No reason to fold.


Edit: Allow me to expand. The only real time to contemplate dumping AA pre against 3 all in's would be if you were shortstacked and on the bubble and you were guaranteed to make the money by folding. When it is the first hand I say call and chip up or get ko'd.

I agree with Kane2 you either chip up or go find something else to do,like try to go win your 10K back at the cash tables.

You basically have a 50% chance of quadrupling your chipstack on the first hand Probably become chipleader. Would take a few hours of grinding to get even close to that many chips.

If i won with myAA on the first hand I would probably get a one round penalty for over celebration during which I would go find Phil Helmuth and tell him I will be gunning for him later on.

See I would think with 3-4 people in front of me all in..they must have a PP already..and the odds of them hitting trips is higher than me hitting trips.

That doesnt sound right.. say its 33 v 66 v JJ v KK v AA... and given that no one folded a 3,6,J,K or A.. The odds of any of you hitting a set is equal.
