Played two tournaments at Del Park last Saturday, and didn't come close to a cash in either. The first was the noon $340. I was card dead (like, 74o, Q7o, J2o, T6o card dead . . .) for nearly the entire event. And my table had a lot of seemingly decent players. No limped pots, and lots of re-raising. It was hard to even find a spot to make a move. Of course, this could be because I suck at poker . . . I got blinded down to $7,000 chips with blinds at $400 / $800, and decided to just shove shit since I really wanted to take a food break and get back in time for the 7:00 pm....
As for the 7:00, I busted out at $50/$300/$600 with the chip average at $24,000. Here's the hand:
It's only the 5th hand or so I've played at this table after getting moved by the floor. No reads on anyone.
Villain 1: $16,000 on the button
Villain 2: $22,000 in small blind
Hero (that's me): $18,000 in the big blind, with AA
First premium hand I've had all night. Action folds around to the button who limps for $600. Small blind kicks in another $300. I debate repopping. But, the blinds are starting to get high, and I decide to try and play a big pot to position myself for a decent run. I flat.
Flop comes 3, T 7 rainbow.
Small blind bets $1,200 . . . I call . . . button raises to $3,000 . . . small blind re-raises all in ($20,000 or so).
What's the move?
