  • AJo in Limped pot in Mid position early in SnG

    This is a 360 man 50 cent buy in Hand 17 SB is playing tight and BB is brand new to the table Villain 7 is playing loose (only 17 hands but even so)but passive. Villain 7 was why i called. So I chucked the hand into poker stove and gave the villains reasonable ranges AJo has 31% equity so is it ok this early to play this hand or with the whole tight is right that seems to be the way to play these is this a muck. or would you raise to iso villain 7 Grade b

    Hi Grade b,

    We have just short of 20bb to start with so from mp is AJo a playable hand post flop? The answer is "it depends" on what you do and as a result of that what the players actions behind you are.

    Over limping and if by magic it folds around to the sb we are in position to see a cheap flop.
    Raising, so how much of your stack are you prepared to raise and fold to a re-raise are you calling the shorty?

    I probably need some reads on the players yet to act to make a decision. So I'll be the PSO nit and go for a fold.

      Hey Grade b

      With a little less than 20 big blinds this spot becomes a bit awkward but I like to iso villain 7. My iso sizing will be less than usual because I don't want to bloat the pot, I think an iso raise of 2.5x is ok.

      Limping behind does have it's merits and we are likely to have position unless someone else limps behind us but I think we give ourselves the best chance of winning the pot by isolating villain 7 because we are light years ahead of his range.

      Cheers, Chris.
