      Sorry guys-i cant seem to work out the HH replay button to upload hand.

      Ill try and explain hand.Dont know wether i should fold or can fold or if its just unlucky.I think the latter but obviously if others disagree i can learn.

      25 players left in $1250 guarantee.
      Im second in chips with 84k.
      Blinds. 2.5k 5k

      UTG I Raise to 10050.with Ace King offsuit
      All fold to tight button.Key point is he hasnt hardly played a hand since he sat down.He has 79k.

      He raises to 47500.And obviously commits so hes never folding if i jam.I do jam and he has Aces.

      Bang im gone near enough-end of tournament.

      It may just be a complete unlucky hand and it has to go in but thats what im asking-with him being so tight do i fold,or call like i did and hope to be racing rather than dominated.

      I wouldnt mind folding anything less than QQ here
      I know more or less it will be a flip
      but do you want to get involved in a flip for almost ur tournament life when u are in 2nd place?
      That too against an opponent against whom you might as well be way behind?

      I know its nitty but i wouldnt mind getting away from the hand

      If someone with less chips or loser player had done this id be snap calling it

      Yea usually I never fold AK pre-flop. But if the guy has barely played and you're high in ranks and you're close to the final table, I would fold the hand and just wait for a better spot later on.

      Thank you for the advice.

      Having slept on it i totally agree in hinesight.Totally player dependant and stack size dependant.

      Maybe we can try and sort this out for you :)

      Which site was the hand played on?
      Are you copying the Hand Details from the Poker Rooms software?
      Or from Tracking Software such as Holdem Manager?

      Just playing on Everest and intially tried through elephant but for some reason it hadnt tracked the hands in the tournament.....presume it is just for cash.

      So then tried Copy paste HH from their own history which didnt work and then jsut tried other stuff-something to do with clipboard/save as text ...everything i tried didnt work.Think its me rather than the software though-total technophobe!!!

      Our hand Converter here doesn't support Everest :(

      This site should work though http://www.handconverter.com/
