  • School Pass Big Bang Freebuy Satellite -Tough call

    This is School Pass Big Bang Freebuy Satellite with 30 cent rebuy/addon and only 3 tickets paid. Around 264 runner. So unless I take big risks I can't end up in top 3. 1500 starting stack and 10min blind level.

    One muppet open shove his whole stack I am not sure if he is doing this with JJ+.

    I am not sure why he did such idiotic move but should I call this, what do I need minimum to call here?

    Hi adikumar2010! With 99 in the SB and facing an open-shove from UTG, this is a snap-fold. The opp has only played 7% of hands (granted it's basically no quantity), so they do know where the fold button is. IMO, the opp has QQ+, probably aces and is try to see if anyone is stupid enough to call with less. In a freeroll, unfortunately, there are probably plenty of players willing to call and double up the player.. but we do not want to be one of them. The opp is definitely costing themselves a ton of value by making a very bad play like this. If the opp was shoving every hand, then I may be tempted to call, but since this opp knows where the fold button is, it's a snap-fold with any non-premium pocket pair (QQ+ and even QQ could possibly be a fold). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament.
