Computer Calling Range

edited September 2019 in Specific Hand Questions

I'm curious as to why the computer would call off a 10bb shove with 53s, when starting the hand with 12bb? I've seen a couple curious calls with marginal hands in my sims so far, but this one was worth flagging.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Jason,
    I haven't seen the rest of the tourney so I don't know for sure, but my guess is that the bot had somewhat of a read that your range was very weak because of what you had been doing before and it was at least 40/60 and maybe closer to 45/55 (which it was - 46/54). The bot had to put in another 100k to go heads up for 254K chips and knocking you out, so depending on the read, it isn't necessarily that bad a call in terms of ICM.

    Thank you Allen.

    Admittedly, I had a couple suspect plays of my own in this tourney, which, along with ICM, I can see factoring into the decision. I thought it odd because there are few scenarios where the bot will be better than 40/60 for 85% of their stack, regardless of my play.

    I'm new to the program and wanted to make sure I'm getting an accurate representation of opponent play in these spots rather than having an opponent punt me their stack unnecessarily.
