  • Early flopped set in Sunday Storm, my line?

    Ok this is about the 5th or 6th hand in the Sunday Storm I believe, just wandered whether I am right to call on the turn, are my pot odds correct, worst board ever for a set but we are so deep.

        Hi herbalerv! With pocket 10's very early in a large mtt, since everyone's plenty deep enough to setmine, I'm happy calling the raise here and seeing the flop in position. The flop is both a great one and a bad one. Yes, I hit my set, but this is as coordinated a board as there can be with three consecutive spades. The first opp leads for 160 and is called by the second opp. Here is where I'm going to make a play and raise. I'll size the raise at a pot-sized raise to 730. This will help to define the opp's hands and also to give either of them a -EV draw. If either of the opps comes over the top, I'm absolutely going to be all-in here with them. Worst case, I have 7 outs to improve on the turn and 10 outs on the river if the turn doesn't help. The same type of situation on the turn. With the first opp making a small bet again, it looks like they're trying to price-in a draw. I'd pot-size raise here too. If I still had chips on the river, I'd have called. The opp just called along the whole way, so with the draws missing, they could easily be doing this with Jx or two pair, not just hands that beat me. Due to this and the large number of people that could call down light that satellited into it, play can be pretty fishy early. Yes, I could lose out here if they flopped a flush or straight, but IMO, this is a chance that I'm going to be willing to take, especially if I can get the chips in on the flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
