  • $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP, JJ facing 3-bet?

    It is $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack.

    What should I do here shove/call/fold?

    I am not sure if the ranges is correct but if it is then 3-bettor is slightly ahead of me. But the question is if 3-bettor has AK AQ TT 99, then I am ahead and I am beat by QQ KK AA only.

    What should I do here? coz this is just more then the simple equity sitution. I think more factors has to be considered here !

    Hi adi,

    Seems like a fold to me. I mean I guess it feels hard to fold JJ on the surface, but when you consider our relative hand strength, it's really not much different than 33 here. No sample size for solid reads but, we have an EP open to 3x from a guy who's been passive in his limited sample, followed by an EP 3x 3-bet from a guy who's been tight in his limited sample. Considering he should be flatting 99/TT here instead of making a largely sized 3B, I think we are far more often up against JJ+/AK in him, plus the original raiser's range which is a lot stronger initially than the arbitrary 26.5% you've given him. Good starting hand, but terrible spot imo. We need a great starting hand to continue here. QQ+ and I'm not fist pumping QQ.

      Dave echoed my thoughts exactly, QQ would be at the bottom of my GII range here and I wouldn't even be too happy doing it with that.

      I think your UTG+1's 3Betting range is too wide for most people and the minimal stats you have for him don't do anything to dissuade me from thinking that his 3Bet range is really strong, maybe JJ+, AK
