  • $0.50 45-Man Turbo SNG - TT vs 4-way short-stacked shoves

    This was at the early-middle stages of a turbo tournament. Was this a call I should have made? In a normal tournament, I don't think it would be, but this was a turbo, where the blinds increase quickly.

    Hi Christxof,

    It's definately a high variance spot.

    Whether calling is profitable or not really depends how loose and aggressive the 3 players are.

    I thinking folding would be ok in this spot to reduce variance. Even in a turbo you've got a decent stack and a little bit of time. On the other side of the coin you can gamble here and still have a 10BB stack left to continue with.

    If any of the players were tight I think I would fold here and look for a spot with less variance.

    Obviously best case scenario when you see the cards. But it won't always be like this.

      Thanks for the response, Andy. I can see why it would be a high variance spot, but because Turbos are high variance anyways, I wanted to maximize my chances of having a big stack.

      I didn't have a read on the biggest stack, but the first two were fairly loose {although one wasn't usually aggressive}. I do believe this would be a definite fold in a regular tournament or a deep stack, though.

        Yes, the fact that it's a turbo widens everyones ranges.
