starting stacks were 80 big blinds,
but after about 4 hours
I got up to 180bb,
we lost a player,
one guy had 165ishbb,
and the other had 70bb,
I get AKs first to act and I make it 3bb to go, dealer folds, and the blind bumps it up to 16bb(which was the guy with 165bb), I didn't want to play for stacks with AK, so I fold pre.
last time he put in a big raise it was on a turn
I had pocket 8's, action was my raise on the button to 3bb, he calls from the blind, he checks to me on the flop, I pot raise it with my set, he calls making the pot 18bb, turn comes the 9 and he bets into me 24bb, i fold my set face up, and he turns up KJo
so I decide to have my AK play another day.... at the time I figured "f'it, don't want a tough decision post, don't want to be flipping or worse for 180bb, I'm either gonna lose a big pot or win a small pot"
should I have at least seen a flop? never been in that spot before
he had jacks, like me he wanted to know where he was at before stacks went in... I used to play jacks like that but then I got some opposing advice, I dunno, I thought out optimal strategies, but I gave up on thinking I know the ("equity"?) of jacks preflop... stacked jacks once, hit my set, bet like I had top pair (10) trying to get two overs to fold
