  1. The point is: the majority of hands their reraising you with have you dominated. I'm going to assume any hands they reraise here with, they would call with. So instead of bubbling, you lose 3000. Obviously most of the time, I'm assuming I take the pot down uncontested, making the raise to 3000 still an +EV play.
  2. That pretty much sums up my thoughts on playing this after I played it lol. Just curious if anyone advocates folding here?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t1200 (7 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FCP)MP1 (t9138)MP2 (t17851)CO (t10165)Hero (t12069)SB (t13621)BB (t14656)UTG (t16746)Preflop: Hero is Button with A , 3 . 4 folds, Hero ?SB and BB are both TAG. I believe I was 11th out of 20 at this point, with about 11 - 12 people left in the tourney at or about my stack level. 18 Pay, real money is top 3 though.
  4. Preflop: If this is a turbo, I probably shovel here. Otherwise... its tough. I might actually just flat call to avoid committing myself to the pot. As for postflop.. ugh. It depends a lot on what range I'd put villain on. This is either a shovel or c/f for me.
  5. Just wondering what you guys feel is an acceptable bubble:ITM ratio for both the 9 man's and 18 man's. I just feel like I've been bubbling the 18 mans too much lately, even though my ratio is still above 4:1 (the end-game average). Any PT stats would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
  6. Shove. The people that are in the pot behind you are likely in with lower pp's or ace-x's a majority of the time. Get it in there. Sizable pot to take down if you do, and if you are called, you're likely a favourite. If the raiser had AA or KK, bad luck, move on.
  7. I'd probably shove here as well. As played, I call here as well. He could be shoving with anything, although some of those outs your counting (Q's and A's) might not be clean since he might have a pair with an A or Q kicker. It balances out though with the likelyhood this is complete air.
  8. I think its an autopush. Why would you check to a calling station? The blinds are so high compared to the stacks, you just want to get it in there immediately with the best hand, especially if he's prone to calling.I'm assuming that he hit his flush on the turn or river?
  9. I flat call at that price. The only hands your REALLY worry about from the PFR are QQ, JJ, and AcKc. The second one could also be drawing, but its just as likely that he hit a jack and is slowplaying trips.. we're really only worried about a made full house or the three hands that dominate us: AcKc, KcJc, KcTc. I think its less likely that AcXc is in here.. but I guess its possible since the button has position and had the price preflop. IMO, your hand is live against a majority of both of their ranges to not advocate calling. I think pushing is likely to get called, so might as well peel off
  10. Was watching the leafs defence give away another game. But will try and do this next week.
  11. I think the play in the 1.75's are being kind of underestimated here lol. Agreed, the play is much looser than the higher-stake sng's, and yes, as a result the preflop raise should have been more. I think that sometimes we overestimate the other players' willing to play hands like ace-rag etc. There are quite a few donks, yes, but there's also considerably quite a few tight players. I think our REAL advantage in these turbo sng's are our ability to compensate for the increasing blind levels in late-game play, and using the principles of ICM. I'm not saying that the play isn't fairly bad, I'm j
  12. Shove preflop. Call flop (You'd be surprised how many times a non-ace turns up here).
  13. thats pretty sick. i wouldn't have the courage to post that lol.
  14. She minreraised you preflop... her own fault.

No reads at this point other than I don't recall him being too involved in any pots at this pot (about ~12 hands into final table). What range do you put villain on here?
  16. This early (first hand of a 5 table SNG), you can disregard ICM since +EV is close enough to +cEV. That being said... preflop play is so loose on the first hand of these things.. I definitely advocate going all in here and hoping you get callers. Hands like A 4 are willing to go all in preflop.. but will fold post flop if they don't hit. Get it in here and get a stack to work with. (This is only for the 1 dollar, 3 dollar ones... complete nonsense for anything with decent players).

My main concern is my lack of fold equity against the big stacks after me if I lay this down.
  19. All in. As mentioned, there's a lot of dead money in the pot if its folded around, and if this is microstakes (im assuming it is) you're often going to be called by worse aces so many times it makes the play majorly +EV.

  21. On the contrary, minraises look strong at these stakes. If ANYTHING (and I never minraise, but I'm just saying..) minraise with something weak. If it gets shown down, you can minraise something like KK or AA to mix it up. But generally... keep it simple at these stakes. Just raise your standard amount.
