  • 100K Privilage Freeroll Late Stages

    Hi Guys, This evening, while playing the the 100k privilage freeroll I played this hand late into the tournament.
    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    I believe I arrived at this table 11 hands prior and had not played a hand yet. So My image was tight. I know I made the right call mathematically preflop and stongly believe my flop shub allin was the right play but would like others opinions on it. I dont see how I could play the flop any differently, considering that if I checked I would almost certainly face a healthy C-bet. The one place I was way off is putting him on high card that did not connect with the flop in any way. I briefly entertained the idea he might have somekind of a pair but it wasnt likely. I may have had a better read on him had I been at that table longer but I had recently been moved there.

    Obviously you were unlucky the way the cards ran out but you really can't call in that spot pre flop. Was a big mistake on your part. As played I think a check raise all in OTF is better than a straight up shove, check and then soul read based on his bet whether to shove or fold. As played though unlucky. Fold pre flop next time. You are short on chips in a fast paced format and so every chip is precious. 10 7 off suit here is rarely the best hand and you are often going to get in tougher spots than this post flop or just miss completely. Fold and look for a spot to get it in soon with a stronger hand.

      Clearly I would rarely be holding the better hand here but as I was getting about 5:1 on my money I decided to gamble.

      So I guess this is a situation where calling although mathematically correct, was poor tournament strategy?

      As for my shub on the flop,... my thinking was that a check raise would definately not work as he would be getting better pot odds and would certainly call. So the only way to get some fold equity was going all in.


      Btw, did I post this in the right forum? And how do I add that "requests hand evaluation" to the tittle I see on other threads?

      Thanks

          Hi Sle4zy_E! With 10BB behind, I get a min-raise in front of me. Due to my stack size, I either need to shove or fold and with a marginal-at-best hand in T7o, I'm going to fold and shove the next hand that I want to be involved in. As played, I'm shoving the flop here everytime as any lead bet pot-commits me (a standard postflop bet against one opp is 1/2 pot and this is over 1/3 of my stack). I'm short on chips and have a pair on a board that missed the overwhelming majority of the opp's range. The key though is to shove or fold this one preflop, as I'm too short to call. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
