Final Table!




Raised with K-Qo, 1/3rd my stack, closer shoves. Shoulda just called, but i folded.

Final hand was J-10 UTG, folds around to tragedy in the bb, i figured he'd have A-A, no, just K-K but was goot enough I lose.

6th place for $35 bucks though, not too bad a haul.

i think a check on the first hand looks scarier than a cbet, but he prob didn't have anything anyway.

as for that shove over fritzle w/ AK, totally standard, no point in doing 3x.

how come you didn't post any of your resteals v. me?

everything looks completely standard.

I like leading flops when I raise and hit sets with an A on board - lots of times the AK/AQ will give more action than if you C/C or C/R, - and if you get a fold, you probably weren't getting any substantial action anyway...

AK plays are fine. Open shoving or reraise shoving when short stacked and picking up blinds and antes is always a good thing.

Don't be that surprised to get called with A7s - you only have 10BB, villain is priced in just enough, people will decide to go with medium suited aces there more often than raise/folding late.

Raise/folding KQo for a third of your stack is pretty brutal, though. Raise/puke and call (like Fritzle with A7s) or just fold preflop seem to be better options.

Nice run
