  • Poor Shove in a Knockout Tournament?

    I think this is a -EV shove regardless of what he had ? It's Progressive Knockout $2.20 MTT with 10mins blind level and I am ITM. Opponent was unknown it was his first hand I thought he limped garbage so my hand will be best as he can have KJ KQ or 22-88 at best plus I have fold equity as I shoved 15BB. STATS :

    This guy is a weak player, you don't need hud stats - Limping any hand here is pretty bad no matter his holding.
    AT vs a weak players limping range is a fist pump jam with 16bb.
    You deserved to hit a T I think

      Looks a bit trappy the limp. But in a Progressive KO do you have a big bounty on your head ITM but a way to go in the tourney.

      This game is different to the Super KO 50% +50% +fee so a $2.20 it's $1 for the KO reduced prize pool. No idea how to play? Loose for a marginal KO and maybe 2 KO for your money back -- or -- the bounty goes up on your head in these progressive KOs.

      Just my blah blah, nothing about the hand. But could a villain be limping light in these games?

        I have $3.5 bounty on my head. When you bust a player you earn half of his bounty and half adds on your own head. So I Knocked out like 5 players as far as I remember.

        If I had to play this hand all over again with some fish limping and I shoved ATo. My memory says, 55% of the time I have got folds, 40% of the times they had pocket pair or QK KJ JQs,etc and 5% of the time they limped a monster. That's what happened in the past with me with the same scenario.

        I think AJ+ and 77+ is clear shove. Then why AT will be a poor shove?

          ^^ This. This is a great spot to accumulate chips. Most villains will limp/fold and you will increase the size of your stack quite significantly and when you're called you'll be called by worse hands more often than not. Super easy shove umbup: Cheers, Chris.
