sng spot

playing a lil session while i wait for my connecting flight to bahamas and i get in a spot in a sng where i wasnt sure what to do.

The villian played a big hand early and folded so we didnt see his cards, but then doubled with JJ (when he had 700 at 100/200), and then doubled with AA (vs my kk) but basicallly he was plyaying pretty tight.

In this hand im putting his range at ATos+, a8s+, 66+ KQs

dpottz (or anyone who knows how to) if u could pokerstove this that’d be nice…i dont have that program anymore.

If it was AJ os im sure i woulda folded (still possibly a bad fold i dont really know the numbers too well i just know i like shoving a lot better than calling)

I ended up calling cuz it just looked to good and obv i was short and semi desperate, but i really could see either way being correct.

usually within a second of seeing a hand i know what the correct play is (well atleast what i would normally do) but this spot stumped me.

hopefully numbers dont show an OBV Call or fold so atleast i dont look like a moron for questioning it.


big hand

big hand from 22 deepstacks. no read on villain, has been playing fairly tight but still involved in many hands.

my flat call here is to try to make me hand look weak, I hate getting checkraised and am trying my best to keep the pot small as possible in case he has some lucky flush draw with maybe AcKx or a flopped full.

Def. I like the call, not only because its a coin, and he doesnt have an overpair, but he had trash, 50bb’s w/ aj ai.

btw 18/200+ in the 11r(45k)

and plz fk up that TurkeyFeet character, I HATE THAT PLAYER.

>100 left 75k @2500/5k! gl Elliz

ok I guess he out….wow I saw that A5 call, wtf

whats ur play here?

the utg limper is known to be a big donkey, but scossett is verrrry good @ sngs.

when he just 3x’s here it scares me (i would think he’d almost always be Shove or fold, ) but i also have a goooood hand in a sng where options are limited.

just curious to see what anyone else thinks.

dpottz u were right about rotter i guess, good to know.

Oth, i know what ur saying about making people make bad calls with their chips, i prob coulda riased a lil more, but i still think the amount i raisee was enough to have them make bad calls with mid pairs
