Yes you did indeed.

However if this is a fold for you here with 12BB left then something tells me that you missed the boat long before this.

Do you tend to open your range up as the blinds get bigger?

Read the book "Kill Everyone" that has a lot of advice as far as what hands are strong enough to shove at different stages of the tourny.

I feel like I would get it in here every time with 12BB. I don't think the min raiser UTG is a terrible threat and the medium stack is going to call and then you just have to pray.

 

I guess it depends a lot on your reads on the two players in the hand. Has the medium stack been 3betting a lot? How tight is the UTG player.... etc.

 

 

 

Still with 12BB you aren't far from a stack that means nothing and if you're playing to win this is probably as a good a spot as any to try and double up.

Ok yeah never mind... Fold.

i don´t like your answer, your most of the time crushed here with AJ, and i know it sucks to fold a decent hand here with your stack but thats what u need to do...

i fold here unless i have some super duper monster read which i never have anyway

I still play these stakes from time to time, and this is an easy fold. You need to double up very soon, but there is no piint in pkaying here with practically no fold equity(I say practically since you occasionally see a weird fold). I'd rather open push atc than play here.

This is very incorrect. Just because you have less blinds does not mean your hand becomes more valuable in terms of what others are 3 betting with...

Insta Fold.

I mean i understand you are trying to help out, but did you just like throw poker terms into a random sentence and post it? I think you personally should take advantage of the poker minds of this forum and use it from a learning perspective but please for the love of god until you do that dont teach lol.

I was just giving my opinion. I assumed there would be other responses and people would either agree or disagree. And to say i'm just throwing poker terms into a random sentence seems rather rude. Yes I was incorrect but it's not like my post didn't make sense nor did I spew out something with no thought behind it.

However, based on your post history and your lack of a poker name attached to your name on here, you clearly got lost on your way to the OffTopic section to find someone to play some COD4 with. It's also funny that you think you're clever by bashing my post when the only reason you know you're right is because of the people who posted above you. You offered nothing more to the thread. So WP sir.

BTW Thx everyone else for the correction. : )

Yah when we're sitting there waiting & waiting for a spot & then we're finally deal a hand... it sucks when it's opened ahead & then 3bet (or worse.. ie. more action). Just gotta lay it down as mentioned by everyone else (well.. just about everyone else). And as others have said, you'd be better off open-shoving something like T8s then getting it in here.

It sucks watching your stack blind down & not being able to find a spot. I've actually had a few good scores after getting into spots like this (good as far as micro donkament goes anyways).

Damn i read the first reply like 5 times before reading the others trying to find what i'd missed.

We have an utg open and a competent player 3betting with a 30bb stack. I'd need AK before i'm comfortable getting it in here. AJs is fine to shove with 12bb but not 4b jam with no FE against probable tight ranges.
