Hi guys, hand evaluation requested...



How can I play that in a different way?

Will you all-in with top 2, in the early phase?

Can you feel his set,
...OR
my stack was just too shallow to FEEL...

Hi,

I would have bet slightly bigger on the flop and turn with the pot starting out as multiway, but other than that I think you played this hand more or less fine.

Admittedly on the turn I'd be pretty worried that my opponent had a set or less likely, 53, but he might also do this with a worse two pair, particularly A2 or A4. Even if he does have a set, we're not drawing dead.

Also we're in the early stages of a huge-field MTT where all the money is at the top, so I'm willing to take a risk early on to try and get an early double, particularly as we've already invested half our chips into this hand.

Therefore I'm not folding and I think getting all in is the best play, because we're pot committed if we just call.
