Hi all.  It’s been years since I posted and have just returned to play a little poker this year.  Have had a good year so far chopping the 25/25 series in Portsmouth and final table of 25/25 in Luton.  Today I decided to try the G casino. Luton.   Arrived at 4.15 for a 4pm start.  Told I was ninth on the waiting list.  This is a 10k guarantee tournament yet only six dealers.  Now the end of the second level and over 25 people waiting and still only six dealers.  Where is the logic.  Rumour has it that they have the remaining dealers arriving at 6pm   What about the players. Maybe they should just put the event off until they have enough dealers.   
Rant aside it’s nice to be back. Can’t say I recognise more than two people in the room.

That AA v KK v QQ hand is one of my top hands ever.

I was ~15, just got a tv in my bedroom, and I would watch those party poker 6max sngs instead of going to bed.

Hands like that got me hooked on this game.

Sorry guys for the slow response and cheers for the welcome back.   The most disturbing thing is having Ledders say he watched the AA vKK v QQ as a 15 year old in his bedroom.  Surely you had better things to do.  ??   I don't want to know. 
Perhaps it might interest you all those years later to know what actually happened with that hand.   Over the course of a few weeks prior to the event I had played a lot around London casinos and had spent hours at the same table as Achilleas.  I felt I knew his game and he had a few tells.  As the had unfolded I was delighted to see Kings and made a small raise.  I then get repaised from QQ and when it gets to Achilleas he does his routine. The chip count is important as he had already lost about 1/3 of his chips and had about 65k left. If I remember I had opened for about 6k and was reraised for perhaps another 12k.  Once he pushes I am convinced he has AA.  The reason I took so long was to seem weak to the QQ. I needed to work out if i shoved would he call.  I only had 6k invested and I had about 90k in chips.  If I could get QQ to call then the side pot would be good enough to take the chance.  However I felt if I played he would fold.  Once I folded then it made his call easier as he was not at risk of going out.  Seems so long ago now and I think Achilleas has had a lot of more important issues in his life.
Hope to see you all on the tables some time.

You also folded QQ to me once in a hand that wound up with my AA v KK v JJ. Q high board :-) Good fold.

interesting to read your analysis of the hand AAvKKvQQ as you saw it

I find the hand confusing because I feel like seeing the K flop bias's me too much towards you should have called hoped the QQ guy called too for you to have a side pot

I think me knowing that the player I think might have AA doesn't have me covered I would call as I ''cant get knocked out the tourn''

but still...... what an iconic hand.
