Where do they get these players?
Playing in a $12+1 MTT on Bovada today, I was struggling along with 4120 in chips where the starting stack was 5000. On the button, I picked up ♣A ♠A and was delighted to see it raised three times the big blind to 900 and a call.
Because there were two of them, I would normally make a big re-raise to try and end it there (or get heads up). Because I needed the chips, however, I took the risk and re-raised only to 1950. The original raiser moved all in and the second guy also moved in.
I called, of course, and my hand held up. The first guy had Q-Q, but the other guy showed: ♣8 ♦5!
