Hi Guys,

This is early in an Ante Up tournament, have no reads. It's a strange shove on the river which could be a bluff. Should I be risking an early tournament bust with this?

It's never a bluff.
Although no hand makes real sense here, who would call both flop and turn on a paired board and decide to shove a brick river as a bluff?
And my answer is this guy:
But yeah you played it good.

Hi DasherF78,

I think you've played the hand well. I like the raise size preflop, I'm assuming this is your default. You could even pump it up a little since there is a fair amount of confusion in those AnteUp games in general on what a "normal" raise is.

The raise on the turn is kinda like a bluff when the 2nd King comes. You might be a little better off checking there. Trying to see the river and get to showdown as cheap as possible.

As played, Yes I don't think you can call on the river.


Quad Bracelet Winner
