Am I over thinking a call here?
According to ICM, you should be calling off way tighter here if we are in the small and the flatter on the button has the stack that you had. I.E. UTG shoves 6672, button has your stack of 14485 and flats, you are in the small blind with 5926; your range should be TT+ AKs. The reason for that is the fact that the button should only be flatting 88+ AJs+ AQo+ as an initial caller in position.

Am I over thinking a call here?
He's in middle position, I think I would tighten the range to AQs+ AKo and 99+. If the hero is in the big blind, I could see a call depending on other stats as well.

Revolution (Cake & Lock) Deposit & Cashout Thread
Mine from Lock seemed pretty sketchy as my sender was some random person from Nicaragua, but had no problems and the money stayed. Gotta take a chance, might lose the money either way with the state of online poker, right' I had money on Cake from pre-Black Friday so it's all a freeroll in my eyes.

Too Deep to Shove Ak?
If he is fairly competent, he's going to be raising a very wide range preflop with 40 biebers in a 3x-turbo. Because of that fact that it's a small buy-in, I would tax him more often to see flops. I feel that would be the most +cEV play. Any other thoughts'

55 Pre, 20 BB, In pos, early in MTT, against TP weak open, Reship or not?
It's going to cost him about 40% of his stack to call, the 2x raise definitely seems suspicious, but it has to be +cEV to shove here. You are getting a 25%+ increase to your stack (risk 1625 to win 440) by shoving. The pot size is going to be 2065, so he isn't getting the best odds and his calling range should be in the top 10-15%. Flatting is definitely out of the question unless you have some sort of read on him playing post-flop and betting him off of particular textures. You can also make a case for folding pre-flop if you think you can find a better spot or feel crushed. But ...

Weird spot against random who plays passive aggresive
I had only been at the table for a few hands, just won a nice pot valuing the river with 2nd pair and got called by worse. I think my flop play is pretty ideal, maybe I need to raise more.

3 hands, 3 handed, 3 calls?
For the first hand, I would agree with just shove. If you are raising preflop, you should be planning to call off your 16-17 bbs, otherwise, why even do it. For the 2nd and 3rd hands, in blind versus blind situations 3-handed deep in a tournament, calling with those kinds of hands is fairly standard. Based on ICM and stack sizes and approximate payouts, this kind of calling range is acceptable (note: this is fairly wide, adjust according to opponents tendencies): [55+ A2s+ A5o+ K8s+ K9o+ QTs+ QJo]. I would deem those "snap call, fist pump, high five the monitor" calls. Not much thought for ...

Feedback about the Lock Poker move to the Revolution Network
The title says it all. I have emailed Lock support and they have been beating around the bush about it. I have the same screen name and email address on both sites. The article on the home page says that everything is fine unless your screen names are the same, but with no way to fix it. Does anyone have an idea of what I am supposed to do'

KJo 23bbs facing BTN MR + flopped TP - planning & options.
That tiny 3bet definitely smells strength even though it's from the button. In a 6max game, I'm never folding KJo preflop if it's folded to me (Mercurial is effectively in the HJ here). As for post-flop, he bets 2000 into ~3300, which seems like a weird bet. If I was you, I would've bet something like 900-1300 as a blocker bet to see if you can peel a good turn card or force him to raise for more information. Kinda smells like TT+, AKo, AQs+, and in this case you would be beating a decent amount of his range.

Push/Fold Nash Equilibrium
If you want a better idea of ranges for each particular situation, you can use the Nash Calculator. It'll give you ranges based on chip stacks, size of the blinds, and how many players left to act. It'll say what you should be calling and in what positions. This will take those confusing numbers out of play and make it clearer of what you should and shouldn't be playing. Hope this helps!

Are you getting away from this
As played, no way. When he flats your UTG raise from the CO, his range is ridiculously wide. Different line would be to chk/call the flop, and commit yourself on the turn with the Kh blocker for a backdoor flushdraw. Unlucky spot.

Nothing you can do about this. It would be wise to put a note on the villian saying that he's willing to put 45 BBs in with bottom 2 pair on a wet board.

$10 MTT AA utg on FD board
You should be trying to extract maximum value from this player. Raising it to like 1100-1500 is perfect because he's getting the right price to chase a FD. Re-evaluate the situation on the turn if he calls your raise and try to give him some value so he can continue to chase.

Did I play this bad?
It's not wise to get attached to a hand like that on a paired board with poor odds. By putting in a chk/raise out of position on the flop you leave yourself vulnerable on the turn even though you have a very strong drawing hand. You pretty much need to be willing to put it in on the turn, or just check/fold. The turn is really a blank for almost every hand in your range and makes it easy for your opponent to bet enough to push you off of the hand.

PLO beginner/intermediate strategy
/ has some pretty good concepts. Particularly, go to the tips part of the page and there are some really basic things that will help you not get attached to certain hands on certain boards, etc. Best to start with the basics and play more aggressive as you feel more comfortable. My #1 tip to be successful in PLO is to play position. Good luck!

MTT Sats - New Player
To add to this, being adequately rolled is 100% the real issue here. I used to have the same problems until my bankroll managment got better. My average ITM dropped to around 15%, but my ROI increased to about 35-40% over all of my sites. When you buy into a tournament, your total buy-in (including rebuys and add-ons) should be AT MOST 2% of your bankroll. This will really help your play!

what to do here
Definitely a shove. If you had something like 20 bigs, I'm raising and folding to most EP shoves. The only reason I say this is because it's pre-antes.

any good advice for this hand.
Pre antes I would say that making it like 225 UTG doesn't always warrant a call all-in. It should really be read-dependent and based on what kind of stats you have on that particular player. If you raise, and he shoves 60 bigs in, at best you are flipping. I'm putting his reshoving range at TT+, AJs+, AQo+ based on his position and the stacks that still have to act behind. I'm not sure if that's very accurate, but that's how I would play it.

Villain has been fairly loose, called me down with Ace high on a fairly dry board earlier when I missed a flush draw betting out of position. It's very early though so not too much information yet.

Hand from Day 2, WSOPC main event Harrahs AC, thoughts please
It sounds like you got a perfect double up situation. The longer he tanks, the happier you should be about snapping him off. If he ends up with AA or KK it's just a cooler.

Final table blind versus blind
The villian has been pretty tight and looks to be folding for pay jumps. I've seen him shove blind versus blind a few times, but only once did he get a call (and showed QTo). What kind of range should we be calling with here' This is a turbo by the way, so the stack sizes may seem kind of absurd. Also, should the stack size of the player to my left (the overwhelming chip leader) factor into my decision at all. Any thoughts are appreciated.
