You know its bad to be reading strategy guides for 180s while playing and think about using something.
I think he folds everything but JJ+ and AK+ here and never crossed my mind that he would be stealing with 35 even if it was a min-raise.I thought me just calling preflop layed enough ground work to sell a garbage hand just like villian had..lol
When he 3bets me I feel it is him saying I dont believe you got it and going to apply pressure.
So at that point I either fold or shove since anything else would be to light.
Keep in mind I had just reg'd late for this as well,if anything it gives Bigunit something to note for next time I play him.

So I know a lot of members would not try this move and expect a lot of "WTF",but this tourney is usually a small field.It runs 260-320 players on slow nights and a chip advantage early equals a walk to the cash when ever I have doubled up early.So getting those chips would set the tone and I could use those to steal and float.


I like posting hands like this because it is not black and white and can be argued both ways.

I think personally I was a tad over aggressive.Funny part was the player tanked.
