  • AJo on the bubble.

    I believe I made the right play, but what makes me uncomfortable like a splinter in your head, is the position from which he raised. What is your uptake on the matter?

    plus he made the same raise prior this hand.

    I'm guessing that three people were dealt AJ?

    Depends on the opponent. You can fold AJ having committed nothing to the pot, if they're playing tight. You're not all that short yet, really. If they like raising suited connectors and any broadway combo like KT from that spot, then sure, ship it. I tend to fold this though.

    I think that in this spot, if you think that the guy is willing to call your reraise with KJ or AT (big if, since most won't), and if you've seen the guy stealing (he's intentionally raised weak hands to get everyone to fold and add the blinds to his stack), it's an obvious call, because you have some serious equity against his range. Short of that, maybe not.

      I agree with Panicky. The read you have on this opponent will make a huge part of my decision. If they continually try to steal, then I push back, as you most likely have a made hand. If they are a calling station, then I would probably just call it and try to outplay them after the flop. If they are playing tight then I'd fold it and find a better spot to get my chips in. You don't have anything invested in the hand yet (not in blinds with no antes).... so you are not losing any chips in the hand.
      Not sure which type of tourney this is... but if it's a 50-50, where 5 cash... with only 6 left, I'd muck it, as if I lose, I don't want my chips going in without a made hand, especially with nothing invested in the hand.

        I disagree here slightly. First if they will call with KJ and AT, that only means they will call with the bottom of their range. To be profitable you need to be better than the middle of their range. So they need to be doing this with T9, and J8 really for this to start becoming profitable.

        Also, AJ is not going to play well how happy are you when you float, and an ace flops and someone C-bets into you in EP/MP?
