Default Sunday Million at Poker Stars

I had 65k in chips and blinds are 1k 2k, I limp under the gun with AK clubs, A 10k extreme shortstack goes all in. SmB calls the all in. I Move all in to Isolate the short stack. The guy in the SM B has me barly out chipped and he calls and turns up qj off. I got my ace but he turned 2 pair. Ever since that day I have despised QJ.

I'm in the fold camp as well. As stated before your M is healthy and you are not in the best position. There's little to gain and a lot to lose even if the initial raiser is an ATC player.

At a high M its only value to me is to raise an unopened pot in LP to steal some blinds.

Default QJ It can Make ya Or Break ya!

Q J off has done me good once too. I had just made the money in a $7500 guarenteed. I was so excited. On the button I raise with QJoff. The BB calls. I flop my ladys. I bet, he raises, I move in not even imagining I'm beat. He turns over the rockets. I find my third lady on the river. I go on to capture 6th and win $450 off a $3.75 qualifier. Not a beleiver?
But I do agree with above post. Stealing is the best option with QJ. Take it down preflop baby!

Default No freaking clue

No clue why that came out such a mess. The e-mail summary doesnt look like that.
