Hope Everyone had a Happy Mother's Day

When you have an only child she realizes that without her presence wife would not be celebrating Mother's Day so it is really about daughter.

Wife wanted to see IronMan, daughter was not in favor of this more, she is not a boy, she is not into adventure, she was slow getting ready, we arrived at theatre 5 minutes after it was scheduled (luckily caught 1 preview then movie started), and kid wanted movie junk food and had not brought her own money. Daughter enjoyed movie but would never admit it.

All through dinner and when we were watching Survivor daughter was really giving me crap. Wife kept reminding me she is 13 and her hormones are in flux. Daughter finally let us know she was pissed at me because "He had called me something that sounds like witch, but begins with his 1st initial", my defense is I did not, wife reminded daughter that she had called her a bitch not Daddy. My non-favorite status is cemented because she accepts wife said it but my being annoying caused her to act bitchy.

Will close with MTT Sat strategy question:

ez fold...AQ sux.

Mike Maloney said...

You shouldn't have to act because you should have already checked the 'Fold' box before the action ever even reached you.

OhCaptain said...

Of course, that is the hand of the devil and can't possibly win. Easy fold.

You are blazing the trail for me with teenage daughters. I get to survive two of them. Thankfully, they aren't teens yet, but the 8 year old is starting to show the attitude.

As the only male in the car, I'm quite often blamed for strange smells even though the wife has sly grin and opened the window before first whiff. I hate that.

insta fold.

what'd u think of ironman? i was really surprised at how much i liked it.

yeaz said...

Easy fold. Too much risk. Did you win eventually?

CEMfromMD said...

Easy fold. No way you take the chance at this point with only 10 people before the bubble.

lucko said...

I would insta-fold Kings here. It would probably be right to fold Aces here too.

Bayne_S said...

I did fold,

Never played another hand.

table played fast

I went out 103rd

KajaPoker said...

you should have slowed the table down if it was playing too fast. but the AQ is an obvious fold right there.

Hammer Player a.k.a Hoyazo said...

I would never fold Kings here and might definitely give some thought to calling with the AQ. In the end I probably fold it, but I don't think it's nearly as cut and dried as some of these commenters seem to believe. The blinds-push just seems to suggest you are likely ahead. Which I bet you were.

Bayne_S said...


Don't think question is really are you ahead?

Since he was open raising every chance he got I assumed I am ahead of range.

It is more of a question of even if you were 3:1 fav do you make call? given 10 spots to seat and you are 61/110

Zeem said...

Well the assumption that you can fold to the seat was not quite accurate. Your preference would be to push around smaller stacks, but I agree with Hoy that you are likely way ahead.

When you're 64/110 with 100 seats, you need to get that seat most of the time.

JD Schellnutt said...

Really surprised at Hoy's comment here (mono induced?). This late in a SAT where 1st = 100th, I can shove AQ there but cannot even fathom anything but an instafold there to a pusher from any position that has me covered. Even if he just shoved 23o in to you there, you are only a 2:1 favorite. I could not bring myself to fold KK like Kevin would even though I agree it is the right thing to do there (unless there are 15 or more people with an m of 4 as it would just be too likely you could outlast 7 of those and 3 people who have medium stacks but can't get away from their AK or AQ when a bigger stack shoves them). Tough break on the 103rd result...but you easily made the right decision there. Have to hope you get a chance to shove something in to the shorty behind you, and guy that barely has you covered behind him (as he cannot properly call with anything less than AA or KK given your stack size to his) soon after your AQ fold.

nextel420 said...

lol I remember that hand.. I pushed because I knew you were going to fold... if you called I still have plenty of chips to win my seat... and I didnt think you were willing to put your stack on the line with 10 people left.... I do think that AQ had me crushed tho :P
