I want to review three hands. The first is the one Wes mentioned. I am in EP, raise my AQo, and get reraised. Let's play Wes's favorite game. What could he possibly have. AK but why re-raise? AA again most people are just going to call. So the most likely hand in my opinion is a pair less than Aces. So why should I re-raise when I know I am slightly behind? I think that would be stupid Wes. I saw a flop. I hit my Ace. I trusted I was ahead. I played the hand perfectly and got two outered. Oh well. I bet every street pre-flop, flop, turn, and even the river. We will get back to that in a minutte.
Now I would like to review a nice read I think I made. I was play a "Wes" type player that puts you on a hand range and will not think outside the box. I knew this guy was a good player from watching him. He raised 1$ before me. I re-raised $5 with pocket rockets. Now normally this would be a stupid move however I knew that this guy would put me on a small pair. He chose the range of hands I would re-raise five dollars and ruled out aces and kings. The flop came Kxx and from his read of lower pockets he felt he was ahead. I was then able to stack him.
Now back to my MTT. I think I misplayed one portion because of frustration. I could have cold called the river and had around 4K left. Now that would have sucked but at least I would have been in the game and able to possibly come back. I put the guy on kings. I roped him in and had him bent over.. and then I not only let him go but gave him a fifty and told him to call me later. I need to realize as long as I have chips I am able to do amazing things. So next time I will just cold call the river king. I will go with my read. I will then have minutes to hours of calling this guy a fucktard until I bust.
