Hi danan758,

I wasn't sure which Skill League this was till I saw the guy with 32o . So I'm guessing these are both Open Skill League games.

Yes in Open League both these hands are folds, since we put maximum value on remaining in the tournament over gathering chips.

If you were going to play the 1st hand it should be as a shove, since already a ton of money in the pot and the min raise and 2 callers all have worse ranges than AQo

In the 2nd hand, entering the pot would again commit too much of our stack. On 20BB I would sit back for a while and wait still deeper to risk our position.

Patience is the key in League games!

Andy

In the Open league AQ is always a fold till you're down to 3 or 4 blinds - so many peeps call that you're almost always a dog.

When I played these, I qualified twice for the skill playing 1 tourney a day - I only played AA and maybe KK against 3-4 callers. Patience is the key, and running fairly deep consistently.
