  • $4 2R1A Mid Stage: Pocket Pairs vs. All-In Shoves (Two Hands)

    So, here's the setup for these hands. We're in the middle of a 2R1A rebuy, and I'm sitting with a healthy(ish) stack. The villain is a Silver Star player who has previously stated that she's won $40,000 online (I never checked; didn't really care ). Anyway, she seemed pretty good, and in the first hand she jammed the pot with a short enough stack to get me in the pot with any pair, really. I forgot to consider iso jamming, but I'm not totally sure that would have been a good idea. Bit of a foggy spot for me, so comment on that if you want. Anyway, I checked it down, and lost the hand. The next hand immediately follows this hand. Here's the reason I'm posting this (and I'm using the FTR converter because it's more convenient to use when sticking in chat). In the next hand, the villain made a speech, and jammed the pot again. This time, though, she wasn't a short stack. Her shove was for twenty big blinds. Immediately I thought of the adage saying that whenever someone makes a speech, they've got it, and the fact that the villain was jamming with a stack that was way too big to be open jamming only strengthened that read in my mind. Objectively, I had a strong hand that was better than the one that I had called with previously. But because of the size of the shove, and the suspicious nature with which it was made, I folded without much of a second thought. I pegged this scenario for later analysis, and here it is now. What do you guys think of my fold in the second hand, and how I played them overall? I'm curious what your thoughts are. Post, post, post! Thanks for reading guys, and I appreciate anyone who leaves an opinion. umbup: PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 4.4 Tournament, 350/700 Blinds 85 Ante (8 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from CO (t7811) Button (t28513) Panicky (SB) (t18356) BB (t44771) UTG (t12425) UTG+1 (t20267) Villain (MP1) (t4649) MP2 (t18113) Panicky's M: 10.61 Preflop: Panicky is SB with 4, 4 2 folds, Villain bets t4564 (All-In), 3 folds, Panicky calls t4214, BB calls t3864 Flop: (t14372) 9, 3, 3 (3 players, 1 all-in) Panicky checks, BB checks Turn: (t14372) 5 (3 players, 1 all-in) Panicky checks, BB checks River: (t14372) 5 (3 players, 1 all-in) Panicky checks, BB checks Villain said, "mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" Total pot: t14372 Results: Panicky had 4, 4 (two pair, fives and fours).
