Yeah earthWake, getting AA cracked hurts.
It's strange how I get weird hands on the first hand of a tournament.. Let me tell you about one more that happened a few years ago...
Opening on a $200. buy in tourney. I'll never forget this one.
I'm in 3rd position with 7-6 clubs.. This guy in first postion bets, about 3 times the big blind. First hand, so I figure, what the heck not many chips, so I call.. One other guy calls.
3 players to the flop.
Flop comes, 8-5-4 rainbow..Whoa.
The initial raiser, GOES ALL-IN ! with pocket K-K..
I look back at my hand to see if I'm seeing things correctly, to be sure I had a straight, ( I go over it slowly in my mind, 4--5--6--7--8 ) trying not to count on my fingers, lol ). I CALL. The other caller had pocket 8-8. He calls with a set.
Turn up the cards. Turn comes A .. River a J
I take down the pot. However, I finished 26th or 28th. Can't remember, But I know I didn't cash.
