Sal is a good player anyway and to make matters worse he just got the full double up with aces allin preflop. QQ wasn't folding, ever. Nice on level one.
Yesterday my only moment of doubt was the 1010,99,88 hand where I was 50/50 on shipping it in preflop or just calling and opted to call. A lot of modern players would say that calling 25% of your stack is just horrible, but then 90% of these guys haven't won 20% of the money I have in live events, and at the time to me calling just felt right given the table and it being a 3 handed pot. Shipping was also an option, I just didn't take it. I felt even losing that pot I had scope with a few spots at the table to get the chips back again. I guess fate had other ideas.
Just raised with A2 and got two callers. I flop the wheel and bet out, one caller. Turn is the absolute worst card in the world for my hand, putting 4 to a straight in the board and me just with the low end. I get moved in. A lot of people will just sigh and go broke. I'm now on 3500, not living the dream.
