  • AK againt nit range

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

    18 places are paid, I am 26/32. Should I still shove considering I am flipping at best against his nit range ?

    Where did this range come from?

    The opp shows an 11% PFR, which is 77+,A9s+,KTs+,QTs+,ATo+,KQo. They haven't 3-bet yet (too small of a history of hands) but even if it's half their PFR, their range is 88+,ATs+,KQs,AKo.

        It's not a standard 6% PFR range.. that's where my 88+,ATs+,KQs,AKo comes from, is putting 6% into pokerstove.

            Hi adikumar2010! If those are for the next opp, that's a great example of why to always put the replayer hand in... there's no debate or confusion about who's in the hand. With 14BB left in my stack, I get a raise from a player that is tight-passive. I'm a 47.5/52.5 underdog against this opp's raising range, AKo vs 6% in pokerstove. When looking at ranges, one thing that I don't want to do is to change the ranges to make a hand better or worse. If the opp is X%, then I need to use a standard X% range. Since I don't have a large enough stack to get ITM, I need to look for spots to pick up chips and this is one I'm not passing up. If the opp calls every time, I'm going to lose 5% of my chips on average... BUT... with this opp tight/passive, they also could fold to a shove and if they do so even a small % of the time, this turns into a +EV play. If I had enough chips to get ITM, I'd pass here against a tight/passive... but since I need chips, this is a spot that I can't pass up. 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.
