I'm probably being results orientated.
Last night I played the $5 $5k gtd. This is a 2k+ field that is usually straightforward to navigate through. 3 and something hours in and just into the money I am dealt JJ in the big blind. The cutoff MIN-raises. It's folded to me. The min raise is not scary. I've seen the cutoff play a lot of hands and it's like he thinks this is a limit tourney. In the dozen hands I've seen him play he has not bet more than the minimum on any street.
So I have about 12k he has 15k and the blinds are 400-800. He raise to 1600 so I make it 4k to go. One third of my stack. I think that says I pretty much says I have a hand. He flats my raise so the pot is 8,400 on the flop of KQJ with 2 clubs.
Ok, so what would you do here ? I'm thinking he must have connected with that given the PF action, so I shove and he calls and I think great. Then he shows A-Ten off for the flopped straight.
Did I make a mistake ?
Am I being results orientated ?
Is that just a cooler ?
I guess I am because when I'm not sure that usually means I am and I'm just in denial because it didn't go my way.
Still better than losing a buy-in I guess.
