  • AQo in SB - 50c 360 man

    I don't like that I am oop. Villains are not so tight, I have bigger stack than theirs so I decide to push.

    How do you recommend to play this?

    Hi kykkylik

    I actually don't mind your huge shove because if we make a standard iso raise ( 4 - 5x ) and get called then the pot is going to be bloated and we are going to be forced to play the bloated pot out of position which isn't a great situation for us most of the time.
    Another reason why I don't mind the shove is because player 7 will often call you with hands that you dominate. Players don't like to limp fold, especially when they are short stacked.

    I also think that calling is fine ( although I do prefer a shove in this scenario because our chances of getting called by worse are very high ). Calling has it's merits, our hand strength is well disguised and it's a lower variance option.

    Cheers, Chris.
