    Dude just went all in with QTo-------What a joke----I guess he expected a call and indeed the guy in the cutoff gave him one with AA. ----Ridiculous play----

    Which kind of Poker...Hold 'em? It would not have been a ridiculous bet if the flop was Q-Q-10-4-7.

    Of course the pot odds would have been against him, but one never knows in a game like that.

    Yep. NLHem is definitely the height of gambling if you go all-in pre-flop.

    with something like QTo out of position, you're especially correct.

    And that is where it is especially profound, because the flop can go any-which-way. I am sure you've seen some crazy shit happen on those bets, the one I've mentioned, or the even more insane idea of pushing the pot with a 9-2 off against someone holding a high pair, and the things flops three more 2s, an ace and a 7. So the guy with the aces is like, "I got you. Aces high boat". Pushes the rest of his stack in. WHAM!

    Full house guy is wiped out to the quad. Incredible.

    Other factors matter:
    Board,
    Size of their chip stack,
    Blinds,
    Position from the button.

    And the size of their BALLS! That is the essence of NLHem and true gambling! To go all in on a QT off-suit it quite brazen. But you just never know on the flop!

    Unless you have an edge like Harry did, heh.
