  • Can u feel his set?

    Tournament: VIP $5K Weekly Hi guys, hand evaluation requested... How can I play that in a different way? Will you all-in with top 2, in the early phase? Can you feel his set, ...OR my stack was just too shallow to FEEL...

    I would have bet slightly bigger on the flop and turn with the pot starting out as multiway, but other than that I think you played this hand more or less fine.

    Admittedly on the turn I'd be pretty worried that my opponent had a set or less likely, 53, but he might also do this with a worse two pair, particularly A2 or A4. Even if he does have a set, we're not drawing dead.

    Also we're in the early stages of a huge-field MTT where all the money is at the top, so I'm willing to take a risk early on to try and get an early double, particularly as we've already invested half our chips into this hand.

    Therefore I'm not folding and I think getting all in is the best play, because we're pot committed if we just call.
