Went out pretty early in this hand. I felt my opponent had a good hand I just was not positive he had a better hand than I did. The hand was QQ vs KK. I saw the flop of 887. He stayed aggressive. I felt it was possible he had a higher pair but it was too difficult for me to let it go there. I could easily have dropped the hand and still had a nice stack. I knew my opponent had a strong hand. I think he also would have overplayed a hand like JJ in that position too so I am not too crushed by my play. If it was someone like Astin I might have folded pre-flop. I did respect this persons bets though and his re-raise of my initial raise threw up some warning flags. Perhaps next time I will let it go. Who knows. I really should have been gone a lot earlier but Blaaaargg folded AJ in this hand..

Sick fold by Blaarrrgg. Way too much respect there. Heh. Apparently Full Tilt was out to get me with setup hand last night. Oh well. See you all at the skillz.

I needed to fold there. Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to tilt off the rest of my stack 2 hands later with AK < KK! (rr from dueyv9 was OBVIOUS AA or KK - starting stack I would have flatted or folded - instead I tilt shove with my waffles depleted stack)

I played that entire hand horribly.... I couldn't shake the feeling you were playing me with KQ (or 9 Q) - which was completely within your range when you flat called me pf and on the flop. I was begging to be shoved on the turn there. A 10 never crossed my mind, but that board had too much crap going on for me to think my 2 pr was goot. Against anyone else it wouldn't be... lol

Waffles - or anyone else is looking at this - how would you play that hand differently in my position?

Always have a good time with you at the table waffles - see ya at the mook.

Told you i probably missed it, significant other notes I have this ability and use it often! (Missing stuff right in front of me)

Bah I could laid it down and still been a force, unfortunately being right doesn't mean it was the best move.
