It is $3.30 KO MTT with around 450 runners. 10mins regular blind structure and 3000 starting stack. It also has $0.50 bounty on every player.

I didn't raise preflop coz no point raising 5x they are all loose fishes they will all call. I will just bloat the pot with normal strength hand.

What to do on river? Can he check shove worst hand like straight with JT/56 or maybe worst flushes or will he always have nut flush on the river?

What should I do here, snap call?

Hi adi,

Preflop I prefer to raise to about 350 here to seize the initiative, punish the limpers for trying to sneak in with mostly garbage against which KQs plays well in position, and thin the field behind me.

Flop call and turn check I like.

River raise size is good, and I would call the shove for sure... if he's got the 1 exact hand that beats us this time, lucky timing for him, but I can easily see him showing up with smaller flushes and maybe JT as well.

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!
