      This happens a lot with me:

      After spending over 3 hours in the tourney and now finally close to ITM (49 players remaining). I am on button folded round to me(6-Max)

      I have 44, I move all-in with 18 BB(at that time I thought I had close to 15, my fault), BB tanks for a while then calls with JQs(only if he had offsuit, I am sure he would have folded). Flops both pairs and I am knocked out.

      What do you generally do with these small pairs on a small stack? I almost invariably am knocked out on these small pairs, or may be even decent pairs at times 88-99. I had a decent image till then, had folded a lot of hands, but had moved all-in couple of times in last 10 hands with AKo and AJs obviously nobody called that time!!

      std play, unlucky.
      you’d probably quit poker if you had seen as much of this as i have….

      yep std.. do it everytime.. one always remembers the beats .. never the time you held / the time you took it down without s/d.. keep plugging away 🙂
