This is how lucky I am.  0   
I had a very short bankroll.. Had won like 2$ in freerolls, then went up to 15$, lost 10$... And on tilt moment I decided to join a 1k GTD tourney at partypoker, paid 2$ for buy-in almost 50 of my bankroll Big Smile

I played it nicely and reached the final table being the number eight at the table, went up to second place, and suddently this happenned:
WHTF! Why did this happenned at the final table and at a tourney that I never play?! He even gets his four of a kind, check the picture to understand.
And I finished 6th, 41$, not bad for my bankroll, but could be so much better if that guy didn't got all the chips from me.
How would you guys play it? I raised 2x BB, then the guy raises 1BB, I went all-in.. Is that wrong?
Even if I saw the flop, I would have been trapped anyway.
But I kinda deserved it... Rivered a straight with A/K vs K/J (the guy had J at the flop, but at the beggining I had the best hand, his fault if he called my all-in... ) and rivered Q with allin preflop A/K vs A/Q Cool


Hope I get a bit more of luck next time..
See you guys



(Just wanted to tell my story to someone, lol)

ul. I know what it's like, a while ago I was playing the monthly $2.5K added MTT on PKR for silver member, total prizepool was ~$8k and I finished 10th for $140 or something, but 1st was nearly $2k and I hit the final table as chip leader, then lost most of my stack on AA vs KK, I had As he hit set on river.. Sucked, was playing for 7 hours, since 3.3am and was pretty excited about some decent money..

And just other day I bubbled a $3K freeroll on PKR, I lost KK vs A 9 (I had kings, he hit flush on river) and I was in the top 40 with top 200 paying, and only the guy who took me out had more chips on my table lol..

still, nice result.. just be happy with that and better luck next time

I think you raised small but apart from that you couldnt avoid it at all.

Although saying that in the WSOP two players folded KK preflop and both times they were right. But thats a completly different ball game

This is a very good advice, always half the BR for a buy in... Blink Blink Blink

A setup like aces vs kings and a bad river card are things that happen all the time in poker. You better get used to it.

Come back and complain when you have lost against a few runner runners in short time.

Hi Pitiless.

Some things:

1. Hands. Well played, bad lucky. Nothing to say.
2. Never play the 50% of your bank in one tournament, SnG or Cash table. Bankroll management is your best friend, use it.
3. Great job, nice $$.

Bye!!
