  • 55 in CO w 12.5 BB

    It's the 2.20, not too far from the bubble, I'm short-stacked, on the CO with . Villain_6 is a 13 | 3 over 31 samples. Is the push correct? Would a min-raise steal work better if I can evaluate the flop? Stats: SB: 26 | 13 FtS: -- [18 samples] BB: 72 | 0 FtS: 33.33 [31 samples]

    Hi Nataraj1! One key that is missing is a read on the blinds. When making a decision, we need to take in all available data on the opps left to act. Are either of the blinds loose? When it folds to me in the CO with 12.5BB, I should be open-shoving about 32% of hands: 22+ Ax+ K6s+ KTo+ Q8s+ QTo+ J8s+ JTo T7s+ 97s+ 87s 76s 55 is well within and toward the higher end of this range, so I’m snap-shoving against tighter opps. The only way I’d pass here and fold is if all 2 or more of the opps are loose, as I don’t want to be in a multi-way pot facing 4 or 6 overs. What I would not do is to min-open. This bet almost pot-commits me, so I can’t afford to leak these chips off… I need to shove or 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.

      Hi John,

      Good point about the blind player stats - I've added them. The Big Blind seems loose but the SB is tighter, what to do here, avoid this spot? Samples sizes are very small though.

      I also added the precision that the 13 | 3 stat is for the villain #6.

        With 2 tight and one loose behind me... I'm going with it because most likely I'll be up against 1 opp and not multiple.
