  • AJ facing BB shove

    Hi what is the range to call this shove from the BB with no reads ?

    Somewhere around 88+ ATs+ AJo+

      If the opp is shoving an optimal range, our call range per HRC is 12.7%, 55+ A7s+ A9o+ KJs+ KQo

      However.. I don't see most opps anywhere near as wide as they really should be here, so when I adjust the opp's range, I get this for what our realistic call range should be here: 66+ AJs+ AQo+


      If you want to go with only 88+ for pairs.. then ATs, AJs, AJo and AQo need to be out of that range. 77 has a much higher EV than all of those except for AQo, that it is only slightly ahead of. For an example, 55 needs to be in the range before ATs or AJo.

        If it was normal speed tournament i thinked i call about 1010++ and AQs+ perhaps 99. But if i have got information BB ranges maybe wider, i call 88++ and AJs+.
