  • Should I call?

    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    Both player's being so short chipped I figured I could very well have 2 live cards. "WilyECoyote" seemed desperate so I thought he was shoving a super wide range here all pairs , any Ace , any King any broad way's, maybe any 2 connected cards as well. "sidsh" I wasnt sure what to make of his call he was new to the table, but was so short chipped I figured he could be calling real light as well. I made the call because the pot was 55,000 and I only had to call 14,000, given pot odds and stack sizes is it worth it to gamble here?

      Getting just under 4 to 1 for a call. I would like to know what tourney this hand was in and #'s for an accurate evaluation. Had this hand been suited, I call. As it is, I lay this and find a better spot without any of the aforementioned information.

        What buyin is this tourney?

        You are flipping against most of villians ranges at best and its a good way to bleed chips.
        Play with the odds calculator that we have here and you will get a idea of what is going on.

        I find you make one or two plays like this and you are suddenly the shortstack.
        Best to let the two shorties butt heads and try to get HU with who ever wins after seeing what they went in with.

          regardless of the tournament-- calling is plus EV--- stack wont be harmed by more than 17%-- and as there is no post flop play-- how can you fold???

            This was 1 hour and 45 minutes into a $500 added 10 FPP turbo, so I was free rolling.

              answers to these ?'s would greatly help.

              What type of tourney was this in?
              Are you ITM?
              Are there any larger prize jumps you're nearing in on?

              This one's a tough one, because there are positives and minuses for both.

              If you're ITM with no larger prize jumps coming up, or in a freeroll, then you are getting 4X your $$$ and only have to put in about 2 extra BB.... it would have helped IF you had 2 live cards instead of one, or if you're suited.

              Although, it is going to cost you an extra 2BB, when you only have about 10BB left and you're basically assured that you are behind going in (even if they're calling light, they should be ahead of your 7 8 off).

              Personally, I'd probaly have folded and let them fight it out and tried to get my chips into a better spot, where I would be ahead, instead of one that I knew I was behind.

                  I click the button on the left side of the screen "FOLD". Odd's do NOT always bring me into a pot. Again, all the information I need to make a good decision isn't available. With what was given. I muck........just an answer MONK

                    I was well ITM, less than 150 players left out of over 3,000. The only money jumps were small until the final few tables.

                        Much of what has been asked. How many left? How many to ITM? How many to move up pay levels? Stuff like this?

                          That helps with wanting to call and get 4X your $$ on it. Also, if you have reads on the other players at the table and can easily get those extra chips back... that helps too.
                          If there were any larger prize jumps, etc... then just like right before being ITM, then you need to make sure you get it.

                          I'd still try to get my $$ into a better spot though (pair, two paint/ace, suited connectors or 1 gap, etc).

                          Just, be sure that when your last chips go in.... don't bubble a level (use your clock if you need to).... get every cent that you can.

                            This is one thread that I hope Dave looks at and gives his opinion, as it's one we'll all be able to learn from.

                              Indeed and agree............does the math make us do anything? Can we let this go? What are the ranges that we may want to call?
