  • The hot $0.55

    Early days in this tournament so no real read on the villain.

    Hi xTrey815! With JJ, when it folds to me, I need to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (240). I do not want to open-limp if it folds to me. If someone limps in front of me, I can limp hands behind, but not open-limp. I then get a call and a raise from the BB to 320. Due to my stack size, calling here is not an option. If I want to call to setmine, I need to have 15X the bet in both my stack and the opp's stack and I don't have that much. Due to this, I need to shove or fold. If the opp is loose, I'll shove. If the opp is tight, then I'll fold. If I saw the flop with chips left (which I would not), when the opp bets the flop with an overcard, I need to fold. It's 34.4% pot equity vs only 4% hand equity for my two outs. The keys here are to raise initially, then shove or fold to the BB's raise. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Thanks as always John, really no clue why i limped in with Js, and my post flop play was atrocious which i realised on the turn and saved what chips i did have left!
