  • Should I Slow Play? - Pocket 5's on the Button - $0.25c S&G

    Played on a 0.24 sng tournament was it better to slow play this ?

    Hi dduvshani!

    The first problem here is preflop. If I have a pair and want to try to hit a set, I need to have 15X the bet in my stack and every opp's stack... this is not the case here, so I cannot call as I do not have the correct odds to do so.

    In these tournaments, the ONLY time that I can slowplay is if there is not a single card in the deck that can beat me. With the bottom end of a full house, someone can always be trying to outdraw me with 9x or an overpair. Since a pot-sized bet pot-commits me (standard value bet sizing for 4+ opps).. I'd need to shove the flop.

    The big key here though is that I either need to shove or fold preflop as I do not have the correct odds to call to setmine.
