ok so i played a live tourney earlier and this hand came up. want some feedback as not sure what i should be doing. its jsut started so all our stacks are ~15k at 50/100. utg raises, utg+1 flats, mp1 jams, sb calls, i look down at AA. i mean are we ever folding here? what are the chances we hold. i think this could be a spot whre we just sigh fold and wait fora better spot. my line was that at least one other was going to call and AA 4way pretty much sucks. thoughts?

This is better than "I like pee pee" imo!And hero folds here 100%. No way you ever hold here the way you are running. I would wait to be dealt at least 3 aces pre, or K666, which is the nuts.

I believe this thread is worthy of my first post on these forums.

Proof that even 3000 posts isn't enough to start topics?

even if we are chopping with someone or praying to hold, the math is we build a much bigger stack a lot. I mean i instantly call and pray for a monster stack so i can win the tourny. We can NEVER fold here we have the best hand in holdem. I realize it is a gambol to hold 3 or 4 way but seriously if you fold this i will cry a bit. And a child in africa will die when you fold AA pre every single time! it is impossible to ever not have correct equity to call and all in pre for your whole stack with AA, EVER!!!! i mean shit you have 3k posts, i am not trying to be an ass here but are you ****ing serious!

Oh, he's serious!!!!There is logic though. Often you will have 2 hands with AA and one with KK. That means the KK hand has 2 outs and we have none. That can't be good.

rrumsey, if you think getting it in is correct here i think you have to take a long hard look and re-evaluate your position and knowledge on the game.

So this isn't the first hand of the main event?! mehhhh I think its pretty close. Folding prolly being the safest option, though it is a bit weak...i think its what a lot of higher stake mtt players are advocating. We don't want to risk our tournament live in a multiway pot when someone has a sneaky hand to suck out on you like 87s or something like that. Lets just play to make it deeper in the tourney
