  • Check or shove?

    It's a PSO SCOOP $3.30, 5 tickets Gtd freebuy and I am far from ITM.

    What's better play in this limping fest at my table. Shove my 22BB or check, because I think 1 guy will call for sure with his limped pocket pair in this 7-way pot. I might not have the best hand but is it a +EV shove or should I just check ?

    Hi adikumar2010! With A8s in the BB, I get 6 limps in front of me. A standard raise is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper (2125) and this is well over 1/3 of my stack, which makes me pot-committed. There is also 1975 already in the pot, which is 37.7% of my stack.. which would be great if I could take this down preflop. Three of these opps are also very tight and can easily fold, which could make a squeeze more successful. With these factors being in place. I need chips, a bet pot-commits me, if everyone folds, then I gain over 37% to my stack without a fight.... I'm shoving! Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
