  • right to fold?

    Was I right to fold here? No reads on villain other than stats 25/6
    The call / Raise allin just scared the hell out of me, didn't think it was worth risking half my stack at this stage in the tourney

    It's still early, you've got a decent hand, but not a monster and you'd most likely be in a 3-way pot. Against 2 random hands, you'll only win 45% of the time, if the opps have even a top 20% hand, then you only win 34% and if they have a top 10% hand, you only win 25%. I think you're alot better off mucking this and finding a better situation where you can have a monster hand or isolate one opponent.... so that you're a big favorite to win the hand, not be a favorite to lose the hand. GOOD FOLD umbup:

      After the reraise i would have folded.

      With No read on your villian might just check my option as BB.

        cheers guys, with the raise I was hoping at least one of them would fold, since at this level limpers will often fold to aggression, but yep, the reraise allin, not worth the risk

        also I was out of position against the player with the bigger stack too

          Well, it paid off!
          finished the tourney in second. Not bad considering I was small stack at start of final table
          Think my heads up and end game needs work though.. I'll check some of the training videos..

          During current Hold'em session you were dealt 147 hands and saw flop:
          - 5 out of 26 times while in big blind (19%)
          - 5 out of 25 times while in small blind (20%)
          - 8 out of 96 times in other positions (8%)
          - a total of 18 out of 147 (12%)
          Pots won at showdown - 5 of 7 (71%)
          Pots won without showdown - 16
