  • OSL - Defending my BB with 67o

    Hi,

    This is a shameless plug for my entry into the Pokerstars Coaching promo, but I would like some feedback on this hand I played in the OSL and won.

    Should I have just folded pre?

        Hi IBNash! When playing league games, especially the OSL, I need to play extremely tight, which means not taking chances. Every chip that I save can make me last longer and get me more and more league points... the one and only goal in these. With 67o from the BB, I get a raise and a call in front of me. I need to muck this hand preflop. I need to save the chips to last longer. If I saw the flop (which I would not), I flop a gutshot on a paired board with a flush draw. There is a bet and a raise in front of me, so I would need to call 4800 into a pot that will be 20760 (23.1%). For me to call, my outs need to have more equity than this. Best case, I have 4 outs and from the rule of 4 and 2, these outs are worth 8% equity to the turn.. IF.. the outs are even good. Even if I hit my straight, I can easily be beat by a flush or full house. Since my hand is nowhere near worth more than my pot equity, this is an easy fold in a cash tourney.. let alone in a skill league game where I cannot take chances at al (especially late in the month when I'll lose more points for doing so). I also do not want to be all-in (unless I'm blinded in), in a league game unless I'm absolutely positive that I will have the best hand after all 5 cards are on the board. This is definitely not the case here, as while I do have a straight, I do not have the nuts. The best decision that I can make in this hand is to muck marginal hands preflop, especially when out of position and am facing a raise. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
