Default i love poker!

hey guys...just been playing a $5 20 man sng and this happens to me. yes i am crying about my bad beat but also i would like some feedback on my play preflop

do you guys re-raise m_carroll or just go all in as i did... my reasoning for going all in was that i was re-raised and generally a re-raise means someone is willing to commit all their chips to the hand...also i wanted to rid the callers and go heads up rather than have to beat 3 hands.
thanks alot

p.s k 10 cmon! i know its only a $5 sng but still.

Lord Mushroom is on a distinguished road

Since you had a caller in front I would have bet a little more than 60, say 90, but I am not a good player.

Also I would not have reraised as hard as you did, but perhaps I should start doing this in these situations if it actually is so that bad players who reraise won´t fold to a reraise.

It would be interesting to hear if others have experienced that bad players do this.

Anyway, being all-in with AA vs KTo is a good thing.

The bot has spoken.

I think you played it just fine. With A A, you want to get as much money into the pot pre-flop as possible.

If you've got a feeling that someone will call your all-in that early, go for it.

Oh, and don't be surprised by the all in call with K To. You'll see it all the time at the low levels. Players really overvalue face cards and Ax at that level.
The biggest hole in my game is me.
