  1. Thanks for the comments. I did indeed instapush, but it's a situation I see come up quite often in these SNG's and I've never really made my mind up whether to go for the cash or the first place. So, go for the cash in a 1 table SNG, go for the win in multi-table SNG's?

The CO has had a few opportunities to push into unopened pots from various positions on the final table, but this is the first hand they have actually played. BB made a number of loose calls earlier in the tournament when they had
  3. I wouldn't limp with the krablar and I'm not a liar. Suited K - probably KT for me, but I'd limp with any suited ace.
  4. QFT.I wouldn't be in the hand in the first place though.
  5. Interesting question and one I'm thinking about too, since I play those turbos on a similar bank roll. I prefer to have a higher bankroll for turbos than normal sngs, since the variance seems a lot worse so far, and I would ideally have about 50 buy ins. What I'm doing is multi-tabling and having one $15 and the rest $6, with the aim of building up from there.
  6. Thanks and those are the reasons I was expecting. I'm still not convinced by the push, but I'll have a play with the numbers sometime, which may well convince me. (Unfortunately my home computer disliked my play so much that it died shortly after the sng. Everyone's a critic.)The problems I have with the push are that it screams (to me at least) of a scared bet, and therefore not much of a hand, it's a $6 sng, it's early and you're pushing against the chip leader. So, you're in a loose tourney, against someone who has the stack to call you and whose calling/folding requirements you don't k
  7. Fair points all of them. I temporarily forgot the fundamentals of sng's. I hopefully won't do it again.What's the rationale behind the villain pushing the flop? (I appreciate that if he raised to 200 preflop then the pot would be bigger and so a push would be less of an overbet.) Isn't it walking into "only getting called by a hand that's beating you" territory? Thanks tskillz. Is there a list somewhere that details all these acronyms?
  8. Actuary - agreed. Given my starting stack, would you have played the hand at all and if so, how?Also, since I factored a bluff into his range, what about flat calling the flop with position and trying to take the pot away from him on the turn? I phrased my comment badly. I meant that I wanted some feedback on how you would play the villain's hand in his position.Let's get the result out of the way then. The villain did indeed have AK (AhKd in fact), hit one of their outs and was about as gracious in victory as Hellmuth is in defeat. I think that his push was terrible (which bypassed him
  9. One of my (many) problems is that I don't always think ahead enough when I'm acting. Hence, "I'll raise to find out where I am", but then not think about what I will do if they play back at me. I guess I sort of thought that I would fold if he played back at me, but then he did and the odds were good; that combined with the fact that I've seen AK played like this so many times at this level turned it into a call. If I was playing at a higher level I would have folded for the reason you give.Fair point about making a smaller raise too. It was a $6 tourney and idiots abound (I mean, look at ho
  10. I wondered the same, but assumed it was heads up.I'm surprised the villain didn't push the flop given his hand.I'd have played the whole hand differently in your shoes. As it played out though... given your read then I'd trust your instincts, but I think that a reasonable proportion of the time you are going to walk into a better hand that is either value betting or is bluffing (but is still better than you).

  12. I don't fancy checking anything. My original point was that I thought that both you and the other chap were right, but were talking about different numbers. The 8.3:1 is useless though in practice (who cares if you hit a set and only a set?) and I aways use the 7.5:1.Anyway, England have started playing their latest World Cup match and there's a beer with my name on it.
  13. Haven't got time to do the maths now, but a full house is the other bit.
  14. I fold. I think it is about 8.3:1 to flop a set, but about 7.5:1 to flop a set or better.
