Regarding the Pain of Rebuy Tournaments.
Second hand of a very inexpensive rebuy tournament online.
Dealt 8s 9s in the big blind.
Six people limp, and I am given a free flop after resisting the temptation to min-raise.
The flop is Ac 9c 8d. I open by betting the pot and am immediately min-raised by the player UTG.
Two people call.
I push all in.
All three players call. Zoinks.
UTG shows Kc 5c for the nut flush draw…
MP shows a limped-in AQo….
And LP has TJo for the straight draw.
I have the best hand.
Turn is a red ten.
River is the Jack. of Clubs.
TJ has two pair, AQ has a straight, and K5s has made his flush.
I have the worst hand.
