Need some help with this situation
(I know this was covered in the blog as a limit issue but this is more for tourny play)
This is something that i find comes up quite often for myself in tournement play. In the small blind early in the event (blinds 10-20, 20-40 ect) and have say K10s, J10s Q10o, there have been say 1-2 limpers, I find myself at a loss as to what to do here. Do you just limp and try to see the flop due to the good pot odds
? A standard raise of 3-4 will more than likely just induce the callers to come along. I raise now i am out of position with no reads on the players hands ect. The flop misses me, which seems to happen more and more. Do i fire a contunation bet? perhaps a probe bet? And then i get a caller. now what? If i check, and someone bets do i just lay the hand down.
If that is the case then why don't i just fold preflop instead! It's not as if the cards in my hand are terrible and unplayable. They are decent starting cards
