Here is a question for debate. Looking now, I think I overplayed them, considering this person was gonna call regardless and technically had a 40% chance to outdraw me. However, what would you do in this situation. Let me throw a few tidbits out. Jst511 is a very aggressive player at least from my observations in the early rounds. Tends to overplay top pair. Did not put him on pocket jacks only flat calling my initial raise given his style. Player had doubled up against a real bad player early who played top pair with a bad kicker vs. his top pair with a better kicker.

Given the players style, my overpair, his pot sized bet, would you have re-raised all in?


Note: I had five consecutive sit and go cashes up to this point. The streak ended with this play.
Time to start a new one.

I dont see any alternative play. I dont think this takes much analysis - you played fine, opponent played fine, you were probably a moderate favourite post flop but he caught one of his cards and beat you.

Given his past aggressive play I would have re-raised him too

maybe not all-in tho

you had the odds,,, he got lucky

I would be out also...i guess

I don't like your preflop raise here. I would have led out with at least a 4-5 BB bet. Although villain would have still called. I think you needed to show more strength.

The all-in was played well. You always need to make them pay to draw.

Standard play...had villain missed his draw and had you won the pot, you'd never have made this thread, right?

Ignore results, they are insignificant.
