    I did not have a read on this guy. It just started with a steal and turned out in a bluff. was this a correct play?

    What kind of tourney is this from??? Different tourneys have different play styles and what works for one is not necessarily the correct play in another. Please provide this and we'll get you an answer.

        Hi booy.f! Without knowing the game, nor reads on the opps, I'm mucking this preflop. It's nowhere near worth stealing with. The only time I'd consider a steal is in a cash tourney with ultra tight opps. If I did so, then I'd need to make a standard raise to 3BB, nothing less. This situation not come up very often, probably less than 1% of the time. If this is a league type of game, the word steal should not even be in my vocabulary. If I saw the flop, then I'd need to make a 1/2 pot c-bet when it's checked to me. I do not want to bet less, as this can give the opp the right odds to try to outdraw me (if he's not ahead already). If the opp calls this, then I'm not betting a single chip on the turn/river unless my hand improves. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
