    Calling off your stack with Small to Mid Pair in Round 1 of an MTT is not the best thing to be doing

    Yeah he had crap cards but his holdings mean nothing when your calling off 1300+ chips at a 10/20 Blind level with 77 Pre Flop

    Think I would have waited for a better spot to get him

        My thinking was to push out the weaker hands, or A rags. I was hit quite a bit last month because I allowed weaker hands than mine to get stronger, so I was going to change my strategy on that this month.

          You might've changed your strategy, but unfortunately they didn't change theirs. I've noticed that most of those types generally don't care what you raise, the more chips the better for them. I like to checkout the table for these kinds of guys before I play any hands and then try to avoid them untill I know I've got him.

          Good luck!

            hi BandTwo

            "My thinking was to push out the weaker hands"

            Then I suggest, thinking along those lines, you prob shoulda folded 77 from utg not raised it 6xBB.

            You definatlely should have folded to his push. 77 isn't very strong.
