  1. reach out to better players and put a magnifying glass to their play...
  2. completely changed my mind on this spot, definitely flatting a pretty wide range here a fair amount... some suited connectors and broadway cards and some of the less scraggly Ax's... as well as some big pairs sometimes... this range dictated alot by the raisers opening range, vs tight opponents who are going to be heavily weighted in broadway cards you can flat a pretty wide range here profitably with a little creativity post flop... vs looser opponents you could consider flatting here with some slightly more raggedy broadway hands as well as some Ax situational obv...
  3. i would really doubt that this is profitable with that wide of a range as a standard against competent opponents in these stages of a tournament... OR's cbet and opening frequencies might dictate a defend w a decent range possibly but i will need more convincing...
  4. open for less, your open here looks really strong you are going to get credit continuation betting virtually any size... you can bet extremely small on this flop and give yourself plenty of room to maneuver and have options on later streets... opening for around 16k and continuing very small on the flop is completely legitimate...
  5. flatting is often optimal with big pairs in his situation particularly vs an open from reg who will interpret your jamming ranges well and call accordingly and who is also capable of opening and folding with a wide variety of stack sizes, but i would only snap heavily weight that range vs the better regulars as a standard. i would consider flatting a wider range with this stack very situationally...
  6. don't open hands from spots where you are very likely to get jammed on with hands your not calling with... open small with hands you want to get jammed on or from very strong looking positions as steals and in later position be aware that you should be jamming the lower end of your value range if you don't want to induce shoves from other players... play tight early and take advantage of good opportunities to let people punt a stack to you seeing a flop with hands that can hit really big i.e. pairs some suited connectors etc... you'll be fine and the more work you put into your shoving/calling
  7. can't breathe did i really just read through this?
  8. sorry for leaving this sit so long... thank you for the analysis. Seems like the consensus is the best line here is to flat the turn planning to call off on essentially all rivers with a few gross exceptions. Without disagreeing I would like to elaborate a little on my perception of villains range. I think that we all agree that we cannot fold the flop to this c/r... I will add that my read on his hand given his timing/ my perception of the player/ gravity of the tournament/ etc is he was unsure about the hand and I confidently ruled out most pairs and certainly over pairs before the flop. I c
  9. i've become a reg on merge last few months and 13hope17 is one a few good regs on the site that barrels pretty much all the trnys. table dynamics play an enormous roll in how many hands you can open in these situations, but with solid players/ regs on your left having a shorter stack like this can be to your advantage when opening for steals because this stack is very difficult to play back at. an open with say 13bb gives the perception of a jam without risking your tournament life or drastically changing the playability of your stack, choose these spots carefully but if you pay close attentio
  10. 61 remain in the main event. Playing 30k-60k with 10k ante. Moved to a new table and I have position on Yuval Bronshtein the only player I know at the table or even recognize (I'm ecstatic as this is the first time in 3 days I have been excited about my seat). I have seen roughly 3 orbits and the table has been extremely tight. In fact the bb has had walks multiple times, I do not recall ever seeing a 3b, and the middle aged gentleman to my immediate left is openly talking about how he got out of line earlier and is only going to play premium hands and has snap folded every hand. I am moved to
  11. cbet smaller on the flop imo... like 8-925ish looks better to me, although being on the larger side sizing pre and on flop might have contributed to him tooling a bit here... calling turn looks standard, but if we had beamin covered I might discuss min raising turn hoping for a stuff...
  12. hand one: preflop fine. bet smaller on flop, c turn, fold as played.hand two: raising pre is probably fine at this stage but whatever, raise flop and build a pot, just call turn...hand three: high five yourself and get it in... you might even just consider open jamming pre, with that much in the middle it can be perceived as weak enough in many tournaments imo... if the dude who clicked it back on you is over the age of 50 and you are feeling like a superstar you could muck your kings face up for the story
  13. when you post hands please include the blinds/position/reads etc
  14. In such a soft field I would strongly consider just folding AJo under the gun here especially with this stack. Possibly someone could maybe convince me into check folding this turn against the most passive straightforward opponents out there, however I think that check folding this turn as a standard is getting completely ran over in general. Villains with any competency can be expected to bet this turn with a large portion if not the entirety of their range a very large percentage of the time especially with stacks that can set up for a pot size jam on the river... In general if we reach this
  15. river is a c/f without reads here imo... I also much prefer a much smaller lead on the flop especially if there is any history or aggressive dynamic with the bb... if we lead like 40% pot we can come back over his raise small without looking so committed to the pot and hope for him to tool out if we want, and just makes decisions easier on later streets regardless...
