  • AQo in position but facing a standard raise

    Need help with tourny play This was from the big 4.40 late reg still on for 45 mins so i'd rather not go broke but then again I've only had 2 other playable hands. We have nearly doubled the 15k guarantee almeria246 is an agressive player playing loose with his big satck last time raised on button I flated and almeria246 pushed all in. However in last orbit or so i've noticed, he has slowed up a bit. rest of table seems quite tight and unless bb is sitting on a monster i think they will fold. anyway whats your move here. Grade b

    Hi Grade b! With this being very early in an MTT, I"m going to err on the conservative side and fold here. There is a known aggro behind me left to act, along with the 2 limps and the BB. This pot could easily get out of control preflop and I'd want to either have a better hand, or be isolated against one opp. With 50BB in my stack, I'm going to look for a better situation. I'd much rather be card dead in the beginning of a tourney too... before the blinds/antes and pot sizes get much larger. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Hey Grade b,
      If I was in your position, I would flat call.

      Wait for the big stack to shove, if every body else folds to his shove I am calling him.
      Happy to take his chips off him.

      If one of the tight players shove I fold.

      If the flop comes and I miss, I just fold.

      You have to collect chips to win, Why wait to blind down and shove with worse?

      Just my thoughts,

      I am starting to like playing against bullys.

        ty both for your thoughts,

        i have started to notice my Tournament play is definably lacking which is a bit of a bummer with the micro millions coming up.

        I shall be posting more spots and any advice will be appreciated, and is slowly being digested.
