Merge, $3 Re- Buy-in (5,000/10,000 blinds, 1,000 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 3 Players
Hero (BB): 422,998 (42.3 bb)
CO: 671,650 (67.2 bb)
Villan (BTN): 519,852 (52 bb)
Preflop: Hero is BB with T 8
BTN raises to 20,000,-Ok so i am the shortest stack at the table. We are 42bb's effective and villan has been active. I have 3 bet the villan around 3 times are so with only one fold. During the entire FT up to this point everyone had been very passive. villan recently lost a few pots after having amassed almost 900k in chips. He seemed pretty solid and somewhat spewy at times. His numbers were pretty balanced running around 23 vpip/21 pr. From observing his play my read was that villan liked to open lite from LP. I really felt that he would not play for his tournament life without a real hand. "When he opens i honestly expect him to be raise folding to my 3 bet. And i also felt he would 4 bet jam AK/AQs/99-TT type hands. I was unsure how he would play premiums like JJ+......... But being he liked to flat with made hands from what i had seen; I felt he might have played JJ/TT/99 types post flop and flat a 3 bet.
villans range for opening assumed-22+,A2s+,K2s+,Q8s+,J8s+,T8s+,96s+,87s,76s,65s,A7o+ ,A5o-A4o,K8o+,Q9o+,J9o+,T9o
Hero raises to 41,500,-So i decided to click it back 2x here,with the intention of 5 bet shoving his 4 bet if i indeed had fold equity at this point. This is my first time going over this hand, so maybe i can get some good advice for future sessions on my line here. I will say that my image up to this point has been very tight aggressive. I did however showdown ATs in a 3 way pot where i 3 bet jammed/squeezed v.s AA and AKo preflop- and got there by the river too tripple up. I did not consider this when i 3 bet here; But from the villans point of view and the fact that i had clicked it back on him once before; And then 3 bet jammed on him prior to this hand. That maybe he feels that i was not as strong as i assumed he would think i was. Im really not sure?????
BTN raises to 83,750,-villans assumed 4 bet range-66+,A8s+,A5s,K9s+,Q9s+,J9s+,T9s,ATo+,KTo+,Q9o+,J9o +,T9o So obv villan could be clicking back here much wider than what i assume?" At the time, I felt that he obv knew that i felt his initial open would be lite most of the time". So when i 3 bet and he 4 bets, i expected to see most of his 3 bet calling range as well. I also assumed he was expecting me to 3-bet him often enough; That his 4 betting range would not be a narrow as his normal 4 betting range on a shorter stack.??????
cliff notes: 103,750=At this point villan has invested 19.9% of his total stack of 519852. I was also aware of this last night and honestly felt that a shove here was going to be very,very,very close. Also v.s this range i am around 35% or worse at best when i five bet jam here and get called. But honestly imo and with the money in the pot; And the fact that villan has not seen me 5 bet ship at this stage of the tournament. What range of hands can we honestly feel that he is ahead of here???? I have 381,498K up to this point with a pot of 163,000k
Hero raises to 421,998 and is all-in,(Ok before we go any further!!!!) Does anyone really feel that i could have flat called the extra 83,000 and open shove flop??? Or check jam flop??? or ??????
