  • tilt-shove or not?

    rigatoni called an open-shove from TRASURTIS the hand before with A7 and lost to KK. The very next hand I'm in the BB with AJoff, certainly playable. But rigatoni open-shoves from early position. Now I tend to be very weary of people who open-shove after losing a big pot. I tend to think they're tilting a bit and just will do whatever to win a pot. Yet I call these shoves very rarely, and in this case, not even with the AJ. Or should I have called it? -------------------------------------------------------------- keeping track of my poker semi-career:

    even when he's tilting he can still bust you with any 2 insta muck and wait for a better spot

    good fold

      You have about 65% equity at best if he has two unpaired undercards. Not enough to risk your tournament life this early. I'd still fold even if he had 72o and I knew it.

        Hi Ov3rsight, Good odds question in this hand. Preflop, a player that may be on tilt shoves almost 15BB preflop. To call this, it will take 1360 more chips into a pot that will be 2970 (45.8%). If the opp is literally playing ATC, then AJ off has 63% equity. However, the opp could be shoving a much smaller range here. Let's take for example a range of any pair, any broadway or any A (since the opp had just played A7). That lowers AJ's equity to 57%. If the opp's range is a top 12% hand (suited broadway connectors, suited aces, AQ+ or pairs), then AJ's equity is down to 45.2%.... which means that AJ is slightly behind. If I were playing this hand, I'm folding it preflop. AJ may be ahead, but with a 17 BB stack early, I would wait until I could find a better situation to get my chips into (knowing that I had the best hand, especially in position, or be the first to shove). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables umbup: John (JWK24)
