Hi everyone,

I gave a time on playing SNGs and decided to play now only MTTS. I was playing the $1.10 NL Holdem and this is the hand i need help:


I had 26BB, i guess at this stage it was remaining 126 players, i was at the SB and did a standard raise on that player, i had already stolen his blind once before.

He just called my raise as i expected he would do. Then it was a very good flop for me, i played that hand very agressive because i hited a pair and still had a big draw, he made a re-raise, at this point i tought: "There is no call here, it's all in or fold".

I decided to go all in with that big draw, but unfortunately he hited his weak draw.

My question here is, should i have played this hand more tight checking the flop or i did the right play?

Thank you

Bracelet Winner

Well played, unlucky result. I'm playing the hand basically the exact same way (my std open at this blind level is 2.2BB+1BB for each limper).

On the flop, I'm leading and when raised, I'm jamming.
