This is a discussion on 2 Questions within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; OK I'm low stacked and BB get 10-J h's got only enough left for SB,how do you play this hand? I know wait and see
OK I'm low stacked and BB get 10-J h's got only enough left for SB,how do you play this hand? I know wait and see what flop is but say if someone raises after me before flop fold or go with raise and pray for a good flop. Next is you've got an opened ended straight with possible flush draw waiting on river someone makes large bet and it would almost clean you out,this person is known to buy the pot. Is is just a gut instinct to what you do or what. Need some of this expertise advice.

great questions! I think you go all in on the first hand if you only have enough to cover small blind next hand. On number 2 it's gut instinct for me at least but I think I make the call if the guy has been buying them all night and its the best flush and straight on the board. You don't want to go out with the "sucker" on either if these. But I can't wait to hear what the experts say since I don't know how tho play these same situations!
Wow 400 so fast! The last hundred flew by, must have been a bunch of crap!

Well, #1 you should NEVER let your stack get this low for any reason other than you just lost a pot and you only have a small amount left.
#2, if you have enough to post the SB next hand, put it in when you are the BB with ANY TWO CARDS!!!! You will be getting the most value out of your chips by putting that extra .5 BB into the pot preflop and you end up winning the hand. In order to have any hope of surviving, you need to accumulate chips while going into pots with the worst hand...
THis should be an INSTANT push.

Well, you have two options. If you go all in, you have a decent hand to go all in with and possibly double up. If you fold, you're automatically all in with whatever is dealt to you. I go all in on this one. If you fold, what are the chances you would get a better hand when you automatically go all in. Evven if you win, you don't win as much as if you went all in when you had J, 10.

1.agree if short stacked with only enough left to cover SB all in on BB no matter the two cards.
2. when you say possible flush draw, are you saying three to the flush or four? of course if you are still ss with only enough to cover sb next hand you have to go all in. But, if in this instance you are average stacked and going up against someone who likes to buy pots good chance they are on a draw themselves. If they are someone you are familiar with and know they are 75% or higher chance to be bluffing i would call, otherwise you are chasing and nothing worse than chasing. (I tell myself that and find myself chasing sometimes too lol)
