  • Final HU hand of MTT

    What is the correct way to play this hand, I slow played AA preflop HU mainly coz if I raise he will fold as we are both around 20BB. So he will never call light if I shove there. He wasn't doing any super maniac stuff, but I know he can't fold draws. He was playing like a semi-fish. If I 3-bet small he might call with K9o and the action would have been same bet, shove, call. But I want to know what's the best preflop move for me and then what to do on the flop? I am Heads-up. Buyin of the tournament is $4.16 and around 110 players. 1st place is $175 and 2nd place is $150. So not very huge pay-jump. In this hand I am on the BB and the opponent is on the button/SB. He min raise and I flat call AA. My stack is 148,330 (19BB) and Villain's stack is 200,000 (25BB) Blinds 4000/8000 My Hole Cards Preflop B/SB: sanjaykotak75 raised to 16000 BB: adikumar2010 called 8000 Flop cards (Pot Size: 34000) adikumar2010 checked sanjaykotak75 bet minimum 8000 adikumar2010 check-raised 132330 & is all-in sanjaykotak75 called 124330 Turn card River card sanjaykotak75 shows adikumar2010 shows Winner sanjaykotak75 amount 297460, Straight, adikumar2010 leaves seat and finishes 2nd sanjaykotak75 leaves seat and finishes 1st

    Hi Adi,

    I prefer to 3-bet this spot in general, although I will generally chose a line based off the flow of HU play with the villain, so there are times I might flat, 3b small, or 3b rip.

    Absent any game flow considerations, I would 3-bet to about 33K, if called cbet the flop like 25-ish which should drag along any made hands, draws, and some bluffs to shove over us on the flop as it looks like we are leaving ourselves room to fold.

    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. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
