I have quite a long experience of playing poker and I noticed that most of the players have an ace in my hands, I think that this is some kind of supercard ... with which they can win money ... I agree quite often sometimes this happens ... but not always .... therefore I have an ace on my hands especially if the second card is weak you need to have a careful game while

Both hero and villain are ultra short here with less than 6 BB each, so it is an easy call with the ace, even if the kicker is really bad. Opponent was very likely trying to steal the blinds here with any halfway strong hand that are weaker than A6o.

Yes, an easy call...but with some afraid too! This villain had played good cards in tight mode, and he had to bad beats vs another opponent so, with a short stack and an ace, I have no choice but I wasn´t comfortable with this move! But thanks to that I could return to the game, and arrive at the final table in prized position Blink

Of course, when several players at the table go all-in it's scary enough, as any of these players can have a very strong card in their hands .... and in the end there will be a big loss .... But on the other hand, if you win this is a great increase in bankroll and as a result of a rise by several places in the final table .... read your intuition

A bit on a loose side, but one vs one, both short stacked, its do or die, and far better to flip for all of it with an Ace in the hand, K9o he was just pissed he wanted to end it all, i would have w8ed for any Ax suited hand and went all in, but thats just me Big Smile

You see this every day n every game you play...... someone gets low on chips, has a run of pretty bad cards that they are itching to shove with and then BAM.......they are UTG and are thinking this is a great show of strength and everyone else will just fold as to call with seriously impact their slack size! But hey....out Hero pops up with a MAGIC ACE and only goes and wins it.

While lady luck was on your side, what cards did you think the villain had.....You describe him as having played tight prior to this? Was you call a gamble? or a considered move? If it was a gamble it could have cost you the tourney? In the end it didn't and it helped you out!

I will try to explain damosk, the Holly Poker´s Bible says that if you have an ace in your hand and five blinds in your stack, you have to go all in to steal the blinds. But not when another player went all in first of you. This move is in the "Desperate Anexus" Big Smile Big Smile But I remembered at that moment someone who says that UTG is the new position to try a I throw my soul to the lady luck´s arms!

REALLY ? steal blind at UTG with 5 players behind ? so risky..sound like theory from gambling player. But I am sure your opp wasn't to steal , often facing that condition, card dead situation and had lowest chip often push us to give up

Really Serpang, I hear an ironic sentence! But you have to know that I´m a low buy-in player, so you can see there the craziest moves in your poker´s life. Especially if the villain had two bad beats in a row. He showed good pairs of cards twice, and now he is in the UTG and goes all in. It´s a reasonable doubt...
