FLop is K 7 8 rainbow. SB bets 900, BB folds and SB pushes allin.
Not including this info in the first place was an error on my part, as I tried to get an idea of what you would do when faced with an open-ended str8 draw, but I realize now that you do need chip counts ect, to make a decision.
Anyways, now that you have the proper info, would you have done the same thing if you were the Button.
my honest answer, rip it apart if Im wrong:
im TAG, so I fold. its early stage, yeah i might hit, there's a chance, but not much of a one. 665, 555, 666, 347, should cover what i want to hit.
but anything with a sole 5 or 6 in it is trouble, Ie AK6, AK5, KK5, QT5 sooooted will cause me so much trouble.
I understand you are on the button. BB raises? So I want at least the average hand in online poker to justify a raised call-Q7os-you are behind that hand with 56, so fold. In a 10 seater table, odds are better than 50-50 that some guy will have an Ace in their hand somewhere, everyone else has folded, you havent got it, so who do you think has? BB or SB. Wait, they raised you, does that tell you anything????????
Finally, I play about 10 mtt's on my home site every week, properly, I pretty much know how long they are going to last, ie the $2 will go on for 2 hours:lets take that for an example, for the first hour I call or reraise raises with only the top 10 hands, ie AA,KK,QQ, certainly not 56. I use that in BB. Why? I dont want to leak any chips, because as soon as I get AA, KK, QQ, I want to have the maximium amount of chips to do the maximum amount of damage with that hand, not to regret losing 200 chips on a reraised bet holding 56. Is that enough info to start with, sir, or do you want me to go my next level of reasoning for not calling a raise with 56 on the button in the early stage of a MTT?
