  • $1.50 SnGo Ad5d in BB what should I do when facing re-raise?

    Any suggestions welcome - this is my first post, so hopefully I have managed to do it right! Villain had been limping quite a bit in the later stages having been relatively tight at earlier stages. He had also shoved A10o when he was down to 15 blinds and got lucky against AK. Thanks

    Hi fant_fox372! With A5s in the BB, when the SB limps, I'm going to make a stanard raise preflop, which for me is to 3BB+1BB for each limper at this blind level. Therefore, I will raise to 600 as Ax should be ahead of a weak limp from the SB. I flop an overcard and the nut flush draw. When the opp checks to me, I'm going to check behind here and see the turn for free. I have a draw, but do not have a made hand yet. I pair my 5 on the turn and when the opp checks to me, I'm going to make a 1/2 pot value bet here (my standard amount for having 1 opp in the pot). The opp now raises to 750 so I need to see if it makes sense to call. I will need to put 475 chips into a pot that will be 2100 (22.6%). I have 9 outs to the flush, three aces and two 5's, which is 14 outs if none of them are counterfeited. To make this a call, due to the rule of 4 and 2, each out is worth 2% to the next street, so I need to have 11 of these outs be good to make it marginal and 12 for it to be an easy call. Here, I'm expecting all of the outs to be good, so I'm calling. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Thanks John

      Wow - so I played it pretty badly then?

      I shoved at this point and the villain called - he had 2 pair, and I missed my draw, knocking me out of the tournament.
