  • Right play on the bubble

    This is the bubble is anyone else calling here. 90 man sng guy was a bit tight so i knew he had a made hand.

    Just unlucky there mate. My opinion unless the min cash is a big part of your bankroll. AA or KK never folding preflop. QQ or AK Very Very unlikely I would fold preflop. AQ JJ Maybe fold preflop. Good Luckumbup:

        Hey M! Really unlucky and with what the opp had it's probably going to end up the same, but I'd have done a couple things different here. For the opening bet, I'd have used a std opener (3BB+1BB for each limper) and raised to 1200. When the opp raises to 2400 from 900, then I'd want to re-raise here with AA. The re-raise amount would be to 3X their bet, or 7200... but... since I only had 7414 behind, I'd shove. Luckily, the opp raises again so that all the chips can go in, but with AA, I wouldn't want to give the opp a chance to see the flop for any less amount of chips and be able to see that they outdrew me. Regardless of it being the bubble or not, isolated against one opp, I want all the chips in with AA here every single time. A situation like this is also a good example of why bankroll management is so important. If a player is playing to min cash only, they might muck them, like in a league game where points are more important. In a cash tourney, the money is in the top 3 places and I want to take every chance that I can when a large favorite, to accumulate chips to try and win the tourney, or at worst get into the top 3. Win that hand as the 80+% favorite that you were, it's an easy top 3, if not a win. Hope this helps and that the best hand holds next time.umbup: John (JWK24)
