Had this hand very early on and I think I read it perfectly.
Put my opponent on AK and played that way the whole way throughout the hand.
Let me know your thoughts if you would play it any different.
hand went they raised first position one call before me big blind I call. flop comes 3 Q 10. I have j10 and again put him on AK and maye even KJ but more than likely AK so He bets I call. 2 comes next he bets i call. and then he pushes and I call after 3rd player folds.
It seems to me that the game is absolutely normal .... The man was counting on the street and he was unlucky .... but if an ace came or 9 then you would be upset and angry .... recently I often see the discussion forum Distributions of card which are normal but why is that cause outrage

This is where your instinct takes over and sometimes you just have to follow these. A lot of the top players just go by the maths but sometimes you just have a feeling and, if you're wrong you just move on

i don't know... this is really typical of the game on incomplete information, in many spots you have to trust your instincts or take what can be called calculated risks, but really in any hand you can win big or lose big even though you pretty much continue to do the same thing... so yeah genius, no one doubts about that...

I guess it was not a super tough call with a pair of Tens on a Queen-high board if you had a good read on your opponent. You had him covered. Would you make the same decision if he had you covered? Is this a rebuy tournament?
Of course, you need to play in most cases mathematically, but sometimes there is a feeling that now it's the card that's coming that will come .... and it comes ..... it's certainly a very pleasant sensation that my intuition was right ... nice
