Hi guys,

I've started today with playing poker and i immediatly play 90 man mtt ,buy-in 1,50 dollar (15 min structure).
We were like in the middle stage in the mtt,we've lost more than half of players of the field.

Video link:http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/rep...ash=FF33D0A7B8

Blinds was 75/150,prattman1 limps utg with a stat of 22/8(vpip/pfr),Onmoa shoves all-in for 10BB (15/12),he could shove with any A-rag,77+,broadways suited and offsuit. I have QQ on the button.I mean,this is a easy/auto call,but i also wanted to isolate MeneerMeeuw.MeneerMeeuw was new at the table.I shoved all-in for around 20 BB and MeneerMeeuw called/shoved w/e.

I just want to know,did i play this hand correct or could i make any other moves?

MolaSalo !!!

Hi MolaSalo!

Honestly, I really like the way that this hand was played.

I have a limper and then a 10BB stack shove (which should be a wider range). With this action in front of me and a premium hand, QQ, I'm going to re-shove to try and isolate the 10BB shove. Unfortunately, the SB woke up with a bigger monster here.

Even if one of the blinds or the limper call my shove, it will still be a +EV play against their entire range. For example, even if the limper calls, it's not only a +EV play, but I'm a 52.2% favorite to win the hand into a pot where I have 38.3% pot equity. +13.9%EV

The overwhelming majority of the time, I'm way ahead here, but unfortunately, the SB had one of the two hands that dominate me.

Good luck at the tables.

Hi Mola Salo!

Finding +EV situations is a key when playing poker. Normally they will be small +EV situations, but larger ones like this do happen in tourneys. In the long run, by re-shoving here, it will lead to a larger expected gain over time... but unfortunately, in the short run, we will lose some of the times we're in this situation.

Jwk,is there a EV+ situation lesson that i can follow?
Or can you explain a little bit more about EV+.
I just dont know when your shove is profitable in a long run...

I just know you have to range the villian and put it in Pokerstove.When hand equity is higher than pot equity,than we are in an EV+ situation and when hand equity lower is than pot equity,then we are in a EV- situation.And if you want to know it in %,you have to calculate the difference between those 2 percentage.

Here are two videos that should help.

The first is on odds and the second is on Pokerstove.

EV is the hand equity - pot equity. The videos will help with the hand equity part.
