  • KK against whale in 180 man ft

    Do you think this could be a fold in icm terms? the bb was calling everything almost a 78 /30 (vpip/pfr) , and with so short stacks i think this could be a icm fold, but not sure

    Hi scarface763! After I min-raise, I get the bigstack to raise to 11k. My first instinct here is to snap-ahove, but we'll go to an ICM calculator and see what my shove range for this spot is, as I expect it to be about JJ+/QQ+ and AK+. When I put this scenario into it, I get a shove range of only AA and KK. These are the only two hands that I should shove with here. Here is the range that I should be called by: 66+, ATs, AJo+ Normally, the shove range is much wider than the call range, but this scenario is the exact opposite. Correct play, unfortunate result. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      it helps , thanks for the help, the only doubt here is because villian is calling widely , and what adjustment i made here, but here in this spot i suspect that kk is my bottom range , and just like the irony you said.
