I know I should have opened raised higher, regardless, I knew he was going to 3bet me big. I thought about it for at least 10 seconds and shoved all in.

The 3 solid players to my left knew I had folded or were pushed out of a few strong hands, so I had a feeling they were having turns pushing me around, due to me being sandwiched between solid players to my left and not so solid to my right. Therefore I knew most of the time I would be good if BB was trying to steal from me due (thought he might have Ax or ATC suited at min) to table history of me folding to 3bets and 4 bets due to stated table climate and action.


I was meant to go all in in this loose this hand?

Hi MouZeAttacK!

When it folds to me in the SB, I need to make a standard raise if I'm going to play the hand. For this blind level, a standard raise is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, so I need to bet 500. If I bet less, then the opp can play back at me with a very wide range, PROFITABLY, as I'd be giving them the correct odds to do so.

I now get 3-bet HUGE. AJ is nowhere near a strong enough hand to call a bet like this with, so I need to muck to the 3-bet. The only hands with an A that I can call a large 3-bet like this with are AA and maybe AK, but AK could even be trouble based on the opp type.

Please in the future, list what type of tourney the hands come from, as different tourney types have different strategies that need to be used.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Upon future reflection on the hand, I overreacted and showed have remembered he had shown he was a solid player and should have acted accordingly

The tournament was a 27cents turbo tournament.

I find due to these lower levels if you bet the correct optimal amount the horrible players could interpret my raise as an invitation to raise over you big or shove all in. Correct optimum amounts do not work on these type of players as they do not know what it means, therefore am left figuring how to dodge them and bet enough to get the solid players out.

That is pat of the reason why I also did not use the +1 limber bet, due to getting mental frazzled trying to find the right bet at this buy in amount.

Off tangent:
Gets frustrating when you have a plan with your cards and then the horrible players bet crazy enough to price in the solid players to enter and you are left going fold or take a stand.

the 45, 90 and MTT games at this level were my bread and butter (before black Friday). Standard bets and TAG play is what works in them. There will be a ton of bad plays/players in them and what you do not want to do is to lower yourself to their level.

Stick with standard, solid plays and you can be a consistent winner at them.
