  • Open Skill league i should have just folded

    i think we could fill up ten forums with bad beats from this tourney . the reason i flat called here is because i only needed another 400 places or so to basically ensure a top 500 finish i should have folded but unfortunately im just not good enough to fold this preflop i am glad this is the last day of the open league probably i say probably because i am just outside the 500 mark now but not everyone has enough vpp to qualify hopefully i will squeeze in if i dont i think it will be qualification through the cash qualifiers next time cant go another month of this lol i should mention this guys previous all ins 5 in a row to be exact included A2 J5 K4 84 and then this hand

    tbh, unless it's like the first few hands of the PSO Open, where a bust means a loosing points, I just jam it in preflop.

      Hi nowhereman09!

      I'm never folding there.. BUT.. I'm also NEVER limping there. I'm making a std raise to 700 then calling the all-in. Limping premium pairs is a disaster waiting to happen.

        why fold? i think this is just a badbeat but could have played it diffrently.
        Even you want to ensure a good finish for points this is a great hand to steal blinds with by going all-in thus gain more chips and last longer, and it will even allow the (fish) here to consider to fold.

        in the last theory you cant do much if hes that much of a fish he`ll go all-in whatever happens and this is a plain badbeat

        don't beg for things do it yourself or else you won't get anything

          That's one of the reason its called open league, so you can get players like that willing to give their chips to you with any two cards. Variance will come and go, don't change your play based on it.
