this is one of those hands i know i played it bad but it was just too tempting to let it go. I knew i might be facing a stronger hand but since there was no action pre-flop and knowing the table was constantly being aggressive i took my chances
here's the hand:
PokerStars Hand #78719607260: Tournament #568010743, $1.00+$0.10 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level IX (75/150) - 2012/04/12 1:33:58 CET [2012/04/11 19:33:58 ET] Table '568010743 60' 9-max Seat #1 is the button Seat 1: andresete37 (5444 in chips) Seat 2: fido dido129 (6260 in chips) Seat 3: lukasema2 (5549 in chips) Seat 4: kebab16 (6221 in chips) Seat 5: sushma40 (8915 in chips) Seat 6: umbro10 (4400 in chips) Seat 7: Ruliano999 (11165 in chips) Seat 8: ActionDan9 (6990 in chips) Seat 9: edolino85 (2620 in chips) andresete37: posts the ante 20 fido dido129: posts the ante 20 lukasema2: posts the ante 20 kebab16: posts the ante 20 sushma40: posts the ante 20 umbro10: posts the ante 20 Ruliano999: posts the ante 20 ActionDan9: posts the ante 20 edolino85: posts the ante 20 fido dido129: posts small blind 75 lukasema2: posts big blind 150 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to lukasema2 [Kd 7d] kebab16: calls 150 sushma40: folds umbro10: folds Ruliano999: calls 150 ActionDan9: folds edolino85: calls 150 andresete37: folds fido dido129: calls 75 lukasema2: checks *** FLOP *** [Jd Qd Kh] fido dido129: checks lukasema2: bets 300 kebab16: raises 1950 to 2250 Ruliano999: folds edolino85: folds fido dido129: folds lukasema2: raises 3129 to 5379 and is all-in kebab16: calls 3129 *** TURN *** [Jd Qd Kh] *** RIVER *** [Jd Qd Kh 5h] *** SHOW DOWN *** lukasema2: shows [Kd 7d] (a pair of Kings) kebab16: shows [Js Qc] (two pair, Queens and Jacks) kebab16 collected 11688 from pot
Still thinking about this one really... my first instinct was to fold, but if he was holding a bigger hand why such a big re-raise? i don't know about u guys but if i'm sure im holding the best hand i try to increase the pot size and not to scare the opponent away. Made it look like he didn't want me to call/shove really; Even putting him on a straight/draw, 2 pairs (which was the case) or bigger K i still had some chances. oh well... hope next time ill make a better judgement or get luckier when gambling.

The problem i see is you bet in flop. In any way many players don´t fold FD + TP in this early levels becasuse they don´t have much to lose, your way is not strange to see in tables. I like to check in flop and see if i can call the next bet with my FD.

His re-raise was too big: I think he was putting you in a flush draw, like you really were, and never on a straight draw. I don’t think you played wrongly, his decision was way more risky than yours. If you had AdKd you would have lost in the same. Sometimes, we just have to face it…
For it would have been an fold after his reraise on the flop. Firstly you have to think what you can beat with your hand secondly the pot wasn't so big so you could have easily fold. Ok you have a FD and TP but what he wants with his big raise he wants you to buy you the next card cause he normally has you on FD due to no raise pre-flop and if not fold than call but don't go all-in what you think will call your all-in, that are just Hands where you need a third King or a Flush and maybe third king isn't enough. P.S. sorry for my bad english

I agree. with big raise he hope you didn't play draw. I often do that. Saver is check on flop cos since you bet, difficult to fold when hold K, your emotion will affect to your decision ( become to optimistic ) I am sure your judgement will be different if you check on flop, at least your analysis. Good luck next time
