  • 77 preimier league

    Is this a shove? Im card dead yet again with a vpip of 7 (LOL) my fold to steal is 100 and this guy opens the button/sb 100% in this spot ive got a short stack and ive just been dealt my best hand all game and i decide to get it in. These mtts are pretty annoying i dont just sit around waiting for premium hands and im never spewing chips getting speculative i play late position i find all the folders and i punish them for being loose pre flop. The trouble is if i dont get a opportunity to punish these players weakness i cant do a dam thing, so what am i supposed to do.

    Hi mike2198! In a cash tourney, I'm shoving this in a heartbeat... but NOT in a league game with it being early. I can either call and see if I hit a 7, and fold if I don't hit a seven or I can fold preflop and the overwhelming majority of the time, I'll fold pre. In league games I do not want to take a chance at getting an early exit. Getting a negative league point total is always something that I need to avoid and I will not be all-in unless I'm blinded in.. unless I'm absolutely sure I'm ahead, which I cannot say with 77. League games are totally different animals from normal tourneys, so the steal numbers, etc.. are something that I shouldn't even be looking at. Patience is the key in these tourneys, along with making solid value bets when I get a made hand that I know is ahead. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
