Following the cash hand review thread I thought I'd ask a few questions on tournament hands, specifically because this came up earlier and I'd love some feedback on my decisions and what others may have done.
A UK Tour €1 satellite, reg has just closed, 12 entries, 11 left, 2 x €5 on offer.
A standard raise, from UTG, 2 callers, I hadn't played many hands and was somewhere in the middle of the pack, so called, if I didn't flop well I could get away.
A snap shove and a snap call on an interesting flop. The caller still has 5bb left and is likely to put the rest in, so if I call and lose I'm more or less out. I've seen these shoves and calls on every type of hand. QQ, two pairs, top pair, a straight draw, a flush draw, really anything. Some of them are much less likely, but we do see all of them at times. I called, it's only €1 and I was in that mood anyway, and I feel I have a lot going for me, loads of draws myself, including the big one. Is it worth it to call here, and if so would you still call in a €10 tourney or a €100 tourney?
As I suspected the last few bb went in, I was commited and knew I would call on any turn anyway.
Any thoughts, anyone.
So so so typical... Keeping in mind thats a 1 euro satty, and i always see crazy moves there, UTG can have anything, but i think he has overpair, like KK or AA, or maybe QT, looks like he is the rush Not much to do on your side, the draws pulling you in anyway, you are allin no matter what. I would probably shove on the flop
(but im just the master of disaster on low stakes )
@GR1ZZL3R as others have said before; the stakes are important here. Especially in UK/UO lower satties, many people freeroll there - in this spot you will see many people with AK betting/calling every street.
HERE - call or allin on the flop doesn't matter , this is such a board that there is no chance to fold this hand, especially in this stage. even with ie. Fiod 60bb it is a call on the flop, beacuse you want him on the turn and river
Following on from the earlier hand.......................
This one was much later in a sattie and I was getting low on chips, about 12th of 16 or so.
Everyone was limping in so I tagged along.
It went check check, and I might as well get a free card.
This time there was a bet so I called, again loads of draws.
Great river. This time villain checked and I thought the 3 to a flush and 4 to a straight might have scared him a bit. I thought if I shoved he might have folded so I only went 3/4 pot, but should have known, if they've got something they'll call.
Two straight flushes in two days, onwards and upwards.
