  • AK early phase2

    So I'm playing an $11 tournament with a 50k prize pool and i get myself in this situation. I think typically you should fold in this situation, but this player has raised me off the pot twice so I decide the only possible hand that can beat me in this situation is a set. Do you think I still should have folded, or a reraise shove is okay? and what does the math say behind it. Also, this opponent is not loose and would call a 3bb raise with a premium hand, any pair, perhaps Ax.

    The thing I'd look at is your read that the opponent pushed you off a hand twice already and that they originally limped.
    With that being the case, I'd put him on a weak A, mid suited connectors or a low pair.... I'd rule out a premium since they only limped.

    If he's got the weak A, you've got him dominated. If he's got the suited connectors in spades, you're way ahead... although they've got outs. The only hands you need to be worried about is 33 or 55 (or 24, but you said he's not loose).

    Unless my gut told me he had a set, I'm not letting go of AK in that situation and would have no problem pushing back.

      Wow, you're good, apparently he's looser than you think he had 33, so a set.


      • #4
        he wouldn't be loose unless he had 2 4.

        It's exactly what a person with 33 or 55 would do.... limp to try and see a cheap flop, then call a raise to see if they can hit a set.
