  • what would you do?

    so the villain was a predictable player in this tournament. bet when he had something he could win with and folded everything else. in this hand i suspected he had a flush draw.... so if my calculations were right at the time i had a 68% chance to win and he had a 32% chance to hit his flush. what do you guys think about this hand. ill let you know what he had if you havent guessed it already.

    Can you let us know what kind of tournament this was? (SnG, STT/MTT, league game, freeroll, buy-in etc). The best play will depend on the structure of the game.

      Hi,
      In a MTT I would raise preflop to 450 or 500, just calling isn't good game for me, if he calls there will be 1050 in the pot,after Cbet on the flop at about 400-500 and I would call his shove for sure, there are many weaker hands which may play that way. but there is possible set of 2's or 8's which where defending from flush draw also weaker flushes with jack or queen high.

        Raise or Shove Pre Flop
        As played
        raise , reraise shove any flop without an Ace.

        too short to be tricky

                  I would fold, it's very important to get into ITM in sng's . 10bb's are playable there. Even understanding that big stack might push on me on the bubble even with an air .

                    I don't recommend being "sneaky". There's much more value to be had by playing your hands straightforwardly. Slowplaying can put you in really tricky spots, because you haven't narrowed a villain's range by raising pre.

                    In this hand, I'd raise to 450 and call a shove (only one hand is beating you, and the next best is a 65/35 dog), but most of the time, you'll pick up the dead money, and 2.5bb will mean you're much closer to getting ITM.

                    As played, I'm folding to the flop overbet shove every single time. I have no idea how you worked out that you have 68% chance of winning if you call. With two black kings on a monotone diamond board, you're basically flipping with the nut flush draw, and you're virtually drawing dead against made flushes and sets. Hands like QJ with one diamond have a combo straight/flush draw with 47% equity against you.

                    Since the shortest stack has less than 10bb, you should NOT be taking a flip in this spot. Fold the kings and you have a much better than 50% chance of making the money.

                        Hehe. I was going to guess at AA with the nut draw. You obviously got it in bad here, but I think it's a mistake to call this shove even if you think he'd make this play with something like Jh9d, because even a "junk" hand like that is a favourite to beat you!
