    If the table is folding to pfrs, then this open is good. If we have a reasonably tight image, then we're repping an overpair pretty convincingly on the flop. I really don't see anything wrong with...

    I think the point here with being 'results oriented' is that if your opponent had something on the lower end of his range, you wouldn't have posted the hand.

    It's a perfectly reasonable shove....

    We could get a bet on the river if we hit. That said, an implied odds call is a trap here. We never know if a Q or A river is good, and the flush draw is worse than 4:1 against if we discount the...

    Fold pre.
    Generally, you don't want to mess around with mediocre hands against really big stacks and really small stacks. BU and SB are huge and BB is tiny.

    Bet much bigger on the flop.
    As played, fold.

    edit: also, about the math(s)... he bet more than the pot, you need like ~ 40% to call

    Played it pretty standard, stayed a med-big stack through the first few hours then ran kings into aces pre-flop outside the money. In the future I'll avoid satelliting into satellites for satellites.

    First thought is b/f 700 but c/f is probably better.
