Out in first, errrr First Out I mean!

I played in the 10pm Shilo game last night, well kinda sorta, I played 1 hand. I'm in early position of our 8 handed table and find AQs. Remember the blinds are 250/500 and we only start w/ 8500 in chips giving us an M of 11 (M = Your Stack Size divided by [BB + SB + any antes] and tells you how many rounds you can last at the current level. What this means is you have to mix it up. In a large tourney w/ a starting stack size of say 10,000 and blinds of say 25/50 you can have an M of well over 100. So as much as I don't like AQs in early position throwing the hand away is a terrible play, as is limping. The hand figures to be the best and the only question is how much to raise. I settled upon a strong standard raise to 2500 straight for a couple of reasons. From early position I could raise less, but out of position I didn't want to play anymore than 1 opponet. If I was reraised I could still get away from the AQs If I sensed strength. Well I got 1 middle positon caller and 1 late position caller. Interesting, I still likely have the best hand. The flop came K,rag,rag 2 clubs, no apparent str8 draw. but did give me the nut flush draw w/ 4 clubs. I've got 6000 in chips left and the pot has over 8K in it. I want those chips! I'm first to act, hmmm what to do. What kind of hands would have called and not reraised preflop? A strong ace, or KQ are possibilities as are small and medium pocket pairs. KJs? some players might. I could check with the intention of raising all in on a semi bluff, lead out at the pot representing a pair of k's or push all in. With the pot so large in relation to our stack sizes any bet less than all in would be make a very tempting call for any top pair, flush draw, or hand like TT. The way to get those chips is to push all in, even that is a less than pot sized bet, but that move gives me 2 ways to win, my 2 opponets fold or I catch the flush. Middle position went in the tank for about 1 minute and called w/ AK, the club never came and poof I was out. It was definately an agressive play on my part, but I'm convinced the all in was the correct play. If I had raised less preflop and got the 2 callers I would have had more options on the flop but who's to say I wouldn't have been reraised by the AK?

Gonna try and get some points at tonights game.

Here's a pretty cool hand type frequency chart I found.

Your post is great and let me say

A favorite pastime of mine is Sports Betting to make a few extra bucks.
My only problems is that I was never good at picking teams or games.
Recently I found a site that is like Sports Betting but I dont lose my money if my pick is bad.

Its a sports stock market, kinda like NASDAQ. which makes a big difference because if I buy shares in a team. I keep the stock whether they win or lose, but as a bonus I get paid divdends if they win.
So I can make money with dividends and also from selling high and buying low.

I buy shares in NFL, NASCAR, NCAAB, MLB, Golf, Tennis ect....
They just released Some Great IPOS's this week!

Stop Complaining
by: bad credit debt consolidation loan quote

You might think there is no correlation
between complaining and success when in
fact there is a connection. When you
are spending time complaining about the
obstacles you are facing, you are wasting
so much time being negative that you are
actually loosing chances to move forward.
Instead of thinking of challenges as
problems, think of them as opportunities.
