Sng Grinder Thread


Recommended Posts

First HH post...I don't have the full one, this is old and from a chat log that I found with a big time 45 man grinder.The question here is not about the A8 shove, it's pretty much the bottom of my range and I'm not worried about it, there are no regs at this table. The question I pose here is whether the BB's AK in this spot (8 handed, 7 pay) is a fold given stack sizes?Again, the A8 is irrelevant, we're playing this from BB's perspective.Table '224242391 4' 9-max Seat #8 is the buttonSeat 2: Hookjaw72 (13080 in chips) Seat 3: BBsRJReich (16378 in chips) Seat 4: 305man (4204 in chips) Seat 5: Huma Dracos (10420 in chips) Seat 6: M_a_C_a_K_87 (11658 in chips) Seat 7: x.neophyte (7580 in chips) Seat 8: SweetBiscuit (2125 in chips) Seat 9: originalbill (2055 in chips) Hookjaw72: posts the ante 50BBsRJReich: posts the ante 50305man: posts the ante 50Huma Dracos: posts the ante 50M_a_C_a_K_87: posts the ante 50x.neophyte: posts the ante 50SweetBiscuit: posts the ante 50originalbill: posts the ante 50originalbill: posts small blind 400Hookjaw72: posts big blind 800*** HOLE CARDS ***Dealt to BBsRJReich [8d Ah]BBsRJReich: raises 15528 to 16328 and is all-in305man: folds Huma Dracos: folds M_a_C_a_K_87: folds x.neophyte: folds SweetBiscuit: calls 2075 and is all-inoriginalbill: folds Hookjaw72: calls 12230 and is all-inUncalled bet (3298) returned to BBsRJReich*** FLOP *** [Tc 5d 2d]*** TURN *** [Tc 5d 2d] [9d]*** RIVER *** [Tc 5d 2d 9d] [9c]*** SHOW DOWN ***Hookjaw72: shows [Kc Ad] (a pair of Nines)BBsRJReich: shows [8d Ah] (a pair of Nines - lower kicker)Hookjaw72 collected 21910 from side potSweetBiscuit: shows [Ks Qh] (a pair of Nines - lower kicker)Hookjaw72 collected 7025 from main pot
The AK is a call. I mean, it's pretty much the nuts right, and maybe if sweetbiscuit had a stack we could argue a fold. But when shorty is calling off 2.5bb, it can be virtually anything so that really shouldn't weigh in the decision.And yes, the A8 should be discussed, I'm pretty sure you know that's horrible with a 20bb stack this far oop. (edit, is it the bubble? If so, not too bad, but still pretty wide range)

The A8 doesn't need to be discussed, I know it's not great, it's the bottom of my shove range there, it is the bubble tho. I'll tweak with my shove ranges, I'm working on a lot of it right now, but the point of the post was about the AK spot here rather than anything else.Shorty isn't stacking off anything there, if you look @ other stack sizes he has about the range I posted. AK is still borderline call/fold here, at least numbers wise. AK is only 57% against my range there as I posted anyway, and shorty's presence in the pot lowers his equity gain from 13k to 9k 30% of the time, causing enough of an ICM difference to make this closer than you'd think. If he's gaining 13k every time, it's probably a lot more blatant a call, but shorty's stack affects this situation more than you're probably looking at.Just so you know I'm not trying to tell anyone they are right or wrong, just trying to show a different viewpoint on it and give reasoning. In this specific spot I probably would have actually folded, because the more I look at it I just feel that I still have an edge with a #2 stack, and can find a better spot rather than playing for stacks with CL on the bubble. That's just me though.

You seriously are going to shove AA KK with that lead? I mean, okay if you do it consistently or are playing super lag, but I would definitely remove AA & KK from your range because it makes far more sense to standard raise from a value standpoint. So from his point of view, I'm looking at similar to your range less AA KK and maybe even QQ, but I'll leave that QQ in there. That now makes it a 60-40.As for discarding the value of the short stack, even though we have less equity in the side pot, we are still a favorite in that side pot based on ranges. And as far as the range for a 2.5bb shorty, okay, he shouldn't be any 2 wide from a range standpoint, but it should be a lot wider than the range you give. I would go as low as any suited K, suited connectors as low as T9, any A, plus what you have. I guess it depends on the player and perhaps his read on you. I'm still trying to do a custom structure in SNGPT, god that's a pain in the ass. I still think it's a +$ev call with AK.

At 45 man FTs I RARELY raise, it's either push or fold. Reason being it becomes impossible to put me on any sort of specific range, it's a great way to disguise esp. against regs, knowing I'm pushing 100% of my range and not raise/calling ever. When you're putting in 1k+ SNGs a month and these regs all have that history on you, giving them any opportunity to see you play a hand differently than the rest of your range puts a giant exploit in your game against them.As to the range of the shorty, I again point to stack sizes:Seat 2: Hookjaw72 (13080 in chips)Seat 3: BBsRJReich (16378 in chips)Seat 4: 305man (4204 in chips)Seat 5: Huma Dracos (10420 in chips)Seat 6: M_a_C_a_K_87 (11658 in chips)Seat 7: x.neophyte (7580 in chips)Seat 8: SweetBiscuit (2125 in chips)Seat 9: originalbill (2055 in chips) Given biscuit is on the button here, I don't see how his range can be as wide as you are suggesting with the other two short stacks and the amount of hands he has until he's in the blinds again. If it was him open shoving I agree, but I don't see him calling off a shove here with that wide of a range. Regardless, even against a random hand...AKo 42.20% 237,171 33,168KQs,A7-AK,22-AA 32.17% 177,660 31,799** 25.63% 150,635 7,455The ICM impact from 25% of hands is still quite a large effect in this spot.

I'd snap both hands so hard that my mouse would sound "click" fairly loud.But then again I do play $6.5s
I got berated for snapping off the A7 hand, I knew it was a solid call but just wanted to confirm it here and get some discussion going on it considering the 3rd guy's stack size being < 1/2 of mine.

Shoving AA and KK in those spots is def ok. People tend to make a lotttt of mistakes ICM-wise and on top of that you're obv always going to want to have a balanced range.

I don't know what kind of SNG this is, but with the stacks the way they are, I'm limping pre to try to flop a set, too many crap flops to get involved in a large pot with someone who is obv calling the 4x and has you covered.

What kind of tournament?Preflop can be discussed based on that, but post flop I think I'm playing the same even though there are some draws on the flop.Def call/checking turn/river.

I agree with urbz. I prob just call pre and setmine because stacks make postflop a little awkward and there's a ton of flops that hate us. The raise isn't horrible pre, it's just easier to play by not raising. As played though, I think ipits.

Just shove his raise pre. It's unexploitable and you have AJ bvb. Be happy to get that in, just win next time.

I don't see anything wrong with that. Btw, don't you guys in 45s change your raise sizes? In stts, I'd be raising like 500 in this spot. It's pretty standard for a lot of high volume regs. Just wondering if the 45s are like that in the 15-20bb stack area.

Honestly rare to have stacks like this this late, I suppose I could have gone 535/565 which are my standard two, but I got lazy.Villain had JJ, sick flop for half my stack.

Both of my posted hands were in 1.10 90-man turbos, which have been the most profitable for me. Unfortunately there are no non-turbo 90 mans right now on Stars. For the preflop 99s what is the minimum I call that spazz shove with? AA and KK obviously, and AK probably, where do AQ, QQ, JJ fit in this range?

Wee, count me in. Just returned to SnGs after a vacation playing cash NLHE, followed by cash PLO. Tourney poker will always have my heart. These days I'm playing $3.40 turbo STTs with some $3.25 45's mixed in.

Is my call as bad as I think it is?
I think so. He's not super-short, he's shoving 10BB from UTG+1. You're behind his range here. You're most likely flipping against a PP, but with 10BB yourself you don't need to call off your stack as a coinflip dog. Remote possibilities are hands like AJ or KQs, but those are offset by the hands that have you crushed (AA/KK/QQ/AK). Plus you'll have prime stealing position for the next few hands.
