  • Tough spot in micro stake mtt

    http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...047_7CF1F2D545

    Can I or should I ever fold here? Villain clearly loves his hand but you see so much bad play at low stakes. Maybe I just underestimate my opponents.

    fold pre to avoid crappy spots postflop


    as played, just a cooler flop really...hard to give a random opponent credit for solely a set here, QQ/88 unlikely since you hold blockers and would expect raises pre, 66 makes more sense, but at this level people are probably stacking off with worse than top 2 here


    idk id probably say the tip to take from this hand is that just because people limp and give you good odds to complete, the crappiness of the hand and the crappiness of being out of position vs 3 people makes it safer to just let it go pre

      Hi,Thanks for your response. You're right, Certainly what I will look to take from this hand is reducing the range I complete from the small blind with. Did think about a set of sixes especially with the sizes of his raises but just didn't feel like I could rule out him overplaying a Queen big kicker with no reads on his ability. I need a HUD.

        It's a fold pre-flop. A lot of players like to complete when there are a few limpers and try to get lucky on the flop. Do you have any reads on the villain? I know some decent players will limp behind with pocket pairs at micro stakes especially in position. When he 5-bets he is obviously in love with his hand if he is a tight player then i'd suspect a set if he is lose then i'd go with 2-pair.

          ^^ This.

          I think leading out on this flop is fine because it's a flop that we are likely to get action on given that we are 4 handed.

          I would rather complete a hand like 45s instead of the Q8o. With the Q8o we will quite often flop top pair only to be out kicked.

          I would only suggest folding this hand against very good tight aggressive players. There are no flush draw combos that he can be making a play with and I very much doubt that villain would be playing a hand like 97/910 this way so the only hand I am going to be concerned is 66 because we have blockers to 88/QQ and them hands are likely to be raising preflop anyway

          Against 90% of micro stake players I think getting it in is best. I wouldn't be surprised to see them stack off with QK/AQ and for the loosey goosey's I see them stacking off with perhaps Q10/QJ 'which is awful'.

          Cheers, Chris.
