He called quickly pf and on the flop, and i had been pretty inactive, i often just open-fold this, but had been quiet and thought it was enough of a hand. can i just check-fold flop? or maybe check/call that really tiny bet? in retrospect i dont think i like my c/r much at all, i think he'll check behind T's or some lower pairs hoping to just showdown vs AK. But if he's not betting pairs, then his range is what, AQ/TT? that makes calling kinda grim, hoping to hit maybe 4 outs?

anyway, next:

at this stage of the tournament, is shiptha opening light enough that i have to play ATo here? later on in the tournament i think its much easier, but at this point he might be opening significatnyl tighter.

given that i decided to play it, stop and go>shove right? and does this stay true afer i flop TPTK? He can't think that i'm going to check/fold after calling pf, so i think i have to shove.

Hadn't seen the guy play a hand, i've been tight/straightforward, i didnt think bet-fold or bet-call flop was a good line, but after checking i kinda felt like my hand was too faceup for him to not try and stab at it


so what lines do you guys prefer?

1) i like it, not sure how much i like it but it seems okay. mainly because w/o any fd's he's prob much less inclined to call w/ a ten because he has to put you on a sd or total air. i also think given his timing firing the turn again is okay.

2) not really sure, i know AJ i'd never fold but AT seems borderline. w/ 8bb i prob play it even if it is marginal in terms of cEV and maybe even slightly negative just because it's a spot to accumulate and you might not find a better spot even for an open shove before you get blinded down.

fwiw i just put it in pre though. he knows you're sng'ing and while i have no idea how to evaluate the EV between sng and shove pf i think just getting it in pf is better because in a way you let him play close to perfectly post flop(ie - i don't think he almost ever folds any pairs and probably doesn't call w/ a worse hand TOO often).

3) looks pretty standard to me. his cc from the sb shouldn't be ax too often and with this board texture he can have a lot of semibluffs or worse pairs. and with your stack i don't think there is any value to calling and playing the river.

thought about it more, agree w/ that being a bad time to use the stop and go, i'd like it more if: he was a random not a regular that knows what i'm doing, he opened from later (wider) and if had a weaker hand (like, A5o or KQ)

#1: seems fine, although Villain's small bet size might mean he has a big hand.

#2: I'd fold pre. I hate the stop-n-go, I've never understood it, I hate it even more now that everyone knows what it is. As played, I'd check the flop, I think his c-betting range has to be wider than his shove calling range, and having hit you want his chips to go in. Which incidentally is one of the things I hate about the SNG -- if you hit the flop and don't have many chips left, why would you ever bet?

#3: I like shoving pre here, no one else on this forum does. As played, since you're not folding, you might as well get him to put his chips in, so I like the check behind on the flop to induce a bet on the turn.

well he almost surely recognizes you're short before he opens and is ready to call your shove so he should never have total air here(29o, T3s etc.) esp w/o antees. so i'd just want to push my equity edge vs. QJo/K9s and not want them to fold on 543 boards, while still expecting to get it in vs. any pair on most every board and any better ace.

Default Re: Some iffy $1k hands.

i'd shove #3 in earlier position w/ antes, i think.

and there are definitely spots where a stop and go can be good, for example last night at shaun deebs FT (from memory, #'s slightly off i'm sure):

unknown button opens to 25k at 4k/8k w/ 100k behind, Shaun has ~60k in the SB, and stop and goes w/ A6o, and the guy folds, getting >2:1 on the flop. i didnt do the math on it, but i'm like 90% sure that guy [censored] up and the SnG had more equity than a shove.

Hand 1: does he often valuebet the T on this turn? Seems thin.

Hand 2: don't think he folds hands like AK with these stacks on many flops. So that takes a toll on the stop/go. Thats not to say I like a shove. Just saying....

Hand 3: played very well.

Default Re: Some iffy $1k hands.

Hand 1: I'd rather keep betting the turn than c/c or c/r. Most/all smaller pairs should fold, and maybe the T will fold too. Once you check, i'd fold to most REAL bets.

To this turn bet i'm c/c and:

b/f any K.
c/f any blank.
c/r any A.
bet/call any 9.
