  • KJ Suited - Middle Position - Tournament Hand

    Played on a 0.25$ sit and go

    Are there any stats/notes on the villian? As played, I don't like this move. Without knowing anything about villian, you are either in a coin-flip at best, or way behind at worst. Considering you have close to 20 BB, I would like to think there would be a better spot for this play.

      I agree with MRSWAT.

      If the opp is loose, I'm at best in a coin flip. If the opp is a normal to tighter opp, then KJs is crushed here.

      If it was folded to me, I'd make a standard raise, but with a raise in front of me, it's nowhere near a strong enough hand to play and I need to fold.

      In the quarter sng's (I've played a large number of the 45's and 90's), I do not want to be taking unnecessary flips or worse. There is enough bad play that I need to be patient and then play hands where I will be ahead (which will happen due to the opp's bad plays).

      The key here is to snap-fold marginal hands to a raise. If I had KK or AK then I'd raise, but all other kings need to be folded.
