  • In the OSL

    In the OSL the villain (original all in) had shown down J8 suited, AJo , 22 and AKo (he went all in with the AK and the AJ) he won with the AK and the 22 in all he played in seven of the hands dealt so far, 16 I think. on the limited read, I felt that my 66 was in front of him, but should I have folded pre to the shove ?

    I am playing looser in the OSL this month - but I would fold this preflop. Most of the hands you have seen from V2 you are never far ahead of. If V1 knows this players range expects an all-in and raises UTG then 66 is not often ahead of both hands - will be facing better pairs at worst and 3 or 4 overcards at best. V9 might call too and bust us. I would get in on the flop though. Having already doubled up and having both opps covered might make me want to play the 66 - but not at the price we have to call preflop with the UTG raiser so likely to come along. Ed

      Hi Bill! With 66 on the button, I get an abnormally large raise to 300, then a shove. Even if this were a cash tourney I'm mucking 66 here... let alone a league game where I'm getting negative points if I lose. To call a shove this early in the tourney preflop, I need to have QQ+. With anything less, the risk isn't worth the reward. The other thing that I have to look at here is that I cannot call. If I play the hand, I need to re-shove to isolate. By calling, I'm trying to setmine and none of us have anywhere near 15X the bet in our stacks, so due to the stacks being too small, calling to setmine is out of the question for me. If for some reason I saw the flop with chips left (which I never would as I need to shove or fold pre).. then I'm absolutely shoving the flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
