I was in a play money MTT the other day and called with all my chips with Pocket TT's while on the button. The opponent had A5 which held up and I was out. Should I have not gone in or will my hand be successful most times?

Hi dtfairch!

To determine this, we'd need to know the type of tournament, where at in the tourney along with what the blinds are, everyone at the table's stack sizes and how the opps are playing.

You can use our Odds Calculator to find out how often TT will win against A5.

TT is about a 70/30 favourite.
