This wasn't actually me but it is a real hand.  I wanted to get your feedback before I gave anything away.

So the result of this hand...you can see it here.

Would you have played that A6 differently?

I'm in a freeroll at Poker Stars.  It's quite early in the game and players are doing their usual "all in with rubbish" moves to build up their stack.

I'm Small Blind.  Everyone folds up to the Dealer.  Blinds are still 15/30.  
Dealer raises all in and I have  .  The play has been very poor up to this point.

What would you do?

i would fold,too much to lose and tens are very vulnerable....he probably has kings or aces and wants you to think he is just buying the pot by betting crazy, hoping for a call

Thanks dabigdog for taking the time to reply.

You are right - a fold would have been the correct move. But I'd seen this player play very poorly and decided he was using position rather than his cards to make the all in bet.

I called as did the BB.

These are their hands:

Dealer    

Big Blind    

Just my luck to call when he actually had a hand and just my luck that the BB had the same hand.  Needless to say, no 10 arrived on the board and these two shared the pot and I was out.

You made the right call dabigdog.

Easy call?

I'm UTG so I just limped in for two reasons.  1. I'm UTG! 2.  SB (x3nonx) seems to be a serial raiser.

I was hoping he would raise pre-flop but I didn't think he would go all in however, with 400 on the table for the taking, I guess he thought it was a good move.

The dealer hasn't raised many hands at all.

Easy call or am I up against Aces?

What would you do?

Hi blue,decisions...decisions!!! I"d more than likely fold but is he bluffing or trying to buy the pot???If he was a serial raiser like the other player I'd probably go for it because some players raise no matter what they have(the raisemaster...lol) or if your AK was suited than I'd probably call too but what do I know ....if I was good I'd be sitting next to Phil,David,Annie,Moneymaker,Fossilman..etc,etc...lol!!!Hope you made the right call.

Ace/seven
       Hi, my name is Robert Ginnane, and I'm sponsored by LPB to play tournament poker. You can check out my blog here newbielink:https://www.latestpokerbonuses.com/poker-blog/colonel1/ [nonactive]. I will be taking 1 hand from my tournament play each week, and ask you the question:

What would you do?

The blinds are 25/50 and I limp in with            in mid position, getting one caller and the BB who checks. The flop comes:

                    

I bet $150 and get one caller. The turn card is:
                 
At this point I\'m thinking the caller is chasing the flush, I bet $300 on the turn, the river card comes:
                   
I lead out on the river with a bet of $300 as a
"stopper bet" used to prevent the other player from attempting a river bluff. I get re-raised to $800 chips.

What would you do?
Have I miss-played this hand?
What do you think the other player has?

Hi Rosebud,

Well I decided to call.  AK is a great hand and I thought it was worth the risk.

The guy who originally raised folded - you can look at the result in the attached picture.  He disclosed his hand after the game had been played.  He had JJ.  Good result for me, bad result for him.

Blinds are 500 / 1000.  You have 3600 chips and you're dealt   .  You flat call for the 1,000 and nobody raises (you are in mid position and 2nd to act).

The flop comes down     and first to act goes all in.

What would you do?

I did call as I figured I was in the lead with the Ace kicker.  

The players revealed their cards and one had   and the other one has    

The turn was and the river was  

So I was in the lead on the flop but ended up losing to a hand that had nothing.  Such is poker I guess.

I'm very short stacked (164 chips) and I'm the Dealer.  I'm dealt  

2 players flat calling the Big Blind. 

Bearing in mind I have position here - would you go all in with this hand?

I would probably fold, you still can get something better until the big blind gets to you. But an all in also isn't a bad move, you can get a flush or a straight.

It is important what type of tournament this is, how many players are still in there. If you are at the final 2-3 tables, and you can win something better if someone else gets out before you do, i think the best option is to fold and wait.

It was a 10 seater sitngo with 9 players left.
