fell for it
+1 I don't know what line of thinking is worse. His or the OPs. As others have said, this is definitely a shove spot pre. You have a good hand and some fold equity. The min raise is pointless and only makes the pot more enticing for the original raiser.

Game Selection Help
Seriously think about what you're saying. You'd rather play with very skilled players as opposed to weak fish who occasionally hit hands vs you' That just doesn't make sense and it really wouldn't be enjoyable or profitable being the weakest player at the table. You could just be on a downswing right now or you might need to examine your own game to see what areas you might have leaks that need to be plugged.

What do I do with AK here
I'm absolutely shoving this every time. You're only dominated by two hands and you hold two of the combinations for AA and KK so you are probably racing at the absolute worst. If the SB is a good player like you say they definitely could be trying to punish the limpers and don't necessarily have to have a hand here. Either way I like AK too much in this position to fold. I'm taking my chances with a shove.

BB Range calling
Agree with the above poster. If you had a bigger stack I wouldn't mind a call here but since you're at 15bbs vs a short stacks early position shove I would fold this also without much thought.

Fancy Beer Thread
I really enjoyed the pumpking ale from Griffen Claw. They have an awesome beer garden, too bad it's about to get ridiculously cold here in MI. Also really like the Neapolitan stout from Saugatuck brewery. That haul really looks like it will make for a lovely weekend.

Nice that you don't have a contract. Hopefully you don't have to deal with this when you do have to terminate your service eventually.

how can i play this differantly , was i right to shove here , is there a fold here ?
Pretty terrible play by AQ. I could understand limping to induce the short stack but when you shove he really shouldn't be calling there unless he has some really specific read on you. Well played just unlucky.

Hosting a home game (showing Hole Cards)
I really think you need to have set rules that the home game abides by and make sure that everyone knows them before playing. The fact that multiple people are exposing their hole cards before all of the betting is finished tells me that they really don't understand what's going on at the poker table. Just look up standard rules and abide by them.

aa early in tourney how to play
All of VAL's threads seem to be results oriented ramblings on about cooler hands. Everyone basically rehashes the same things everytime.

itm and correct play ?
Most of your posts seem to be result oriented Val. While all poker players goal is to make money you can't always use the outcome as your gauge or whether a play was correct or not. In poker all you can do is use the information you have to make the best decision that you can at that moment. You can't win them all and it obviously hurts more at the final table but you have to trust your gut and your reads and hope to be on the right side or variance.

whas this the correct play with kk deep in a tourney
BB actually made a pretty terrible play with an UTG raiser and early position caller with 17BBs. Unless you have been raise folding a ton UTG and the caller was calling light then his shove with QJ suited was horrible. Be honest, you don't post this hand looking for advice if it holds. You played the hand the best way you could and just got out run.

Final Table Advice
Never folding here and you wouldn't have posted this hand if the diamond didn't hit the river to give that nasty beat. Can't be results oriented.

*Mad Men Season 7 Thread*
The end of season 7 starts in early 2015 so a little less than a year. It really pisses me off how they've started doing shows like this. Drawing the ending out for years.

Extracting Value
Probably just calling the short stacks shove there although the original raiser probably still folds since the shove is almost half of his stack. But at least by calling you still give him the option of coming along. It's just really hard to disguise the strength of your hand in this spot because in order to make the call of the shove you have to have a pretty strong hand with 4 people still to act before the original raiser.
