  • Afgter the Lord Mayor's Show....

    I did really well yesterday in the PSO OSL ground my way to 53rd and actually won a whole cent. I shall be careful not to spend it all in one place. Then today. I folded some reasonable hands pre-flop in the early stages because any raise gets so many callers/3-betters during the early rounds. I waited until things calmed down a bit and I got a possible hand. Here's what happened: When I raised I was aware that there was a possibility that BB would shove over the top because that was how he had played any hand he had limped into that got raised, and I had already decided to call if he did. His previous shoves had been A rags, K rags, 53o and a lot worse. Anyhoo was it just a bad beat, should I not have entered the hand at UTG+1, any other comments?

    ***moved to more appropriate forum JWK24*** Hi Henry! It is a bad beat, as you got your chips in ahead, but you're going to lose 1 in 3 of these. In the leagues..... it's more about survival, so the key is to never go all-in unless I'm sure that I will be ahead after all 5 cards are on the board. I would have made a std raise to 400, then mucked to the shove. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        In the uniquely deviant Open Skill League, playing for points, I would never raise TT from this position with this stack size at this blind level and then fold to a shove. The chips you have are too valuable in terms of survival. If I'm not prepared to shove my hand preflop, which I am not here, it goes straight in the muck. Obviously I will think about it for approximately 18 seconds but then it is a fold. All 4 overcards are likely to be out there and so many players behind will call with any one of them you are facing real trouble unless you hit a set. If I had a bigger stack size, I might limp 100 and be prepared to fold to raises/shoves, but only if the table was very passive and I expected to see the flop cheaply often enough to set mine.
