    AA_Rounder_KK???

    It's a rush tournament, so no reads. I know I'm not folding but I need help with 3-bet size. Also, how bad is a shove in this situation?

    Thank you for your input. I will post results later.

    Edit* I would also like to know some strategies for rush tournaments. Any advice appreciated.

  2. AK with 30bb left is not a shove, its a call or reraise preflop.

    Your facing a player with 72bb, 16bb and 103bb.

    You can possible get the 72bb and 103bbb player to fold and wait for better spots, but the 16bb player if hes holding something semi decent hes shove all in and with AK its an easy call imo.

    Can anyone correct me on my views with this break down?

  3. I just shove. If this were a high stakes tourney I'd probably just 3 bet to like 1550 or something as I wouldn't expect players ever to flat. In a $5 tourney you may even get flatted by both players making flop play more awkward. I think a shove still gets call by like 88+, aj+, and maybe even some random other hands. If you decided to make it like 1550ish and get called in 1 spot I'd be bet/calling or shoving 100% of flops, if called in 2 spots I'd consider chk/folding some of the worse boards.

    Thanks for the input. I thought a shove would be good play because I can possibly get the big stacks to fold and be heads up with the short stack. The short stack limped, so I really dont put him on a very good hand, possibly KJ, KQ, J10, Q10 ect. If I shove they will probally call with any of those hands. At worst I thought I might be in a race and I was willing to race for a big stack here.
