      Kinda depends how close to the money you are, but I'm generally getting it in in both spots.

        Looks like still at least several levels before the money.

        But in those spots, I'm jamming over limpers in general with 10BB.. but I'm considering if the villains have been actively limping or not, and/or if I've seen them limp fold previously, or even if I have seen them call off lightly... relative to their stacks.

        Notes like these are key.

          Hi sapines1001! What reads do you have on these players? The reason that I ask is that it's critical information that I need in order to base my decisions. Both of these are either going to be shove or fold and the determining factor for me is going to be a read on the opps. The looser the opps are, the more likely that I am to jam. If the opps are nitty, then I could easily be behind and need to fold. With these two hands, if I had to guess, the first one, the opps may be tighter (lower stacks), so I may be more inclined to fold.. but if they're small stacked due to playing a ton of hands, then I'll jam. In the second, if the opps are loose (can very easily be due to being big stacked this early), then I'm more likely to jam too. The key though is that the play needs to be made based on a read of the opps. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
