On the contrary of the answer above, the answer is yes, is the right move. Calling 36000 to win 87000 means that you have must have at least 29% if equity. The hands that has this equity against AK are 22+, A2s+, KTs+, Q2s+, J2s+, T2s+, 92s+, 82s+, 72s+, 62s+, 52s+, 42s+, 32s AKo, Q2o+, J2o+, T2o+, 92o+, 82o+, 72o+, 62o+, 52o+, 42o+ even taking in to ...

Your preflop actions look fine. You have the second best starting hand in poker, so 4betting strongly is correct. The 3-5-6 rainbow flop is coordinated, but you worrying about hands like 2-4 and 4-7 is just silly. Think about it: would you call a 4-bet preflop with this kind of hand? Probably not unless you were super deepstacked (which you didn't mention, ...

I think the biggest mistake here is not raising pre-flop. With three people in the hand and AQ out of position I think this has to be a raise, relating to some comments that I read I would be raising here 100% of the time, I don't think playing AQ out of position is great (obviously you play it, it's a monster) and so narrowing the field would be the first ...

I would definitely raise PF to see where I am. If you dont raise you allow trash to see the flop and secondly you have no idea if your AQ is the strongest A. If you are re-raised you can tighten your villains range PF without second guessing OTF. That alone puts you in a tough spot OTF. I would much prefer to be re-raised and knowing where I am. As someone ...

Depends on many factors. Like if you have any history on these players and how they play. Personally I would have raised pre with that hand to at least get rid of any silly hands for the big blind. He could be sat there with 2 7 for all you know. But back to the actual question. I would say that you have the strongest Ace. I would expect anyone else to ...

As you said, it is easy. You want to start with the maximum BB's. Play tight in beginning to increase your stack. If you join as shortstack with around 30 bb's you can be an easy victim by someone who pushes you all in without any problems. That will not happen in the beginning phase, because everyone has the same amount of bb's.. as you said, easy. :)) now ...

You should enter the tournament as early as possible. Presumably, you're participating in the tournament because you have some sort of edge against the field. In other words, you should be playing the tournament because it is profitable for you to do so. Playing the earlier stages of the tournament lets you play more hands against your opponents, which ...

I think that pre-flop is pretty strange play by your opponents unless you guys are super deep. When you say you raised 3x because of the premium hand you should probably start re-thinking this tactic pre-flop. If you raise 3x with premium hand and 2x with hands that are worse this is pretty exploitable play. I would then say that depending on how deep you ...

I guess the best answer to this is that you should join whenever you will have a stack that you are comfortable playing with. If you are comfortable playing with a short stack then join right at the end of the late reg. (This what i do quite often). As long as you have over 10bb then you have a little bit of play before you have to be in Shove Fold mode. ...

I can list some "guaranteed prize pool" tips: Yes, you are absolutely right that poker rooms are attracting more players by "guaranteed" prize pools. The guaranteed prize amount depends on the average number of players in this particular tournament in certain time interval. I think that poker rooms definately have statistics based approach here. If the ...

The aim of poker is to have all the chips at the end of the tournament, so the more chips you have at any one time, the better. If you are one of the chip leaders then don't bother, you already have plenty of chips to boss people about with. If you are close to the chip lead and the add on is good value then I would probably take it. If you are low then ...

To make it simple, Bear in mind that, for those who called your raise in pre-flop, very likely they have an Ace on hand. So basically if there's no Aces on flop, I would raise or even go all-in, not to allow them to draw the chance of catching a pair of Ace. But if an Ace came out, I would definitely just check.

The biggest difference in the 50 people sng and the 500 mtt is just that. Do not make any adjustments if you feel you are profitable. Remember though if you are itm 20% in this SNGs which is 1/5 times, you can now only expect to be itm 1/50 times due to the sheer volume of players. This means it takes you longer to approach that EV that you deserve. The ...

I doubt that there is such a thing as a "standard practice" when it comes to the reseating process. I too have played in tourneys in which reseated players always take the cutoff seats. This is certainly fair for the players being reseated, but it does have disadvantages: It's not so fair for the current late-position players. Seating new players at the ...
