I was playing in the PokerStars Daily 30K on Saturday, and went pretty deep. This hand happened when there were about 100 players left.

Our villian in this hand was a reasonably tight player, so when he flats the original raiser, with his stack size, I put him on a medium pair or KQ, AT type of hand. He’s either not too strong here, or he’s huge (KK+).

I expect him to fold to the squeeze, but I’m sorely dissapointed to see him flat call me. When he flats my raise, I’m now convinced he’s on a pretty big pair, and I’m still wondering why he didn’t shove.

Obviously once the ace comes down, after I’ve 3bet in to two players pre-flop, I have to put out the cbet, putting him all in. I’m repping AQ, AK and I think it’s a really tough call, even for a hand as good as KK. I don’t see how he calls with JJ, but c’est la vie!

I went out a short while later, finishing deep at 92nd.
