I know people have been waiting for Part II. Part I can be found here.

I left out what i did. If you called preflop you would be first to lead out, what would you do? How are you feeling about your hand sense you see that they shoved? Anything else?

Part 1 is an obvious push/fold preflop, so you shoudn't need to make this decision. That said, as played (I'm assuming you called preflop), just open-push the flop because the pot is huge and there's nothing on the board that scares you.

I agree with Dorkus its fold or push preflop (and a pretty tough choice though I'm folding).

On the flop you have to push and all you've achieved with the stop and go is giving hands you beat (mid-low pairs, AK etc) the opportunity to fold (not that they necessarily will of course).

Given yourself a chance to win a big pot or lose a huge one here.

Agree with Dorkus as well. Push or fold pre-flop, obv push here, and be v happy if you take it down uncontested.

What does everyone put them on based on the flop play? random junk?

They could have absolutely anything from AA to A4 to 72o including 99. The information was preflop (see part 1)

At this point they are pretty much justified calling with whatever they've got too.

KKKID clearly has a real hand if he's calling the all-in. Maybe Tens or Jacks. I think you're beating him though. Buckeye probably has AA as previously discussed, but there's a chance he is making a play.

Are you going to wrap this up, Misch? :)

I'd have been very tempted to push all in on this flop, but I can understand checking given the pre-flop betting, but now this is a very tough call.

I could go either way here. Pushing is a gamble but there's still a good chance you have the best hand.

On the other hand if I was confident in my ability to outplay people at this level I'd now be folding. You're going to get to see both hands regardless so I think I'd be folding my Q's, taking notes, and saving my chips for a better chance. Fold & live to fight another day - at this stage in the tourny the info could be as useful as the chips.

It's a start at creating a weak image too which I find can be very useful the next time you do get a good hand ;-)
