  • Would you have played differently?

    Hand 53, 27man SnG. I was the big chipldr (1700+ over #2, and after losing this hand I was still #2 in chjips... The question is, would you have played this differently? When the short stack shoved, I intened on flatting him, hoping to induce LadyDi to shove over the top of me. When the guy before me flattedm, I decided otherwise, I didn't wanna play my Kings in a 4-way pot and the shove was intended to get either LadyDi, ptrck or both out of the hand. I would be happy to grab the 1k in dead money from them. Turns out we did go 4 handed, and I had everyone drawing to a 2-outer.... Life sucks sometimes...

    I think you played that hand and your thoughts on it were really accurate, again some bad luck,
    hated when the guy flipped over ak it lessened your outs. I think most players would do the shove in that spot especially with a dominant stack compared to the others who were betting into you.

      Hi Ov3rsight,

      I would shove here every time. There is already a huge pot, 2K out there to win, if we can thin the field and iso on the wide all in range that's a great result, if the other players call off with worse hands that's also a great result. No reason to get cute here imo.

        Hi Ov3rsight! I like the shove here too. KK's the 2nd best preflop hand in hold'em and I'll make a stand in this situation everytime. Unless someone has AA (unlikely, but can happen), then I'll be ahead with a shot to get to an 11.5k stack (which is plenty of chips to not only cash, but to have a very legit shot at winning. With two players having an ace, it even puts the odds more in my favor. I'm taking this chance and shoving every opportunity that I can in this situation, as the reward is well worth the risk. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
