  • 5FPP rebuy game.$11 phase 1 satellite. Can I flat call here?

    Hi, I lost many time situation like this. My question is can I flat call here to check flop and then play ? or Reraise is good choice same like what I did?

    Hi sandip504! With AK on the button, I get a raise to 7500 in front of me. Due to the fact that I'm in position, I am going to flat here and see a flop with AK. If I raise, I'd just make a standard re-raise to 17500 and not shove. While this raise would pot commit the 7500 player, it would not make either of the blinds pot-committed. Due to this, overbet-shoving is only going to accomplish getting me value-owned (all worse hands will fold and only better will call). This way, I can get off the hand if either of the blinds comes over the top and shoves or if the board misses me. When playing a tourney, I only want to shove when the bet makes sense (pot-commits me) and I do not want to overbet shove. This is a common leak that many players have and against an informed opponent, it will totally work against them, as they only get to play a big pot if they will lose or they will take down a small pot and lose value. The line I'm taking here is to flat preflop and check/fold on any board that leaves me with ace high. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) P.S. If I was in the blinds instead of on the button, then the overwhelming majority of the time, I'll be 3-betting to 17500.
