  • medium pair pre flop against tilting / extreme lag but pick up a tag too

    this hand put me on tilt. After dropping 2 by ins shortly after this went for a bike ride now back. so history very previous hand jokerface spewed up his stack with 67s Broken flush playing the board on a AAKK6 board to me had the A. When he raised next hand i wanted to get it in with him. but when Tevesh calls having raised (playing very TAG it puts me in two minds. thoughts much appriciated Grade b

    hey B, i would probably call preflop ,but technically thats an instanst muck on the SB out of posistion against a TAG raise,he may of been isolating but i would say at least two overs.

    The joker player may of been trying a steal on atc but however when the other opp calls that smells of danger,

    Your 8s had just become weak 3 way.

      Hi Grade B.

      There is just enough moeny in the pot to risk a set mine vs a TAG who may well have a range strong enough to stack off if you flop the set. When the LAG jams, and the TAG calls, those implied odds have evaporated, and 88 becomes a muck.

      Even if the TAG were simply isolating on the LAg, far too often an over will fall without you holding a set to make it possible to continue here, and a reshove over the TAg's call is pretty risky given the size of the pot already.

      Just let this go and find a better spot in my opinion.

      hope it helps.
