fold îî: ???
I don't want to race this early, and I do see this move with AA KK AK once and again. Easy fold right?
Might be worth the gamble in a MTT, easy fold in a sitngo. I fold both BTW cause I'm a nit.
yep easy fold, if you're confident with your play you can definitely wait for better spots than this one.
ummm, $15 multi all-in on a silly shove, better chance you're up against AQ than AA or KK, otherwise you're racing... so probably a close decision but it's 15 bucks, roll the dice and get some chips, or move on to the next one.... you want to sit around and grind that's fine, but I try to double up and get a stack to play with.
There are just way too many online poker players that are in too much of a hurry to get a boatload of chips in with AK in way too many stupid situations...
Not directed at you $50, just a generalization.
call or fold is fine
in a $15 tourney with only 1500 chips to start i insta call in that situation, the likely hood of him having AA or KK are very low and if we are racing (which really who knows because the guy who made the move is obviously a donk) and if you lose then there is a $30 tourney @ 11:00pm on stars :)
I know for most players this is probably too aggressive but i find that way too many times i am miles ahead in this situation in a lower buyin like this.
If it matters at all this is an 18 man not a 9 man.
I folded, then proceeded to get a guy to move in his TT against my AA on a AJ7 board, only to have it come 89 on the end haha. Least I KNEW I was making the right play there. Good to hear the mix of people saying fold and call, means it was closer than I first thought.
