This table has been pretty passive. Not a lot of PFR or reraises, just a lot of limping in. I had been playing a pretty aggressive game; raising maybe 3 or 4 hands in and out of position every orbit without a lot of trouble from other players.

Now, on this hand...am I missing something here or was this just another very odd play?

ETA: After rereading the hand history, Im wondering...Could this guy be Full Tilt Poker's "Pottripper"? That is one hell of a call. He's obviously a super-user and/or this game was rigged.*

Full Tilt Poker Game #4333903592: $6 + $0.50 Sit & Go (Turbo) (32874442), Table 1 - 30/60 - No Limit Hold'em - 8:08:24 ET - 2007/11/29
Seat 1: tsvperkele (1,915)
Seat 2: DrOwNiNgNeMo (1,060)
Seat 4: Philthy (3,105)
Seat 6: smtl (3,230)
Seat 7: ermajore (640)
Seat 8: the_szar (1,535)
Seat 9: skyyvodka1 (2,015)
skyyvodka1 posts the small blind of 30
tsvperkele posts the big blind of 60
The button is in seat #8
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Philthy [Ac Qh]
DrOwNiNgNeMo folds
Philthy raises to 180
[Continuing my aggressive play. This is my standard raise PF (3x BB) Im not committing a lot early on, so I can fold if I need to.]
smtl folds
ermajore folds
the_szar calls 180
[hasnt played a lot of hands. Im not sure what they could have.]
skyyvodka1 folds
tsvperkele calls 120
[Dont know either. I think they might be calling on just odds alone.]
*** FLOP *** [Td 9d Tc]
tsvperkele checks
Philthy bets 300
[A small C bet on a semi scary board. I'll slow it down if I get called and fold if I get raised.]
the_szar raises to 600
[I hate min. raises. Im probably beat here. My opponent couldve called with J10, Q10, K10, JQ, 78, maybe 99, etc. Possible they are min raising with a flush draw. I have to see what the other player does.]
tsvperkele raises to 1,735, and is all in
[This was an instant push. Im now possitive Im beat. I def. think a 10 is here.]
Philthy folds
[Easy Fold]
the_szar calls 755, and is all in
[Im expecting to see a drawing hand from this guy. This was an instant call, also.]
tsvperkele shows [2d Ad]
[Not that surprising. I was expecting a 10, though.]
the_szar shows [Ah Kh]
[Wow. Now, I am really suprised by this. This is the absolute last hand I would ever put this player on. Total 'WTF' face when I saw this.]
Uncalled bet of 380 returned to tsvperkele
*** TURN *** [Td 9d Tc] [4h]
*** RIVER *** [Td 9d Tc 4h] [8h]
tsvperkele shows a pair of Tens
the_szar shows a pair of Tens
the_szar wins the pot (3,580) with a pair of Tens
The blinds are now 40/80

Clearly, your flop standard raise was seen as a c-bet. You had pushed them both to the breaking point, and they broke. Once on tilt, anything can and usually does happen.

And I thought I would only see this kind of early tournament play at a Freeroll table... (push with AK and a missed flop)

lol. It was the 3rd level of blinds and its a turbo, so thats about 1 - 1.5 orbits every 3 minutes. So, thats maybe 15 or so hands I raised
PF prior to this hand. Not that many.

LOL. Actually, I do raise a lot of hands PF. I think Mr. Sticker said I raise about 30% of hand PF when he was watching me multitable (4) $2 SNGs...

So, maybe they did crack.

This is pretty standard turbo $6 play on FTP. I see those min-raises all the times and I also see people jam with trash. Lucky for you they played it this way and you were able to save your chips.
