The strangest hand I was ever involved in!  0   
I was in the BB and had 5000K chips, I was dealt AK. The average stack was 4K. because I was new to the game I realize I should have played this hand differently, but I got really lucky! Anyways, Position 1 limps in, Position 2 calls, the button called, the small blind called and me with my AK should have raised but I was new so I checked. The flop came 10, J, Q. Position 1 bet pot, position 2 re-raised pot, the button went all-in the SB called and since the 10, J, and Q were off suit I had the nuts and a very strong chance of winning so I abviously went all-in. To my surprise position 1 and 2 did also. We had 5 players all-in, unreal! This is how it played out the turn was a 5 and the river a 2. That read 10, J, Q, 5, 2. I had the nuts because there were no flush possibilities. Now here is why everyone stayed in. Position 1 had JJ, Position 2 had QQ, The button had AA and the SB had KK. Crazy my AK took down JJ, QQ, KK and AA all-in all together all the same hand. What are the odds! Anyway have you every heard of a stranger hand? I have heard of some really sick Bad Beats but this hand was sick. Talk about a cooler!

Thats one serious hand of poker! I would of got ants in my pants flopping the nuts, with all them players pushing all in, but for a second you must of been worried about a full house? just my luck i probably would of lost it with your cards!

Shame you didnt have a screen shot of it Evil

I know right! I was very new to online poker and would have done that now, beacuse it is hard to even explain this hand! I mean I have seen some strange ones, quads vs quads, straight flush vs royal flush and even AA vs AA vs KK but none of those were as sick as my hand!

If this hand really happened and I only have doubts since it seems odd all five of you would limp in, then it really was a strange hand. And all those guys deserved to lose since none of them raised preflop.

I think this story is not true... Maybe I m wrong but it seems impossible Tongue

I assure everyone this hand did happen and it was during a freeroll, which explains why the players at the time "like myself" were fish. Every hand got better so this is what I thought they were thinking. 1st position, I will just limp in to see if I can trap someone (JJ) 2nd Position I will smooth call for the same reason (QQ) Button (AA) oh my god I am gonna trap everyone, SB (KK) lets see a flop and make sure no A comes and me well I had nothing to lose so I checked. Any multiple raises and I would of had an easy fold and so would JJ and QQ, but the order dictated the hand playing out like it did.

thats pretty wild! more surprising than anything is that nobody raised preflop. how did you do in the tourney? i would assume you made a nice cash.

i am sure it did happen never mind comments otherwise poker players are by nature susspicious , I would just like to add that limping in with AK is not necessarily a mistake , I do it sometimes depending on the game and the type of player I am up against , sure it can be annoying if you limp with it and miss the flop then have to fold when a raise would of possibly took say the blinds preflop, but when it works it can pay big

I guess about less than 2%! Strange hand and strange way to play, so ... double strange hand!

Yes, as always, depending on the situation. In poker you can never say "you must do so". The answer is always "depending on". But, in general, let's see ... sng go 6 players mid-blinds, or cash game, you are in a midde position and everybody has folded, limping here is an error, in my humble opinion.

yes but as you say there is no must do, and if the player in late behind your middle position is doging you or hyper aggressive limping can and has payed me in the past, and theres nothing better than trapping these types, I call it giving them a slap!!! Blink

lol.. just because you believe something doesnt mean its true havnt seen this one but seen stranger and I am sure the hand discussed has happened many times in the past probably countless times, better just discussing the hand or his play would be more constructive , rather than testing its reality

Bad Beat? Where do you see a bad beat there?
All the money went in, when you had the nuts. If all the others were too stupid to raise preflop, its there own fold. If P1 raises, P2 reraises, Button re-reraises and SB re-re-reraises and you still play AK, than you have a bad beat, cause you are way behind and still gets into the pot... But if they are too bad to play there monsters right, there is nothing to blame you!

Well I still have strong doubts about whether this hand happened exactly as the op says. And it's not because the cards are AA v KK v QQ v JJ v AK with AK winning - That's perfectly believable. What's odd is how this hand was played. And yes poker players probably are wired to be suspicious and I myself am a very sceptical person but I do not believe people act like this even in freerolls.

In fact, given that it was a freeroll I'd expect to see everyone all-in preflop. What makes me more suspicious is that the first to bet the flop is JJ. Why would a donk in the small blind with KK check. If he's that cautious he wouldn't call all-in surely. It makes no sense unless the op has forgotten that the first person to act preflop is third to act on the flop.

However, ignore my scepticism for a moment and we shall assume that the op has no reason to lie. In which case, I agree that there are some odd cases where we can check AK and this may be one of them. He can't know that everyone else has him dominated, but he can assume that a standard raise will get called by most of them with any two cards. He will have no read on any of them and having made a large pot preflop will be relying on his abilities to outplay 4 players and hoping to hit a good flop. So the check is probably right for AK.

A call from the button with AA is criminal. Allowing limpers that we cannot have much read on to hit a flop and with four of them in, there is more chance that someone will outflop him than no one. Limping from JJ is unexpected in a freeroll but not so bad play if he knows how to play post flop. QQ should probably be raising though.

oh, i almost have forgotten this video. This is just so cool. 6 handed and 5 pocket pairs and one guy with broadways... AA+KK+QQ and KK folding when the board includes later on a King and a Queen, sick hand Big Smile

well said, but I think you are reading to much , sure everything you say is correct in a decent tourney, this is obviously just a donkfest

The small blind KK had an over pair with a open ended straight draw, my best assumption is he felt he was trapping as I did as well flopping the nuts. 1st position, the first bet got the action going.
