      I will follow my rant with a hand so bear with me please.My querstion is what I did in this hand right? I have a read on the fish and the people left to act and i knew that exactly what happened would happen.Since I obviously can tell a little about the future my question is should I b getting it in here. This happens all the time, im running ok in a tourney and then something like this happens and im busted or seriously crippled.Should i fold, should i shut the fuck up and play more tourneys so this evens, out or is there another option?

      Looks good to me as long as you believe you still have fold equity.

      I just want to remind you to try not to be so results oriented when it comes to whether a play is correct or not. If it helps you got it in good in a situation that if you continue to make you'll show a good profit so keep your head up and play more :)

      Thanks Aaron, maybe this is somewhat of a problem. I dont want the limper to fold. I know im ahead of him and i was positive he wouldnt fold. Is this a wrong play, obviously if he folds great but knowing he was going to call is it still ok? If not what kind of % should i be looking for in a situation like this, 65-75%? Thanks ahead of time

      well if you know hes going to call then your putting your tournament on a pretty marginal flip but i definitely agree if you think he can fold its a push

      Thanks Doubleup, what do you look for in a situation like that? I was 59/41 there which I think is pretty good.He actually had a better hand than I thought as well.
