  • 235fpp sat - facing steal with 2,6bb at bubble

    Poker Stars, $0.01 Buy-in (100/200 blinds, 40 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 3 Players Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. BTN: 2,190 (11 bb) SB: 290 (1.5 bb) Hero (BB): 520 (2.6 bb) Preflop: Hero is BB with J 6 BTN raises to 600, SB folds, Hero calls 280 and is all-in Flop: (1,180) 5 9 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in) Turn: (1,180) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in) River: (1,180) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in) Results:

    1,180 pot Final Board: 5 9 9 Q 2 BTN showed 5 K and won 1,180 (660 net) Hero showed J 6 and lost (-520 net) [/spoiler] Top 2 are paid. Because 1 villain is on 1.6bb should I fold here and hope the other shortstack gets knocked out? Really got little experience with sit n goes and tournies.

    Hi pockettones! With this being a satellite, my initial thoughts would be that I can only call here tighter since I'm not the short stack. To see what range I can call with, I need to run this thru an ICM calculator and when I set up the calculation, I'll use 50% for both first and 2nd for the prizes, since it's a satellite with 2 tickets. When the button raises enough to put the other two players in and then the SB folds, here is the range that I get for calling.... 33+ Ax+ K2s+ K3o+ Q4s+ Q6o+ J7s+ J8o+ T8s+ T9o J6o is not within this range, so I need to muck. FYI - here is the range that the button should be shoving with here, which is VERY wide. 22+ 8x+ 72s+ 73o+ 62s+ 63o+ 4x+ 32s Also, if the button folded and the SB shoves, then my range for calling is 2 blank sheets of paper... as I should be calling with every single combination of cards in the deck and should never fold. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
