Im right in the middle of a Maui SNG, 19 mins in to be exact. I have folded for the first 19 mins, and then I am looking down at AA UTG. I figured if I raised alarm bells would go off so I decide to try my luck with limping, if this was ring I would never put my stack on the line like this but for $5 bucks it was worth a try. I get called by both player on my right, i'm now thinking this wi gonna back fire until MP min raises me to open up the betting.
Since blinds are 20/40 his bet was 80, LP decides to raise it up to 280, it fold to me an dI make it 680 to go, limpers fold to MP (min raiser) who decides to call and reraiser in LP calls All in and has both of us covered. I insta call, then MP calls and flips over QJs. I havent seen such a donkey move in a while, this type of play reminds me why I play poker. LP flips over KK and my aces hold up and I triple up. I don't know how much more obvious I can be, a limp reraise, then I call all in adn the donk still calls with QJ. I cant really blame the KK here, im sure I would of thought I was ahead.
This is just a reminder to all you who see this play, the player normally holdes aces or kings in this situation, so be afraid of the limp reraise.
Im know 30 minutes in, were down to 5 players, and thats the only hand i've played, I wonder if they will catch on??
Hands in order from 30 minutes in:
Just stole blind in LP with AQo...blinds are 50/100
Next hand A10 MP...stole blinds again by raising 4x
K9o BB...folded to all in
called 4x raise with 88 hit set with flush draw on board
checked it...LP bet 300, raised all in to protect, and he folded

KQ bb Q on flop i bet they folded

I made a mistake when the board had 3 9s on it, and called with A high, He bet 800 into a 2400 pot with the top boat, opps, it cripled me and then I went out 2nd with 89s vs q2, he hit a str8.
Ohh well that was fun. Sorry about the terrible play by play but it helped me make less donkey moves than normal.
