Hi Ace,

No one can say for sure what your opponent would have done. Unless its a satty where two are paid, three handed I am never ever folding AQ to a shove. I will shout ALL RIGHT! before calling a shove however.

I don't see anything wrong with limping here unless you are only limping monsters.

Good decisions,


Joe

Hi Holdem!

I normally don't flat with AA or KK in this situation. I try to make my standard raises to conceal my hands. In this instance, with the blinds being higher, my normal raise is to 2.5BB, so I would raise to 3000. When the opp shoves over me, there is basically no way that I'm letting go of KK here. I would put the opp on a pair or Ax, hoping not AA.

This is a situation where both players really made the correct play in my eyes (especially if KK had made a std raise, I'd have shoved or called a shove with AQ)... but one player was a bit luckier than the other.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hey Hold,

3 way Sir john is right just put a std raise so that you can just keep stealing blinds and put pressure on your opps and of course AQ will shove and you just have to call

tough luck

Holdem the chances I fold AQ 3 handed in a 45 man SNG are slim and none.

And slim is on his way out of town. In a hearse. 'Cause I hit him in the head with a brick.

Run better next time is all you can do here. That and RAISE the KK pre. Three handed you'll get called and even 4x bet/shoved by a way wider range of hands than AQ.
