  • Last hand in the PSO tourney

    Here is my last hand in today's PSO tourney started at 3pm, after about 15 min of play. Should I play it differently considering that it was a PSO tourney and not a regular one?

    with this being a league game, you want to avoid any chance of losing all your chips. Here's what I'd have done differently. Preflop, I'd have just called the 90 bet, instead of re-raising to 300. Without hitting the flop and having an overpair, you do need to bet something on the flop to try and see where you are... but... you don't want to push unless you are certain you have the best hand. Without seeing all 5 cards on the board, you could easily get called by 2 pair or overcards that can hit too, along with a heart draw or runner/runner for a straight, which is what happened.

      Thank you!

      Thank you!

      That was a useful comment.

      When I raised to 300 preflop, I tried to make some people to fold - without that, just with calling 90, I would almost definitely lost because Js are not good against so many people. I also thought about raising all in preflop, and in a regular tourney I might do that, but then I thought that everybody who would call 300, would call all-in as well, and decided to make a lower bet just to save some chips if the flop will be high.

      Going all-in on the flop, I hoped that both of them will fold because it seemed clear that they had nothing - not even a draw.
