you're out for no money and the other 50% you're only guaranteed to cash, not to win. Wait for a better spot than a flip at this time and attack the smaller stacks blinds. Try to lay low until one more person is out unless you have a very big hand.
