      Middle Tournament. Blinds 100/200--

      I am on the big blind with AQ suited spades. One caller infront of me. Next person raises to 400. One person calls. Then I call. Then the player after me calls.

      4players are now in. The flop comes Q.J.4,...J4 are spades. I am first attack so I raise 4BBs' ($800)..Player after me folds. The person who raised per-flop re-raises me to $2000. I at this point have $2500. So I re-raise all in.
      He turns over Pokets AA's,... I lose the hand without catching a Q or spade.

      How did I play this hand..?? Good or bad or should I have folded....??

      I like others input please reply.

      hi VallartaPV,

      was this a sitngo? or mtt? what was the buy in? i am just asking so that i can move your thread to the relevant section.

      if you didnt know yet, we have a hand evaluation forum where professional hand judges can take a look at your hand and how it played :) its a very good tool to further improve your game. you can also see other people's hands and comment on them as well :)

      smiles,
      wendy

      of course, so many factors can come into play, but if you wanted to know your strict equity, I can check on the PokerStrategy Equilator for you. :) you can download this software for free in our download section.

      AA vs AQs on that flop he wins 56.4% of the time and you will win 43.6% of the time. hope that helps!
