  • two pair strong for shove?

  • #2
    me personally imho, i fold here everytime, unless Iam BB,
    on flop though although hard to get away from I put 1 of those 3 opponents on 7-8, 8-Q, Q-K so I would of insta folded to any bet, just my 2 cents...

      For that hand, it's way, way too early in a tourney to shove without knowing you have the best hand. Honestly, J 10 off should be an auto-muck preflop that early, as all it can do is to get you in trouble... because people will be staying in against you with any 2 cards.

      With that flop, if I was in the hand, I'd have just called and mucked to a shove or re-raise. There could already be a made straight, or at least a draw to a straight, and also a flush draw, let alone someone having a set. If you can see the other two cards cheap and another club nor K/Q/8/7 do not show up on the turn nor river, then you can make a bet (still wouldn't shove, as KQ is a hand alot of people at that level will play preflop).

      The best thing you can do is to muck that hand preflop, unless you have less than 10BB (if a PSO game, I'd muck it with even less chips).
