*** FLOP *** [Ah 6d Jd]

Cool. Top pair. The only hand that beats me is a pocket set, or AK. There are two diamonds, so I don't want anyone to catch up. If someone managed to flop a set, well, then so be it. Besides, maybe it will look like some sort of stop-n-go where I could have anything. Maybe I'll get a call from a weaker ace.

hero bets 1,295, and is all in
Seat 1 folds

Probably re-raised with pocket kings or pocket queens or some such. Obviously pocket jacks weren't folding here. :)

villain calls 890, and is all in
hero shows [Qh As]
villain shows [Kh Qd]


This is, like, 5 hands into the tournament. Would I really bluff both the pre-flop raise and the all-in with any hand that could be beat by king high? I wanted to induce a call, but who knew it would be a garbage hand?

Uncalled bet of 405 returned to hero
