  • Hand from $22 Countdown

    Reads not a great read on the Villain which is my bad. He was playing around 50% of the hands but only raising 12%. At the time I thought he could have polarized his range here he has AA,KK or air and he wants to push me out. My own image was Nitty tight, so he could do either. As always happy to here your thoughts.

    When somebody with a very low PFR makes a PFR, it's usually time to get out of the way. In this case, 12 isn't terribly low, but I do like your fold a lot.

    Overall, I think you played this hand very well.

      And since when PFR is the important stat here...?

        I like the fold too.
        Not just QQ+, but any broadway A, or any A for that matter, or any pair, you're behind. I'd be looking for them to show up here with Ax or a small/mid pkt pair. If they had AA or KK, their shove loses them a ton of value here.

        I think you can find a better spot in position, to get your chips into.

            We're never going to have perfect statistical data on anyone, so we have to infer. Someone running 50/12 will not typically rejam a polarized range. It'll usually be a hand that they're comfortable showing down for all the marbles (since they're apparently not sophisticated enough to do anything else), which implies a tighter range than the top 12% of hands. PFR doesn't give us any specific usable data, but it helps us work our common sense.
