re: Poker & What makes the guy drop AA on an allinn pre flop and still show ?!
He must have clicked the wrong button by mistake. It is the only reason, anything other reason is just not acceptable. I did that two days ago. A pop up appears over my game and just as I clicked to close it the game pop up and I clicked call to an all in. Dam I lost 2/3 of my stack when I actually wanted to fold. I tilted and went out a few hands later.
A lot depends on what information we are missing from the screenshot.
How many players are left in the tournament?
Is he close to getting into the money?
Was he worried that Alaerico would put him all in?
Under some very limited circumstances, I too would fold AA pre-flop. Maybe this was one of them.
a total mistake, it was a sit and go, I understand the point in a folded satellite but still being in bubble you have to go ,,, I see many comments and I agree but we are forgetting that it was a sit and go of only .25 dollars analyzing it there is no reason to fold, no matter more details and circumstances
I can only make a couple of assumptions as to why someone would fold Aces there. One is that it must have been a misclick. The other is that the money bubble was approaching and this player would rather fold their way to a min cash than to take advantage of pocket rockets and try to triple up. A lot of players say they would fold in similar situations to insure an ITM finish. It is very possible that the player meant to fold but might not have meant to fold and show. Whether showing the Aces was intentional or not, it was a huge mistake. That player just broadcast the fact that they are playing with scared money and will fold pretty much any hand to make the money and therefore can easily be taken advantage of.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with all of you. All of you are locked in here with ME!
Good morning everyone, maybe I folded by mistake, it could be that I was playing a lot of screens.
I already played AA in the preflop, I was playing a freeroll at pokerstars, I don't remember my exact position, but I was in the top 20 in the hyper and I was winning a ticket to play a $ 11.00 Mtt, but of course, to play AA.
It was not a friendly satellite. It was a $ 0.25 45 player sit & go. I really don't believe he would have missed the click because he still showed his cards. I don't know what went through his head.
Probably he was trying to show that he was a pro. Probably he just finished some of course where he was taught that you should read your opponent and be able to say fold and bla bla bla...
But still. The only reason you can say fold already written here - if you are in prizes in satellite and there is no sense to risk at all.
