No point in risking 2/3 of your stack against what will be at best a flip - good fold.

Hi PLaws62!

The first thing to remember, since it's a league game, the goal is to survive as long as possible to get league points.

Depending on how the table is playing, I could either muck 77 immediately here or more likely, I'd make a std opening raise (2.5BB for this level). Is a min-raise here standard for you? If so then it's ok, if not, then I'd recommend making standard raises. If the min-raise is not standard, then the opps could pick up on that and make a play accordingly.

A mid position player now shoves and it's folded back to us. With this being a league game, I'm not going to risk 2/3 of my remaining stack on a hand that is either in a race or dominated, especially before the bubble. Therefore, I'm going to muck to the shove and look for a better spot to get my chips into, where I'd be ahead or the favorite in a hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)
