    Hi danan758 Can you remember what size the blinds and antes were ? This looks like a fold to me but I can't be sure without knowing what the blinds and antes were umbup:

      I'm letting them fight it out as well and hopefully moving up a cash spot.

      Fold from me, you're very likely behind when the chips went in, even a raggy A has you beat pre.

          ok i will post whole cards and results now

          200k stack was holding AQo
          555k stack was holding A5o

          flop was 2,8,6
          turn, K
          river A

          prior to that hand i had well over 1 million chips and was asked to make a deal

          i finished the tournament in 3rd place losing K8s to the new chip leader holding KQo the very next hand
          he raised all in i called i make 3 losing calls in 3 consecutive hand

            Hi danan758! Since the stacks are 200k and 555k, I need to call 555k into a pot that will be 1.31 million (give or take due to the blinds/antes. This is why that type of information is necessary as these calculations are critical). This is 42.4%. From pokerstove, we need to then look at how much equity my hand has. With KJo vs the opp's probable shove ranges, I'll use a top 25% hand for the shorter stack and a top 10% hand for the larger stack, I get 25% equity for my KJo. The hand equity is much smaller than the pot equity, so I'm mucking KJo here, as on average I will lose 17.4% of my chips each time in this situation. Even once I know their exact hands, I would only have 37.85% equity in my KJ, which is still smaller than the 42.4% that I would have to put into the pot... so once again, it's a negative play for me to call, so I will muck. In the following hand, I would have had about 300k chips left and without further info (exact stacks, blinds, etc).. a suited king could be a shove or a fold. I don't have enough info to determine it from what was provided. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

              the tourney wasnt from pokertars thats why i cant get the hand history the site has it but i dont know how to retrieve it yet


              • #8

                well i guess thats all my fault
                its my 4th or 5th final table in a tourney of that size and i busted out earlier than i should hv on all
                on 3 occasions i started off as chip leader and didnt make top 2

                ill blame it on poor decision making and work on it in for tourneys thanks guys il fold the KJ in the future

                  On the bright side if you're getting into this position on a regular basis at least you are getting the experiance to improve.

                    You seem to be getting a little defensive - relax, we`re on your side. If you ask for opinions, that`s what you get, they may not be what you want to hear, but they are honest unbiased opinions.

                    Great learning opportunity here.
