      OWN ANALYSIS

      UTG+2 is tight player, with VPIP about 5-10, and raising in early position indicated strength. Had already 3 people in the hand before me, but I still raised all-in according to strategy.

      I don't know if I'm thinking result oriented, but I think I shouldn't have played that hand, and better waited for another one, as UTG+2 had probably a better hand than myself.

      imho you did right,just unlucky.UTG+2 can hold not only AA,but AK(you are slight favorite),your equity against JJ+ is 36,6%,against 55 is 64% .Many times all in preflop is a coin flip situation.You can consider folding JJ in 3bet situation if you have stats.
      Good luck. :D

      P.S.It is not last premium hand you will lose ;)

      Thank you for the advice and facts. :)

      Btw, I'm just getting out of a ugly downswing (-140 BB), so I already know rivers are not the best friends of premium hands, specially AA. :D

      first, don't post the result.

      why you thing utg+2 is tight? any Stats or have u observed many hands?

      He often has something like AK or AQ und so you are a littel favourite. With the dead money from the limpers its quite profitabel for you.

      Ok, no more results. :D

      Have the stats that PS Elephant gives me, VPIP was about 6/7, PFR was about 5. Observing, I would have said he was a BSS player, rebuying to 10 USD when he lost, but when multitabling it's often not easy to observe a lot. But learned the lesson (140 BB downswing this weekend), so now I'm only 2/3-tabling, and things are looking better.

      with 5 pft its a lightly fold.

      play a little with the Equilator and you will find this out.

      Nice hand. It was enough dead money in the pot to push here. Keep it up that way and you will be fine.
