  1. I like following the (3 + # of limpers)*BB rule here. If the stacks were bigger it would likely be 4 + limpers. As played, I call here every time unless you have a specific read or playing higher limits (and even then I'm not sure, but I'm a low stakes player lol)
  2. I might actually check the river and call any bet instead. He's definitely not folding a hand that beats you when you shove, but he will fold a lot of hands that you have beat. If you check, you give him the opportunity to take a stab at a lot of missed draws, pairs, etc. Maybe you miss a bit of value here from a hand like AA, KK, QQ, etc., but I think you'll pick up more value from weaker hands if you check the river.
  3. Fold. I don't think I even touch KJo unless im in the CO or Button

  5. I don't really mind just calling pf. I really think you need to lead out on the flop though,because its fairly draw heavy and you can't afford to give up a turn card. As played, check behind the river. I don't want to be raised and forced to make a decision for a lot of chips here with only top pair. Give him the opportunity to maybe bluff with a weaker hand and call any reasonable sized bets (imo, anything under pot size).
  6. I'd throw in a pot-sized bet on the turn, or possibly just shovel if you're sure you are ahead. It's more of a value vs. risk. As played, I fold the river. Trust your reads. When you bet 2/3 of the pot and he calls, he's actually calling with bad odds to complete the flush. By calling the river, you actually make that call a much less bad one because you gave him implied odds. If you get unlucky, minimize your losses and get out.
  7. I agree. Bet 800 - 1000. If a non-scare card comes on turn I'm definitely pushing this hand hard.
  8. Here's why I'm against minraising: with a big hand, you are trying to win a big pot. If you allow a weaker hand into a pot by minraising, you're either going to win a slightly bigger pot, or lose a huge pot.The advantage of minraising is that you allow many hands that you beat into the pot. If they flop TP or 2nd pair with Jacks or lower, you will win considerably more then you would have otherwise.The disadvantage of minraising is that you allow many hands that you beat into the pot. A king or ace will hit the flop approx 42% of the time here [ (42/50)*(41/49)*(40/48) ]. In addition, he may h
  9. On the topic of minraises: I usually play small-stake SNG's, tourneys (3.25 /45s, 4.40s, $5 STT, etc.). Whenever someone minraises from EP, I automatically slow down because 90% of the time (I don't think im exaggerating here) its AA, KK, QQ, sometimes even JJ, or AK. If you're minraising consistently with marginal hands as well as monsters, itll throw people like me off, but majority of people it just gives them incentive to call. That being said, I don't MIND the minraise from the button/CO, but please don't ever do this from EP. I'd prefer a 2.5/3x raise here instead.As played, shovel.
  10. I autocall. If you are actually going to fold here in fear of bubbling, you shouldn't have raised PF in the first place. This is almost a perfect flop for you. Secondly, if you fold here, you are only left with ~ 1.7k. I'd easily put you at a 65/35 favourite (probably even higher) against his range here. Having the chance to move up to 4k and secure yourself a good shot at winning this thing is more than worth the risk of bubbling here, especially since you're fairly short here as well, and will be in bad shape if the shorty doubles up.
  11. you opened for 3k with blinds at 1-2k?I'm not really nitpicking.. just yeah... i guess i am nitpicking lol. I still stand on calling the push regardless.
  12. Did you raise the button PF or just limp? If you opened, the pot should be more like 10 -14k right? Anyways, I like the raise on the flop, and I don't see how I get away from this. You have the odds to call on the turn against most of what he could be holding, and 99 was definitely on the high end of his holdings. I'm calling here everytime though
  13. I would repop a bit higher on the river.. maybe to 250/300 (I personally always try to raise at least 3x the previous bet when the blinds are relatively small).Turn I'd probably go for 2/3 pot, since I think A-x will call anyways.River I don't mind as a value bet, but personally I'd bet a bit stronger to get more value, since I put him on either 1st or 2nd pair (which means he'll likely call anyways), a busted draw (meaning he'll fold or bluff regardless), or a made hand (you'll get pushed into anyways).As played, I probably call unless you figure him for a complete nit. And even then, hard t
  14. I think that if you had even one more chip than SB, this is an easy call (guaranteeing yourself 2nd if either you or the big stack wins). I agree with everyone else though: if you don't win this hand, you're out in 3rd and as a result his is probably a close fold. IF the big stack had been raising with ATC a lot of hands, I might be tempted to put it in all there because I have to figure we're ahead of the short stack's range.

  16. All I have to say is that was a very intelligent and well thought out post Obey. Thanks for the read.I guess this is sort of vague and general, but I feel like I tend to go against my better judgment at times in favour of "what I should be doing" in certain situations. How much does instinct or gut influence a decision that is completely swayed towards fold or call "mathematically". Are you completely dependent on your gut as to say that if you logically went through the process, and figured you would win a hand 40 - 45% of the time given 3:1 odds to call on the river putting the villain on a
  17. Was 5 a standard raise?This looks or feels like an overpair with one spade or something. His range is fairly large here though and could easily include something like AsKs, AsQs, higher set etc.If you were planning on folding to a push though, I probably would have checked behind on the turn and called any non-spade river (within reason) and value bet if checked to me. That might not be the best way to extract value from your set though in most cases, so bleh lol.
  18. I love 6-handed SNG's just because I feel the biggest advantage I have over typical donks who play these things are post flop play. 6-handed gives me many more opportunities to exploit this. I also tend to notice that people tighten up a lot 3 or 4 handed and my aggressiveness tends to allow me to build a stack fairly quickly. Just perseonal preference though. Playing 9-handed is much more straight forward though in terms of decision-making, etc.
  19. I dont mind checking behind actually and trapping him on the turn. I guess it depends on how likely he would call a push with something like AT or AJ, and whether or not you think hes likely to bet out if you check the turn.Without any real reads, I probably lean towards just pushing the flop here.
  20. k shipped gl. pm me whenever you jump into one.. ill probably be around studying or something. nite (morning?) everyone
