Middle set in Friday Challenge, tough spot?
Yeah before reading the results I am not folding here. No way. The only way you can fold is if he shows you 99 before you act. With both of them shoving your equity is good enough for the price you're getting, and I expect to be ahead here most of the time. With the SB just ripping over your bet, the BB isn't folding two pair, and may even stack off with something like 89 because the SB shove just looks so spewy, like a combo draw or something. You're just ahead here too often to fold, and when we're up against: SB: TT,A9s-A8s,97s+,A9o-A8o,97o+ BB: 99,66,A8s,T8s,97s,76s,T8o,97o,76o we have ...

do u 3 bet pre so early in a tournament?
Oh, I didn't even see that you were sb, I thought you were the button. This makes this even more a fold. I would want to be 3 betting hands like JTs, hands that play well post flop. With A6o you're not going to hit the flop often, and when you do, by 3 betting you're folding out his weaker aces, so I just don't see it as a good play.

do u 3 bet pre so early in a tournament?
I mean, in a $2.50 tournament, where I wouldn't expect players to be paying much attention, I don't think your image matters as much, and I think playing ABC poker will actually benefit you more in the long run. In this situation I wouldn't 3 bet here, and I'd just fold. In a higher buyin tournament, you can make arguments for 3 betting because you block an ace, and you want to build an image, as well as history for later...but honestly, I think your best play here is to just fold. I think the optimal strategy early in these tournaments is standard tight aggressive. Once the antes come in, ...

Soo frustrating!! Am I just running bad or just bad?? How can I tell?
Well, sounds like you need to go over some of these hands with someone who is good at poker to give you insight, and to tell you if you are actually making good decisions. Posting hand histories here is a great start to figuring that out. You can look at stats all day long, and tell yourself that you deserve to win these pots, but that is tilting in itself. Jared Tendler talks about it in his book, it's called "entitlement tilt". When you think you deserve to win something and you get mad when you don't. It's dangerous because it can put you in a constant cycle of blaming bad luck and not ...

Weird Hand: KQs on the BTN,need advice
I don't know why you decide to just call the flop bet. When he leads out for 1bb, it just screams weakness. I would raise this bet with just about any hand that I raised the button with because he folds so often. If somehow he actually does have a hand he wants to get all in, our equity is good against pretty much any hand that he will have. Don't over think this spot and just play aggressive.

$3.30 MTT line check
I have 45 combos of an 8, call it 42 because he probably bets J8s on the flop. A8 - 16 K8s - 4 Q8s - 4 J8s - 3 (although I don't think he checks flop, at least not 100% of the time.) T8s - 3 98s - 4 87s - 2 86s - 3 88 - 6 So if he only bets an 8 or air on the river, then yes, we need to find at least 21 bluff combos to break even. However, if you think he bets a 3 like this on the river as well, then we need to add those to his value range and see how many more bluff combos we need to find. Also, do you think he turns a 5 into a bluff' I would guess most would not, but it's possible. As ...

$3.30 MTT line check
I think betting the turn is fine. When it checks around on the flop, it would seem that your hand is the best hand. Whether or not to call the river bet I think is actually close because of his river sizing in relation to your stack, it seems like he wants you to fold. He is very loose and is playing 30% VPIP, and also limped into the pot first in so we can pretty much label him a fish. I would expect he is the type of player to call with any type of draw on the turn there, an 8, a 5, hearts, T9, even a 3 possibly. He is polarized here, meaning he has the straight or not. He's not betting a ...

Next move????
I would probably flat with the intention of getting it in on the turn. The pot is heads up, you have position, and the board is dry, so you don't really have to worry about a bad card coming. With his cold call from the SB I would think he has a pocket pair, but he could also have a jack. There probably aren't too many Jacks he would play facing a 3 bet, so [JTs, QJs, AJs, 22, 33, 55, 66, 88-TT] I would guess is his range. It is possible he leads out with a set, but in that case you're fucked anyway (we weren't getting away from this hand), so we're just trying to maximize the value we get ...

AK How do you guys play it?
I forgot to take out combos the first time, but we still have 44.6% equity vs [KK-QQ,KJs+,AJo,KJo+] because of the combinations. We have an Ad, and there is a Jh on the board so those can not be in our opponents hand. Below is how many remaining combinations of each hand there are. KK - 3 QQ - 6 AJ - 9 KJ - 9 KQ - 12 We have the following equities vs each hand: KK - 31% QQ - 31.5% AJ - 30% KJ - 30.5% KQ - 74% The most frequent single hand we should see is KQ, and we have the largest equity vs that hand. When we group all the hands that beat us together, it is 27 combos (which we have ~31% ...

AK How do you guys play it?
Call. You're getting 2.24:1 so you only need 31% equity to break even and you are likely flipping vs his range. If he has something like [ATs+,KTs+,QJs,ATo+,KTo+,QJo] which I expect him to, then you have 47% equity. If he has something like 88, then you have 42%. Even vs a super tight (and unrealistic imo) range of [KK-QQ,KJs+,AJo,KJo+] you have 45%. I think you're going to see a jack a good portion of the time, but you're also going to see flush draws, KQ, AQ, 88 stuff like that. I'm assuming this is a fairly low stakes tourney based on the raise sizes and action preflop. Vs AJ we have ...

Do I understand the Rules?
generally the all in would have to be at least half of a raise. If he went all in for 150 then UTG would be allowed to raise. So in normal tournament settings UTG would not be allowed to raise when the all in is only 15 more chips. But, as justalurker said, it's a home game, and the rules don't always have to be exactly what official tournament rules are, but normally anything that differs from official rules would be discussed before the tournament starts, and everyone should be clear on what they are. I would just make sure you're clear going forward. If they want a raise to be allowed ...

How do you guys play 10-20bb
lol shoving 10bb with ATC is definitely too wide of a range to be shoving. Check out Nash ranges here / That should give you a good range to start from. If it's a tight table you can shove more often because they fold more often.

QQ faced alin last 2 tables of the big 4.40$
With your analysis of the guy already, being shove/fold this is such an easy snap call and never ever ever ever folding. He is clearly shoving very wide and QQ is so far ahead of that range it would be burning money to do anything other than fold.

Unfortunately you can't have just the alert sounds you want, like when you're timing out. You can only have it beep every time it is your turn to act which gets pretty annoying. It's under settings though in the lobby.

Fedor is definitely #1 in my book. He understands more about the game than anyone I know. He understands the importance of balance which is just so important for professional poker players. It's pretty insane what he's accomplished in just a few years, and still incredibly down to earth! Congrats Fedor! You've earned it!

Call off with 33 here preflop?
Are there antes'' Agree with SSSM. If I was in the BB it's a very close close spot. From the button I'd probably fold and wait for a spot to shove. Even from the BB I might fold. Your equity is probably about 47% against his shoving range, and you almost never have him dominated. So being on the button with no money invested I think it's easier to fold. When you're in the BB you might be getting too good of a price to fold.

Interesting spot with AJ
Yeah I gotta lean toward shoving here although I don't love it. With like 7bb in the pot already and some fold equity I think this will be profitable even though when he calls we will be behind, probably have about 35% equity vs his calling range. Picking up 7bb when he folds is huge.

33$ SS Bovada hand analysis
Why do you see other peoples cards that they folded' Are you PotRipper' And why the fuck would UTG have folded KQs in the first hand. Anyway, first hand, I'd just jam pre. He's got 17bb to start the hand and already put in 2. You're risking 16bb to win about 4 and vs a button raise he's going to fold often enough to make this profitable. As played I'd just check jam the turn. Second hand if you think he is 3 betting light then jamming is certainly fine. I like jamming over flatting because too many bad flops will come for us and we won't know if we still have the best hand (assuming we did ...

I would bet the turn. You should be checking this flop when you have an ace pretty often, and also, when the Q comes on the turn you can get value from Qx, KT KJ JT. I think as played I'm calling the turn and river. Also, what tourney is this' Buyin and is it a SNG or MTT
