  • Players usually don't raise from a 10bb stack and fold to a shove at this point in a tournament imo
  • Also the fact that villain just raised out of a 10bb stack instead of shoving usually indicates strength, if he's weaker he probably just open shoves, if he did open shove then this would be a call
  • I think this hand is close and obviously depends on the villains range, I would probably find a fold here, I wouldn't like it but you already have a comfortable stack and must consider ICM, I figure the good money is in first and second and losing …
  • This is really very stack dependent, if you are very deep stacked you can apply it the same way however if you are between 10 and 25 bb, betting with the intention of folding could be a disaster as you don't want to be in the habit of putting in hal…
  • I think this is a check fold, you may be ahead but more likely way behind, it is just to likely that someone has a king,just not a good spot to risk your tournament
  • I think I am calling most of the time against described villain, he probably pushes an extremely wide range here maybe even any 2 cards, you are so short stacked in comparison to the table, I think your hands are tied, unless you perceived him as ve…

  • Yes this would be cheating There is no part of what you are saying that would not be collusion , you would probably end up with problems with in the group as well, because of players that don'the cash but will still make money if all profit was equ…
  • Your calling ranges really should be villain dependent, when player are pushing pay attention to the frequency they push, if they pushed 5 times in an orbit you can likely open your calling range wider, if they seem to be waiting for good hands to p…
  • I think in villains mind he figures you can't call with anything other than a J or better. He probably put you on a pocket pair because most people won't play a J that way, he bluffs all in most likely believing it's the only way to win the pot. H…
  • Given that hero does not know villains exact hand, he is looking to get to a cheap showdown, there is not much that he beats after being called on the turn, getting one street of value is plenty with his hand on that board, if he bets river and gets…
  • Pre flop,I would 4 bet to like 2200,I would fold to a five bet if my opponent is a nit, if not I shove or call a shove in most cases unless I pick up some kind of tell that screams extreme strength, if he flats your 4 bet, he likely has a range of 1…
  • In tournaments high risk bluffs can certainly work but only in very specific situations in my opinion ,first off your line must make sense most of the time, you have to be against an opponent who is capable of making big lay downs yet not capable of…
  • Weird tournament, everyone that shallow, it's like a hyper turbo online sit n go live, anyway with stacks this short and a moderate hand that can flop well, standard call, your hands are tied

  • Shoving is fine, a more conservative route might be to flat call with position, it really depends on how you feel about your ability to play post flop against this particular opponent, if you feel you can handle him post flop I like a flat at this p…
  • In my opinion shoving pre flop is probably optimal , after checking pre I don't think making a move by shoving is going to work often enough, with 4 limps in the hand someone could have a weak ace trying to get to show down cheaply, but might call i…
  • Yeah that's the hard, annoying part of tournaments, but it happens to everyone, I bubbled once fairly deep stacked all in pre with AA to AK, it's part of the game. The reason aggression usually works well on final tables is because a lot of players …
  • Absolutely, it changes everything, sounds more like a bad rec player more than a nit if that's true, if you know this is true you must have seen him play some weak aces, so how does he play them? If he is sticky than this may just be a block bet,if …
  • I think he's probably folding pre flop,but because he's in the blinds it's possible for him to see a flop I don't see him calling the turn that light unless he thinks you are super bluffy, if you feel he perceives you that way you should call On t…
  • In my opinion someone who plays queens the way you described would almost never show up with a weak ace here, however if it's something you have seen him do before or you have some other tell on him then call.
  • Also folding when you think you are a 70 percent favorite will never help you win tournaments
  • You played the hand find, made a good read and a good call, try not to let bad beats affect how you play. As far as playing for first I find that aggressive play usually works best as long as it's calculated. Also try to pick up blinds and Antes a…
  • If this guy is as tight as you say I find a fold here, he at least has a king, maybe even slow played AK or KT, either way I don't see him making a value bet thin enough for you to call. Fold, conserve chips.
  • If you're planning on playing tournaments don't believe the misconception that a lot of players on this site seem to have. Tournament poker is no more based on luck than cash games, yes it's true that very bad players can win tournaments but they w…
  • I think I may be a bit of a nit and fold pre flop in this particular situation. Out of position against 2 big stacks this hand tends to lead to troublesome spots like this one, I say let the big stacks battle and wait for a better spot, especially…
  • Dpbuck thanks for all your input, yeah as I said I called but unfortunately he did not show up with 55 or air, I agree that there is not much air in his range and never would have called had he not had such a different look about him, I knew he was…
  • I am curious as to what some of you think the villains range is on the turn and the river. I did end up calling and will post the result soon, thanks for your answers so far
  • Any opinions to a better adjustment to this kind of table are welcome as it's not the norm where I play so it did throw me off a bit
  • I know the limp call is weird, the table I was at just had a ton of players looking to see flops, every time there was an early or middle position raise they would end up with a lot of callers, most hands were 6 to 8 handed to the flop, so instead o…
