Another important note is that this was a bounty tournament where each knockout got $30, but there was no prize except for first place ($95 + $30 for the second place finishers bounty + $30 for your own bounty = $155). So moving up the pay scale is not much of a consideration nine-handed, however, collecting two bounties might be.
Did you put me on aces?I had Azcat on the raggy hand that he hand. After the speech by the tight player ("that was my move") I knew she wasn't super strong; she probably had Az on a similar hand and figured her pair was better. But there were too many hands behind her.I figured my jacks were good, but I didn't want any big non-paired hands to play (I figured queens and up is calling). That was essentially a $60 hand (two KO's). Unless you put me on aces, not sure how you can fold. And if I ran KK into AA in that hand, well, gg me.More questionable than snap-calling with KK there was calling a 400K AI bet on the flop with "just a flush draw" when we were four-handed... but that's because you're a better player than me. can't argue that point.
Wouldn't be a snap call at all for me. Especially with points involved etc. As someone above said it would really be about who it was all-in and their stack sizes. That's a huge pot that you are most likely ahead in pre-flop, but if anyone has AA you are like 20% pre-flop, tough call.
A call is imminent, I just don't think its a snap call.
Quote from: Detroitdad on Aug 29, 2014 at 09:09A call is imminent, I just don't think its a snap call. As soon as you contemplated a call, I knew I was behind. I don't think AK, AQ or >JJ in that spot is much of a choice. So I figured you were QQ, KK or AA.If I flat Angie's all in, do you flat or raise?If you flat, I probably C-bet the K-high flop and I assume you shove. At that point, I can probably let me jacks go and save myself a couple 100k. But that's pretty results-oriented thinking.
I shove. Calling would only leave me around 50k. If I'm committing 125k preflop it might as well all go in right now.
fwiw, its nice to see an actual poker discussion taking place here.
