  • Sunday $8Million: First bust out

    42 of 175 left, 14 $11 entries, 16 prizes total.

    Fold equity? Well maybe, but the blinds are stacked.

    Loose call from big stack big blind definetly, but the small blind has a big hand.

    Classic flip, Yes!, but I'm 43 / 57, think that pot would have put me over the top.

      Hi Midashine! This play is really standard by BOTH players. With under 5BB, shoving AQ is definitely standard and is my only play. If I'm the SB, I want to re-shove to try to isolate the short stack as they should be shoving a wide range. I'd also be calling a whole lot lighter than pocket 10's, as this is at the high end of my re-shove range. Honestly, if I'm the SB, I should be re-shoving about a top 30% hand. With under 5BB, I really have no fold equity at all... it's too short. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
