  • Isolate or let them come?

    This is a 1.50 STT Its only hand 16 but Carry was agressive and Semi loose Snupiz tight and passive Cristiankan Nitty tight and agressive Grade B nitty and agressive But christiankan just blew nearly half his stack with (one piar maby 2 pair) giving up when 4th flush card came on river (no show down ) so could have been on tilt. I reraised to Isolate, I thought both blinds capible of folding with 2 tightest players in the pot. but with QQ should I have flatted and let them in? Grade b (note thats the american nitty to mean tight - not the europian nit to mean not got a clue)

    I like the isolation raise. The only way the blinds come along is with a real hand and if you do end up 3 or 4 handed, then you want them to all have Ax.... compromising their outs.

    Letting people come into the hand with QQ, espciallly if they're loose and will play any A or even K... would let someone else into the pot that can outdraw you with 1 card. That's what you don't want.

      Shoving and calling of the villain are pretty much going to get the same reaction at this point from the player behind you. They think they got the nuts and are throwing it in.
      Your not folding once you have called the shortstack it would just be a real hard time coming back in these with that little of chips.

      These STTs I play very tight,almost folding everything the first 30 hands.
      It cuts down on the bad beats that you can catch real easy in these.

        Your not really protecting when calling the shortstack is going to leave you crippled.

          I tend to play tight in these too, maybe not folding everything but tight.

          However this is where us beginners with less knowledge that you guys can get tripped up and confused.

          Is not folding everything not playing the odds? or more specfic ignoeing the +ev hands?

          Grade b

              Looks good to me. Rejamming looks weaker than just calling, so you can get hands like AQ, JJ, etc. to come along. Calling looks like AA/KK.
