  • Top pair weak kicker

  • #2
    I'm playing The Big 2.20 tourney, I'm in the BB with a 15BB. I don't remember the details on the players and I totally played this hand incorrectly. CRTG, boket aces limps in, vitamin call SB, I check. I get top pair and I think here I either should have checked or shoved. I think that if I raised I would be pot commited so therefore it's better to shove now. I didn't have a read on either of my opponents but I think I had the SB and CRTG beat. How would you have played the hand? Is it worth shoving top pair weak kicker with a 7.5k stack to win 2.5k pot against a big stack that limped?

      I'd have made a bit of a larger bet on the flop, more in the 2/3's of the pot size. If the opp calls, then most likely, they've got you outkicked. If they call, then I'm doing what you did, check/fold on the turn since you didn't add to your hand on it.
      The only way I'd have shoved would have been on the turn, after a flop bet of 2/3's to a pot sized flop bet against a very LAGGY opponent.
