Should hero have open jammed with 15+ bigs?
Reads: no individual reads
Donk leads are often TPTk, bluffs ( u dont have any of that flop) over pair 88 99 TT
DISCOUNT premiums since no 3bet
Villan could have a 5
Didnt think villan had str8 cuz who leads with nuts? I block 7,5
Could have 1 of 3 possible sets
Knew i had little to no fold equity against villan. Jammed to get heads up thus increasing my equity.
HA! Never considered folding.)
Hero wins with better 2 pr
Went on to win tourney
All comments welcome
Where were you in the tournament? Any ICM implications to consider?
Middle stage i.e. not itm.
Pre-flop: I am not a fan of the min raise pretty much ever and definitely not in this spot with a mid pair. At 15BB I think its a fine jam. I guess you could raise your premiums to 2.5x with the intention of shoving over a 3-bet but you are pretty much out of poker at this depth and into push/fold territory.
Post flop: While a very weak player could donk TP, on a dynamic flop like this one, a strong lead into the field is usually at least 2 pair. I guess some 5x combos might lead, like 5/6s, but I'd personally check-raise with those hands. Still, with an overpair and these effective stacks, I don't think there is much to do other than go with it.
No one has ever won a tournament without running well at some point. You doubled at a crucial time and took the whole thing down. Congrats on the win.
Yes, at 15BB and a hand that will always be starting at overcards on the flop, this is a pre-flop jam. I dont think you are trying to induce a 3-bet here and if AK shows up, he is going to call anyways.
