Improbable is a participant in every tournament.  He rules the roost until his brother, Impossible, shows up and showing up is a given.  Here is my variation on a classic.  OK, I have too much time on my hands.

  • You are chip leader 60:40 at the table
  • Distribution is heavily weighted to the top position
  • 5 are left
  • on the next hand the other players are all in with roughly equal stacks

Would you fold your pocket aces?

    You have too much time on your hands … or someone gave you some amphetamines that you are eating like M&M’s.

    Snide remark denied.  You are welcome to multiple snide remarks after you answer the question.

    Yes I fold AA there.  I’m not a favorite with 4 others already in and I’d rather take my chances heads up with a guy willing to call multiple all ins.

    Hey, I finally get someone to not wuss out. Thanks, Friend!

    But are you sure? 🙂

    You aren’t that big a dog. It is likely there are a couple of hands with lower pairs as 7:1 shots. Luck would have the other two with AK and the same 7:1 for them to chop. You are hurt but not destroyed if you are beat.3/7th is about what most 40:60 races are offering. Whoever is left against you would have a very playable stack and a chance to get it in better against you and take the lead.

    Yeah, I don’t think there is a real answer. I’d likely fold `em too. I’ve certainly folded KK, AK, QQ etc. in somewhat similar circumstances.
