  • Arg they always hit that damn ace

    I was just in the Saturday Splash - 300 left for the money only needed to double rebuy on entry and put the addon had around 170K chips , blinds were at 10K got QQ UTG - so shoved my 17BBs , some guy with around 400k chips on the button calls with AJ and he hits his aces terrible call on his part in my opinion, i could have easily had aces or him dominated with a shove from UTG but oh well, at least i lost the minimum hehe umbup:

    I think this is the wrong section, but here goes anyway :

    First off, bad beats suck, but it's kind of an "mkay" one, you're only ahead by 66/33.

    Second, you have that akward stacksize, where an open-shove is too big to be called of light, but openraising and having to play a flop where you have to fold is too much a dent in your stack

    In any case, I don't hate villains line here ;

    Knowing the micro-stakes, I open-raise what could be considered "light" UTG, It's not uncommon for me to open-raise 99+ , ATo+ KSs +UTG, and those are actually open-raises /for value/ .

    If Villain knows that from me, and villain is not a maniak i can snap-call with 99, shoving over the top of me in that spot, actually puts me in a tough situation if my open is on the lower-end of that spectrum. (lol I think i actually found a leak in my game with this analysis!) .

    In any case you've got to focus on the good :

    You got you're money in ahead, and made a +EV descision, in the long-run it'll pay off.
