this has been bugging me
Very standard call blind on blind. Also with you stack size roughly 19bbs you shouldn't be opening with hands you don't intend to call an all in push with. Guys can push over the top of you with alot of effectiveness because if you fold you still have open push and reraise fold equity.

Advice needed.
what site are you playing on where @ 500/1000 there is no ante... with 11bbs and no antes if the orginal limper had folded 5s are an ok shove i'd prefer 7s or better and i don't mind folding till in latter position. I'm probaly folding this in the situation you mentioned and looking for a better spot. 8s i move in and isolate. GL

How do you normally play QQ?
Unless you have been watching the other table and are absolutley positive you'll get raised (you wanna get the money in obv) then limping is terrible. Raise to 1000 or so and pretty uch call any push

Right or wrong play??? I thought it was the right decision
I think your play is ok preflop, a case can even be made for folding this. Limping behind is not good with your stack size, and for you to make a raise to 1000 you are putting in 25% of your stack with a hand that you are going that you are going to hate alot of flops. One thing to take in to account is you had a read on the guy that he'd been playing alot of hands and almost any two. He has alot of chips and willingness to call, and he's getting better then 2 to 1 on this call also. That flop is about as good as you are going to get for T 6 spades, and with his stack, nothing wrong with his ...

I hated being in this hand
flop play is fine, you are oop and that 2 of spades is the worst card in the deck. A dry jack beats you now. Leading out on that turn sucks because he's not going to give you any credit for for c/r him w a deuce on the flop and he is going to be semi bluffing you with a pretty wide range of hands here which you can't call. Best line is to check fold the turn and move onto the next. GL

Intersting spot early with JJ in SnG
Raises like this alot of times are hands that people don't want to see a flop with, but interestingly enough will call an allin push with. I don't know the player, but usualy donkey until proven otherwise. I actualy think i push is +EV here yeah he's gonna call w/ AK and AQ and I don't think AA, KK, QQ are raising 7x most of the time. I also think he will turn over TT and 99 enough of the time here to make this a good push. Flat calling is horrible. The omly thing that sucks a bit about a push is there are still alot of people left to act behind you, but I do think you have has range crushed.

AQo on bubble - do i have to call?
This is an insta call, also if you have read harrington (The book as a whole is amazing) His theories on SNG bubble play are terrible. AQ is way ahead of the short stacks range and you have him covered

Bad play by me...or bad call by opponent?
You can not flat call there with 89o with your chip stack and the % of your stack it is going to cost you. I think folding is the only play pre flop you can make. If you shove she's getting monster odds to call you with any hand that was a legit raising hand, and if she called you with KQ on the flop she's certainly calling with it pre flop. Nothing wrong with the way you played it on the flop, ugly call by her but that stuff happens. When you get roughly 6BB you need to be open shoving alot almost any two if it gets folded around to you, and flat calling anything preflop with that stack and ...

Did I play this incorrectly/badly?
The turn call is horrid, the pre flop play is horrid also, the villian is 60bbs deep and you min raises w/ KK. you want to get money in pre to cut down on his implied odds when you are both that deep. I don't know this guys opening range but since it is 6 max I assume it fairly wide. Since you have priced in all types of hands he could have hit the flop in various ways sets, 2 pairs, dry 10s, floped joint. If you had a read on the guy then nc on the turn I just think most of the time in this situation you will be stacking off with 1 pair and no redraw. GL

Shove or Fold?
never ever complete here. I'd look at the HH and see what he has been limping. I'd also would db his stats if possible if he is a losing player I'm inclined to push if he is a winning player I'm more inclined to wait for a spot to where i can be first in. GL

99 in mp, about 18 to go for money... proper play??
You are putting in a little over 15% of your stack pre I hate raising here if you aren't ready to call an all in from a limper. You have a stack that is very easy to repush on on top of it being close to the bubble. I don't really like limping behind here. If I'm making this raise I'm usualy calling the shove most times.

am i an idiot, 18th left bubble
The flop raise isn't bad, the turn shove is terrible. If the other guy had have played his hand better and reraised all in on the flop you probaly could have gotten away from this hand. He's at at least 12, and 15 if he's counting his A (obv it's not but he might think it is). But with the amount of his stack in the middle after the flop you just gotta check/fold

WHAT ARE THE BOOKS NOT TELLING ME?!?!
Let me try ans summerize some stuff i've seen so far, and also haven't. 1.) Tournaments of that size are high varience. 2.) There are parts in every tournament you play where you will be racing, anyone who says you can avoid racing is full of shit. That being said if you are playing good and lose your races you aren't going to win. 3.) The biggest thing is using your fold equity. Even if you get it in bad if someone had to call you you at least have an extra out.

AK on the button Vs AQ in the bb - is it always a cooler? Advice
In a vaccum there is nothing wrong with this and it is a winning play over the long run, AQ is almost always ahead of someone's button raising range. That being said first hand at a new table where you don't know the player makes it difficult to resteal. I think flatting or doing as you did was reasonable.

What is your philosophy on playing AK in Mid-Late stages of tourneys?
With all the situations taken into account that you said this is an easy shove. Your 12x the BB and you are shoving a LAG that has a very large range. AT, AJ, and AK are certainly all in his range of raising hands along with probally any PP and some suited connectors. So no fault of your at all with pushing. Because alot of the time you are going to be crushing his range or have him dominated. Now from his perspective, He's raising UTG + 1 with 10 10. His opening raise was to 3K and then you shove him for 12K. so his 3K + your 12K + 500 SB + 1000BB = 16500 chips. (you didn't list it but ...

180's
Overall, the play in the 180s (any buy in) is horrid. There are alot of diffrent styles that you can play early on and still be fine. There is nothing wrong with being loose and agressive early on if you are able to find which guys are gonna pay you off and call you down lite when you hit a big flop. There are plenty of people that when they get a 7 high flop are more then happy to stack off with top pair, 88, or something along those lines. There is also something to be said for playing a little tighter early on because you'll see alot of guys that are playing loose passive that you can take ...

Jennifear's article
I think you might be missing a little bit of the concepts of this. What Jennifear was saying is very good, but in poker no two situations are ever the same. The reraising oppertunities are profitable plays in every strong players arsenal. You shouldn't be liberaly doing this w/o having a read on what you think they are holding and also if you think they are capable of folding what they are holding. Coming over the top of an agressive player is tricky at times. Alot of times we are opening it up with marginal hands, but their is nothing that says we can't have a premium every now and then, ...

You have 77 in the small blind
I don't think raise to 4000 is to induce a 4bet, it just looks stronger than straight shoving...there is no trap there...obv with half our stack in the middle we're playing the hand to the end. IF he cold calls (which seems unlikely), then we act first from the sb and are shoving any flop. You really think there's much of an EV difference in 77 v. 88 against a loose opponent' obv i know a 4K is not trying to induce a 4 bet... but it gives the guy a chance to play back at you which is not what you want w/ 77 and only 20bbs. If the villian cold calls there is 10K in the pot and you push your ...

I want a student (Edited: Sorry If I don't respond to PM's)
Hi GP My name is Steve I have been playing for about a year and half. During that time I've mostly played SnGs and MTTS. I've dabbled in cash games here and there. Over that year and a half my game has changed alot from being an uber donk to a very solid player. I've had a few nice tournament scores, but I've never been able to put together a string of them to to be able to play at the stakes that I would like to. I've busted my account tons of times from playing above my bankroll. (which for the most part has never been anything spectacular) I've done this many times because I'm always ...

You have 77 in the small blind
You are obv ahead oh his range if he is opening that much, I disagree w/ rasing to 3600 or 4000 preflop. You are not really wanting to induce a 4 bet and "trap" with 77. If he cold calls and the flop comes 2 or 3 broadway cards you've just put 50% of your stack in preflop oop and you can't call a bet. The only play that is +EV here is a shove. Folding is probaly neutral EV. If you had 8s here i think folding would be -EV. Steve
