  • 9-man 1,50$ SnG AKo

    Hey, I had a though decision in one of my last SnG's. I have no reads or stats (except for the 15~ hands in this SnG) on the villain. I am UTG with AKo and make a 3x raise, get called from and a short stack shoves. This is the first moment I wanna talk about, after this short stack shove should I re-raise it to maybe get the other guy out or just call like I did here? Well I decided to call and the other villain shoves his stack, at this moment I thought that he had either AK or QQ+ and slowplayed it. I dont think he was gonna shove this any time with a lesser hand then AK, so I decided to lay it down because I was not willing to risk my pretty big stack in hope to split a pot or maybe flip if he had QQ Well turned out he had AK and it would have been a split, but I still think my decision was right. Any thoughts on this hand? tao

    Yes, when the short stack shoves we should be raising. We want to raise because if we just make the call we are inviting player 8 to come along with great odds. Also when we raise the small stack shove, our hand looks very strong and we will often get player 8 to fold small/medium pairs and maybe some A10+ hands. When player 8 shoves this is an awkward spot that could have potentially been avoided had we of re raised the short stack. I think I'm going to call 75% of the time and fold 25% of the time. I would be snap calling loose bad fishy players and folding to good players because a solid winning players range here is QQ+ imo, maybe JJ+, and loose bad players will shove all sorts of medium pairs and Ax hands so it very much depends on what we think of villain 8, but if we have no reads whatsoever I am going to assume that he isn't a good player as this is a micro stake sng, so I would make the call. Cheers, Chris.
