ok i need some opinions on this hand thats been haunting me for the past week. I'm playing in a $120 multi table tourney (live) I'm sitting in the bb with 9800 chips which i might add is a little below average. blinds are 300/600 i get delt 6 8 diamonds. utg limps as does utg+1 and the sb calls. i decide to pop it to 1800 to weed out the weak limpers. utg calls as does the sb. the utg call didnt bother me due to the fact that he basically plays every hand. but the sm spooked me a little. flop is 5,6,5 rainbow. i bet out 3200 and utg shoves with a bigger stack. sb folds, this is where i go into the tank. i've invested 5k into the pot i have 4800 left. now i've been watching this guy play like a total maniac the whole tourney. shoving with 7 high with no draws, and open enders. i couldnt give him any respect for a hand. more so cause he limped then flat called my raise. i call off my remaining stack and he flips pocket jacks. i"m railed and he says thank you as i leave the table. now my question is this...could i have got away from this pot?
So you raised to steal pf knowing utg never folds? I fold and throw my hand face up and tell him, "I can see into your soul sir. Not only do I know you are holding JJ, but I also know about what you do with your dog and that jar of peanut butter." If he doesnt get up and run crying then you did it wrong and should quit poker you noob. Thats how you intimidate an opponent.
