Hello,

It's me again, this time an other tournament. 67 players remaining i was at 30th i guess...

Some hands before this one i made a raise from the button with JKo this guy shoved from the SB and i folded.

Then i made a raise with JJ he shoved again, with 23BB left i think i can't fold, what do you think about this hand?



Thank you again!

Hi andrelgcp!

Do you run a HUD? If so, what are his VPIP, PFR and 3-bet? If not, how many hands was this guy playing.. a lot or very few?

If the opp is loose, then I'm more likely to call off. If the opp is a normal to tight player, I'm folding and will look for a better spot when I can be the first to shove (not having to call a shove, as I need a much stronger hand to call a shove than to shove with).

The overwhelming majority of the time, I'm folding and finding a better spot.. but, if the opp is a loose maniac that shoves all the time, then I'd call.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

I think your initial raise is far too small with the size of the antes, leaves the pot odds too attractive.

You need 42% equity for it to be a definite call afterwards. Without further reads the hand he has is probably at the bottom of his range AK/AQs with 16 combos of AK and 4 of AQ which you are coin flip with, with you being a big dog to QQ, KK or AA for a total of 18. He will sometimes have worse, depending on how the action is going. Maybe play around with combinator and see what you think.

Unless you have reason to believe he is loose it's probably a fold, but not by a huge amount.

Hello guys!

Thanks for the comments. I'm not running HUD i don't know much about these softwares .

He is not a loose player but i saw him playing big pots with hands like A9, considering this and the fact that he shoved on my raise once i decided to call, i mean, everytime i get a hand this guy have a hand too? i knew that it could be hands like AQ, AK, AJ even A9.

I think it was a bad play by him... I think i would have done the same thing again, i was ahead pre flop.. it's sad but it's part of the game...

About the pre flop raise i think it was ok, i mean, i don't like to construct a big pot because it will be more difficult to fight for it on the post flop...

thank you all for your opinions!

If the opp is only playing big aces and pairs like this.. I'm folding and looking for a better spot. Yes, JJ is ahead of this one particular hand, but you can't look at it that way. Their whole range has to be taken into consideration.

I wouldn't want to call off for this many chips unless I knew that smaller connectors, smaller suited cards, smaller pairs, etc are in their range.
