  • sunday storm on the bubble

    pretty self explanatory as to why i made the call here,this was my first time ever playing this tournament and got in on a fpp satellite so any itm finish was a bonus
    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    so i busted out at 5776th,at the start of the hand there was about 6333,with a 6300 cut off ,im not that unhappy with my call here as under 10bb will generally have a large range and hoping not to be called, anyone with a bit of experience in these tourneys feel free to let me know if i should've hung around for a better hand/oppurtunity.min cashed for $15.99

    Hi milehigh,

    You've starting the hand with close to a 9bb stack, there is probably no amount of action that could get me to fold QQ when this short, especially not a single open shove from a slightly shorter stack. You are crushing this guys shoving range, you just happened to run into the top of that range here, it happens.

      Hi milehigh! I agree with Dave. With a short stack and a premium hand, I'm going to play this here every time. Yes, it's nice to get ITM, but with a premium opportunity to pick up chips for a deeper run in the tourney, I'll take the chance here with QQ every time. Unfortunately, the hand turned into a cooler, but much more often than not, QQ is well ahead here. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        Count me in as well milehigh. You're just under 9bb's as Dave pointed out,or more to the point your M is 3.47. This can really never be a fold in this spot...ISO and to a shorter stack to boot. And you have the extra kicker that it's only 3 peeps to the bubble bursting and you just took the blinds so you have a full orbit coming. So even if you do miss here you're going to cash. So even a sort of implied odds here---you're looking at an excellent double up opportunity AND if you miss you still can complete your first objective,making the satty hit pay off---so let it fly and hope it's your turn. More often than not in this spot with that hand it will be. 100% the correct call here. Just a cooler. Grats on the cash. umbup:
