Poker pearl #58

Poker Pro magazine has a section called Pro's Corner. A different expert answers questions each month. In the June issue (see scan of cover above), Mike McDonald fielded a question by a reader who says he saved his whole life to play in the WSOP Main Event. On the first hand another player pushes all-in and he has pocket aces. He asks what should he do.

"This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I would recommend you save your money for something else if this is even a question. Play a few $1K events. Anyone who would consider folding A-A has zero chance of making it through giant fields.

"Good players make money by pushing small edges rather than passing them up."

They should get me to answer these questions. This one, I could handle.

  1. One would hope that someone laying out $10,000 to play the Main Event would have at least some WSOP donkathon experience. Otherwise, how would you have the faintest idea of how to play?
