Playing the field to survive. With QQ over 20bb we can sit out and min cash, or I'm past caring = nearly 3 hours...

The moment to go for it "we have QQ" or go home. We fold, one time = result. Came 83rd/1056 runners for $2.32 in the end.

Bubble nit with 50 to bust in a cash spot now. I see so many disconnects, time banks - nearly went on tilt and stacked off.

Good to find a fold on a time bank read.

Hi Forrest,

Adikumar had a QQ hand recently where I suggested folding preflop. The basic gist is on a 25bb stack with a premium hand (JJ+/AK) I will need some extraordinary action sequence to find a preflop fold.

Here this would qualify for me IF the opener and button are tighter players. You aren't providing reeds so all I can say is this could certainly have fallen into the good disciplined fold category, but also could have been a significantly poor fold depending on reads (like if both were lags).

Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
