It's MTOPS Main Event $15 with multiple Day 1's , 10k starting stack, 5 mins blind level

I have 45BB, I raised 2.5x and one player 3-bet shove from BB . What should I do

I have no idea what he has if he has a pair then I am flipping , I don't know if it's logical to flip for 45BB Rest all the he is shoving with I am ahead even if he has offsuit

STATS :


Equity / Win / Tie
44.70% 40.66% 4.04% { 22+, ATs+, KQs, AJo+, KQo }
55.31% 51.27% 4.04% { AhKh }

PS: We can see I am ahead of his range, but is it worth taking risk for 5% extra equity with my 45BB stack.

Early level, I can fold to the shove

You have plenty of time to wait for a better spot and whilst AK is a flipping hand preflop, do you need to be flipping this early?

Why go for a 50/50 spot when you have 80/20 spots ahead of you

Hi all,

I guess I'll buck the trend, I'm calling here. 42bb is a nice enough stack to continue with if we fold, but considering it's a turbo structure I don't mind taking some educated risks to accumulate chips.

What's his range to do this? Hard to say, but the educated guesses are:

-In most normal cases it's a hand the player doesn't want to see a flop with. 99-JJ, AK/AQ come to mind.

-Villain has been a hyper-LAG in the 24 hands we've seen with him, which supports a wider range imo not a tighter one. So I wouldn't rule out non-sense like small pairs, A-rag suited or the like.

I wouldn't make any wildly loose calls, but I am willing to gamble with TT+/AK here for sure.

Thankfully I did and you will not like what happened next . This showed up with off-suit.

I just called coz I don't think any sane player will shove like this with to

PS: I knew people will say to pass this spot
