  • 2 hands from my latest sit n go


    first, there is below hand, i don't understand why we splitted the pot, he had a better kicker than me :

    *** SHOW DOWN ***
    xxx: shows [As 5c] (a pair of Aces)
    Syldsp: shows [2d Ad] (a pair of Aces)
    xxx collected 825 from pot
    Syldsp collected 825 from pot
    *** SUMMARY ***
    Total pot 1650 | Rake 0
    Board [Js Qc 3s Ah Tc]
    Seat 2: Syldsp showed [2d Ad] and won (825) with a pair of Aces
    Seat 4: x (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
    Seat 5: xx (small blind) folded on the Turn
    Seat 7: xxx (big blind) showed [As 5c] and won (825) with a pair of Aces

    Hi Syldsp!

    In the first hand, only your 5 card hand counts. Both players have AAQJT, so it's a chop.

    In the second one, with less than 10BB, I cannot play a hand without shoving, so I need to shove preflop.

      well for me first hand half of it is missing so cannot comment.. second hand as JWK24 say with less than 10 bb its a insta shove.


      • #4
        First hand you only have 5 card to make your hand as JWK24 said.

        On the second hand i also shove. King King preflop is a very strong hand. It is hard to lay it down even if an ace would come on the flop.
        You need to look at the stack sized, you barely got 10 Big Blinds left so if you bed and get a call there are at least 7.5 big blinds in the pot (your 3bb, the caller its 3bb, the small blind and the bigblind i didnt not keep antes in mind so the pot might even be bigger then)
        Given that the pot is 7.5BB and you have only 7BB on the back you can now increase your stack with 200% if you happen to call and win the hand, that would be a good gamble to take the chance that your opponent does not have a ace woulnt it?
        this is what we call being committed.

        If you keep this in mind preflop you know you just can shove your 10BB all-in with pocket kings because it is very unlikely you'll fold your hand anyway. Yet more! if your opponent holding A10o is a tight player he might not call you in the first place, you pick up the blinds and are still in the tournament.

        Edit: i didnt have the hand with me when typing this message so now i recheck its a SnG not tournament and the pot'll only 6.5BB

          Thank you for your replies !i'm glad to know that the 2nd hand was well played !

          about the first one, it helped also, i forgot that the result was made with the 5 best cards

            The second one was NOT played well.... the shove has to be initially, the first action taken preflop. The smaller preflop bet is a big mistake!
