  • Permission to stack off with top pair?

    It is $3.30 KO MTT with around 450 runners. 10mins regular blind structure and 3000 starting stack. It also has $0.50 bounty on every player. Can I stack off here just with the top pair? Because I think check-shover has insane stats like maniac and he can have worst pairs and draws on this board only thing I need to worry about is 44 & 88.

    Hi adikumar2010! The first thing that I notice is that you're interested in the bounty amounts. Bounties should not be playing a part of my thought process in these tournaments. The money in them is in getting ITM and the top 3 in the tournament.... 50 cents compared to this money is totally irrelevant. With AJ and a limper preflop, I'm going to make a standard raise to try and isolate the limper. Unfortunately, this does not happen and I see a 4-way flop. I flop TPTK and when it checks to me, I'm going to make a standard value bet (for me 3/4 pot). I then get flatted by a tight/passive and shoved on by a maniac. Since the tight/passive only called, instead of raised, I'm less concerned about this player, as they can have mid pocket pairs and lesser jacks in their range (also some broadway heart combos). The maniac can have just about anything (pair or better or also a number of flush draws). Against both of these ranges, my TPTK is ahead of their ranges, so PERMISSION GRANTED to shove! If the opps had just called and I saw the turn, I would not make a follow-up turn c-bet on any card that completed a draw, 8 or 4. 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.
