  • how do u play this... advice needed

    How do you play this? and what's my problem? Call the Big Raise with only top pair? At that moment (the re-raise), i was thinking that if i didn't win this hand, my stack is far behind.... Advice needed, Thank you!

    Hi WiCD! What type of tourney was this from and what reads did you have on the opps? Were they playing a large number of hands.. yes.. or no? I'll assume a standard cash tourney (if it's not, then my reply will be different). With 2 limpers, I'm sitting on a 17BB stack in the BB. I want to raise here and the key is the sizing. A standard raise would be to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper (4500). However, this bet is close to pot-committing me and I don't want to have to fold if I put this many chips into the pot. Due to this, since I have a hand with value, I'm going to shove. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
