My thoughts

Spoiler alert!


Ok, so I’m trying to post hands I think I played poorly in order to learn better, as I think learning to kill off poor plays that I win is more informative than finding losses which I played well. This I think is just a downright bad hand, and it’s only off by one turn but wow it seems quite bad in hindsight.

Pre-flop, I think might be a little on the aggressive side, and probably bad in the long run. I’m out of position and the guy has TT+ or AK for sure based on the bet. I don’t have much info, but he has me beat from the get go. Post-flop could be way worse for me, but I think I took a stab when I shouldn’t have, and probably wanted to stupidly defend a good preflop hand and not look like a wimp by backing out. Then the all in was an instance of sunk cost stupidity. I should have check folded, I think.

Spoiler alert!


BTN shows Q<font color=’black‘>♠</font> Q<font color=’red‘>♥</font> (Two Pair, Queens and Fours)
(Pre 57%, Flop 71%, Turn 5%)
Hero shows A<font color=’black‘>♠</font> K<font color=’red‘>♦</font> (Two Pair, Kings and Fours)
(Pre 43%, Flop 29%, Turn 95%)
Hero wins 185 BB

3 BB was deducted from the pot for the jackpot.
