  • Ship or Fold?

    It's on a poker room where HUD doesn't work, table was full of preflop limpers and they don't respect preflop raise. If they limp and you make it 4x they will call with there 78s, JQo, 22-99, etc.

    Level 4: 50/100.
    7 minutes blind level turbo.
    6 Handed.

    Blinds about to go 75/150 in 3-4 hands.

    My Hole Cards: Jh Qh

    Ship, sorry you didn't win the hand.

      The stack sizes dictate the correct course of action here. You're down to 7.5BB and desperately need to double up. You can't really afford to pass up opportunities to accumulate chips. If you allow yourself to get blinded down to 5BB or less, a double-up isn't going to help all that much, so you need to try get a double up when you're a bit deeper like you are now.

      The two limpers provide some extra dead money in addition to the blinds that is definitely worth trying to steal. QJs performs fairly well against a typical calling range, but if they're so loose that they might call with crap like 87o, then for me this is a clear shove.

        SB: ashishmajithia called 735
        BB: MrGolds03 raised 1320 is All-in
        UTG: badle_ki_aag folded
        MP: acejacks682 raised 2480 is All-in
        Back to SB: ashishmajithia called 1795 (Has few chips behind as he got all 3 All-in stacks covered)
