  • Was my play correct?

    This is a 0,25$ 45-player SITGO. Ok, I lost this hand, so obviously I want to know if I made a right decision preflop. I had a tight image, it's pretty early in the tournament. The player in the BB was regulary shoving weak Aces and any pocket pair, and I noticed that player on my left called a lot of raises with connecting cards. I was kinda surprised when he called an all-in. I just want to know did I make a correct play here? Thank you.

      Hey Metatron thanks for posting the hand and keep them coming. I have played a few of these games and generally speaking at level 2 of a micro game in early position we are just needing to fold here. We took our shot by opening our broadway but we are finding ourselves out of position. So if all 3 players would have just called then ok we can go from there but to call off a jam from someone trying to squeeze you guys! I don't like this because frankly we don't need to play here. I will say that your AQ probably plays decent against what he is squeezing with but why risk it? The plays we develop at the micro's will shape our game as we move up the ladder.
      I also notice that you started with 1800 chips by adding 20% of the starting stack in about less than 20 hands is my guess. How did they watch you accumulate your chips? What reads did they have you on? Did you show aggression and chip up with no showdowns? I'm not suggesting anything here other than many times we forget that players have reads on us too which influence why they do what they do! And................ at the $.25 level there are alot of fools too!
      In summary, open your AQ here but fold the jam and live to play another hand in position.

      Giddy Up!

        Yes, I thought so. Thank you.

        I accumulated my chips by calling an all-in of a guy with very few chips from BB with AK. And once I raised form Cut Off and C-betted with the BB Check - Folding.

          Hi Metatron,

          I too think this is a fold, and it's not really that close tbh. There's too much interest in this pot, and we will see guys shoving like this with pocket pairs and AK frequently, a range against which AQ does not play well. We are starting the hand with 60 bb's and it's very early, I agree there's no reason to stack off AQ preflop at this stage, particularly against a guy who's range strength is somewhat unknown and with other players having already shown an interest behind us as well.

            Overcalling 2 all ins with AT here is just atrocious. Hopefully you made a player note on this guy.
