  • Big 8.8 - AJ OTB facing 6bb All In from EP

    Hi PSO-ers, What do you think of this spot? Easy call with 1.46:1 odds with 43% equity against {66+, AT+, KQ}, or do we have to be worried about the blinds? Shove ourselves or call and fold to a shove?

    I don't believe it's an easy call without knowing if it's after the bubble or not, since usually players get way more loose after the bubble has burst.
    As for the call or shove dilemma it's usually better to just shove than call, since we are probably never folding to a reshove from any of the blinds.
    And we sometimes make better hands to fold like medium pairs, or maybe AQo if blinds are supertight.
    Overall I think AJs is a shove but AJo is close and villain has to be shoving somehow loose to make it profitable.

        Shove. The only time I really want to be calling a shove and folding to reshove is when I have far more chips behind after call (you only have ~11bb to start) and think villains would not punish me for playing AQ/99 type hands face up. Do not want to be putting in half my stack here with the idea of folding, we have to call if the bb shoves anyhoo. umbup: + unless bubble looms or villain is nitty expect them to shove a wider range than you cite.

          Calling isn't option you are right, even with QQ+, just writing mistake

            Hi Geo! From the button, we get a shove from MP with 5BB. I'm within the call range for the shove, as I want to call with about 23% of hands and AJo is within this (A2s+, A7o+ is the range for having an ace). However, I really don't want to be in a multi-way pot as AJo plays well against the short-stack shover's range, but plays nowhere near as well in a multi-way pot. Due to this, I'm reshoving to isolate the shove from MP, as I do NOT want to call here and invite the blinds into a multi-way pot with the right odds nor induce a re-shove from them. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: john (JWK24)
