  • Will you fold this one?

    What do you guys think , is this hand a good fold? This the level 2 of a turbo 90 SNG, and it's the second all in from this player ..i put him on a A J+ range and pair of 10s or lower I was calling but the raise from UTG made me fold

    This early in the tournament this is the right play.

    Was the villain limping any pots or making any standard raises?

    what tends to happen is a player like this gets called and ends with a monster stack and settles down or gets called and gets crippled and goes on the the next one,

      Usually it is a strong hand but i don't think he will play AA and KK same way , this bet tells me more that he has a pair or strong connected cards which do not play well post flop , and JJ plays well against this range i would put QQ on top of his range. I was ready to call if the player raising UTG was not involved .

          Hi s3n_dan,

          What were the stakes? I think in a 90man Turbo when a guy has shoved twice on tiny pots I think this has to be a call.

          I wouldn't be worried with the UTG raiser either. I think he's folding plenty of his raising range after an allin and a call.

          In a non-turbo you might wait for a lower variance spot. In Turbos we sometimes have to take smaller edges. I think you have an edge here.

            Hi Andy,

            It was a 50c buy in, he didn't shove like every hand but also limped a few
            Thanx for the help you re absolutely right my call should have folded the utg raiser. Actually i didn't get any decent hands later and this call could get me in the money, cause the blinds eat all my chips and i was not happy folding here

            The good thing is I finished 3rd on the next 1 $ buy in

              3rd is nice

              I don't think you need to see a ton of shoves to pick up a read.

              Shoving 100BBs in a tiny pot is a fishy move, someone might try once with AA cause they do get called sometimes at this level. But shoving twice the odds of both hands being premium start reducing drastically.
