Fairly deepstacked, no stats on UTG


PokerStars - $0.23+$0.02|100/200 NL (9 max) - Holdem - 9 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

Hero (BB): 4,794.00
UTG: 9,829.00
UTG+1: 2,696.00
MP: 4,855.00
MP+1: 8,143.00
LP: 6,265.00
CO: 3,007.00
BTN: 4,172.00
SB: 19,020.00

SB posts SB 100.00, Hero posts BB 200.00

Pre Flop: (300.00) Hero has J:heart: J:diamond:

UTG raises to 400.00, fold, fold, MP+1 calls 400.00, fold, fold, BTN calls 400.00, SB calls 300.00, Hero ???

Table is really loose so the callers could have anything.

Hey doomasiggy

This is a beautiful spot to shove all in, there would be 1900 in the middle so that's just under half of our stack to be won preflop or post flop.

Our reshove is for 23bb's so we have a lot of fold equity and with these games being the way they are we are very likely to be called by hands that we crush.

Even if UTG guy is ont he tighter side im still shoving all in here with great expectations. Flat calling is too weak passive and is a mistake imo.

Cheers, Chris.

Okay, so just for future reference, how wide are should we be shoving here? TT+/AQs+ or wider?

I think TT+AQ+ is decent enough here, the looser the table is playing the looser I will shove, with no reads I would be happy to shove 1010+AQ+.

Cheers, Chris.
