Welp, playing $1/$3 today, folds to the button who makes it $12. I’m in the BB with AJo, and call. Flop is A77. I check, he bets $20, I call. Turn, J. I lead for $50, he calls. Turn, 2, I fire for $75 and he calls. I show, he mucks. I assume he had AK or AQ.
At a tournament final table in Vegas, 8 players, pay top 5. I'm lowest stack at the table, but a double up will get me in top 3 stacks. First hand I get dealt A-A, go all in out of postion, everyone folds but the BB, who had at least 3 rebuys during this tournament. We turn our cards, he shows 3-3. I'm feeling good.....until the flop comes K-9-3, miss on the turn and river and out in 8th. I seldom win with A-A, no matter how I play them. I have a friend that folds them, each and everytime.
So, I think that A-A are more of a jinx than A-J
