I completely butchered this hand, 4 hours in and well..

Button had been chip leader for a while and was min raising as a matter of course was folding to a shove although had called and shown 66 against me before.

Hello,
I would just fold PF because of short stack with just 2 BB's left. But raising with just 10BB's is the most -EV anyway. If you decide to play AJ shove PF is much more better . As played C/f OTF he won't fold anything on the board like this .

Yeah I would fold pre, if I was to play the hand with 10bb it would be a shove as you cant do anything else.

Hi Grade B,

Insta-shove spot.

I don't like the min raise you only have 10BB so you can expect to be called by a worse hand often enough when you shove. When your opp has a worse hand like Ax, KJ, KQ, QJ etc you let them off the hook for 7BBs when they wiff the flop and fold to your shove.

But the most important thing that makes this a shove for me is the fold equity. After the button raises. With your hand I think the most profitable outcome is when the button folds. You gain 10k chips a 40% stack increase 100% of the time when the shove gets through. You would need to be a better than a 61% favourite versus his range to get a better return than that. I don't think you'll ever be that far ahead with AJo vs the hands he's calling your 3bet with.

Keep it simple.
Andy
