    Hi Dzeminis,

    There is not much to say with 10bb. Open shove I guess, why are you limping? Playing with less than 50bbs won't lead to good poker. So enable your client to auto top-up to 100b and start learning poker from there

      Hey there, I completely agree with Geo here on both points. When I see a guy at the table so short-stacked it's a good indication that this player is not a regular. Also by limping preflop with such a strong hand here you allowed the villain to see a free flop in the big blind and he hit the board really strong with his set. Raiser umbup:

          I'd never allow myself to get this short-stacked, as I use Auto-Rebuy. (Setting the software to do this is described in my blog.)
          If I did happen to only have 10bb, then there are 2 options for QQ UTG. (Folding is not an option with this hand)
          1. Open shove all 20c. This is somewhat unlikely to be called by worse, but may get looked up by hands like 88+ and AJs+.
          2. Make a standard raise to 3bb (6c), with the plan being to snap-call a shove, or to ship the rest in on 100% of flops.

          Slowplaying any hand is a mistake at 2NL. It misses value when you have the best hand, and allows villains to suck out for a bargain price. Don't get fancy and try limping your big hands. All you do is make it more likely that you'll lose.
