  • Is this right play?

    This is India Merchandise Mania Freeroll $500 prizepool around 90 player. Is my shove correct there? What can I shove in these situations in general like AQ+ and 77+ ? I am only 50mins in the game. It has 10mins regular structure. STATS:

    Hey Adikumar,

    First off I think a shove over a min raise and a call at 20bb is a bit out of order.
    AQs is a dangerous hand (suited or not) that only makes for a strong drawing hand. (AA/KK/QQ/AK are hands that dominates you)
    I would 3bet / and consider a fold to a 4 bet shove here (opp has 100% f3b but the sample is small) or even call my btn depending if the blinds are weak passive, and evaluate flop but proceeding with care.

      Hi adikumar2010! With this being a freeroll and there already being 27.6% of my stack in the pot, I think this is a great situation to squeeze and since a standard raise pot-commits me... I'm shoving. If the 2nd player would have 3-bet (they don't normally raise, so would indicate a monster hand), then I'd feel differently, but against both of their full ranges, AQs has more than enough equity to shove. I'd shove a bit wider here actually, any broadway ace, KQs, pairs (but this is 100% player dependent. it will be different against other opps) 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.
