The following hand occured recently in a $20+2 NLH freezeout on FTP.I was 10th in chips with about 100 of 140 players remaining. The blinds were only 50-100 when I was dealt A
2 off the button. The man UTG limped and the man 2 off the gun merely doubled the blind to 100. Instead of trapping, I figured an early position limper and raiser must= someone has a strong hand, hence I decided to isolate my aces against one of the early position players and made it 450 to go (I had roughly 4300 when the hand started.) The limper UTG called and the raiser folded. Great, I thought, this guy has JJ-KK or maybe AK. Now the flop comes A-3-6 and he checks to me. Now, I had already trapped somebody early in the tournament with a set of 9's so I decided checking here may arise some suspicion, causing me to bet out 400 into a pot of 1050. He immediately raised me to 800. Sensing he must have AK now, I moved all-in.What did he call me with?4
, Giving him a backdoor flush and an open-ended straight draw. The turn came Jack and the river.... 2.So there I was, busted with a set of aces against a guy who called me down with 5-high. Had I won the hand I would have been the early chip leader.Thoughts?
