SCOOP occurred to me this year in the same way as previous years: catastrophically. But I’m not here to whine (ç’est not want me to lack the same time) but just to show you the hand on which I bust yesterday and eventually ask you what you think. In a way, it is fairly standard I think in a tournament of this size.Main PokerStars No. 78934742374: Tournament # 2012031017, € 45 EUR € 5 Hold’em No Limit – Level XVI ( 600/1200) – 4/16/2012 1:41:08 EST [15/04/2012] [7:41:08 p.m.] [AND] 523

The two questions that come to mind (but you will probably others) is:
- Would you do a 3bet in my place instead of a shove? (I would have surely made against a single opponent, but with three in the game, I decided to shove, can be wrongly)
you’d pay with a pair of 88 in this spot?
