Just raised in mid position with AJoff

3 callers to pot.

flop comes down AJd5h

I shove - get insta called by a Russian with Q10off - you know what happens next.

Turn brings a 9s, then they hit the straight on the river with 8h.

The only factor I can see influencing them is the fact they had my chip stack covered 3:1.

If they had seen the turn I can see a case for possibly calling, just seems like a horrible shove to me with 8 outs, no flush draw.

It's only the freeroll but not a good play at all - they are just over 20% chance of winning, 1 in 5 hands and an instacall lol.

Crazy Russian bastards.

Well, seems like you didn´t played many of these freerolls during the past.
You will see such calls in nearly every tourney.
Don´t know if they are playing that bad or if they are the opinion of wasting time if they don´t double or triple up early.

if you've just started playing the BRM leaderboard tourneys, you will notice more and more of those fishy fishy calls.

Yeah i hear you - this is probably the 6th time i've played, early rounds are the worst, all-ins everywhere with trash.

I just thought that particular hand was awful to try and get 1400 chips with.

Even in rebuy tourneys with $5buy-ins people shove in the first 10 minutes with all kinds of junk.

some people are of the mind that you can push all in with anything and win and as weve discussed on many threads I believe it helps them lol self-fulfilling prophecy and all that jazz lol The only thing you can do as a real poker player is play the best options and hope for the best the truth is (in my opinion) the stronger player will win more in the long run.

Yeah - i didn't want this to sound like some bad beat post.

It's juts interesting to see what some people do with their cards in these situations - I'm trying to imagine myself in a live tournament with someone doing that and me not slapping the s**t out their face.

Once I finished Bubbleboy in this BRMFreeroll, but I like them coz they hv 7min Blinds rather than 5min. That makes some difference! 5min Tournaments are more about making the right moves at the wrong time, whilst 7min tournaments give you a little bit more time to open up your game.

By the way:
This morning I finished 12th in the PKR early Bird 630$ prize money event. Top 8 got paid, unfortunately I had a bad beat with KK vs J10 offsuit on a flop 887, there was no flush draw, he had four outs and called my all in with the gutshot. I had 9800 he had 29000, blinds 1000/500, he limped preflop early pos, I raised 3000 preflop, then went all in with 6800 more on Flop. Turn a 9 so he made his straight, River blank.
That's what happened to my Token, could hv been from 30$ up to 200$ if I had won that hand. Aww crap!

That's just bad poker on their part - often bad poker plays when they have the bigger stack.

You're playing well though clearly.

J10 isn't the worth hand in the world as it completes straight draws obviously...but to call with 4 outs for a third of your stack is insane really.

It makes plays like going all in on the river with nothing but a flush draw seem like great strategy lol
