Blind All In as SS during Live Play?
I am curious of those who play live if you consider going all in blind as ss in the bb as a good or bad idea?
Last week I played in a live tourney at the casino and for 2 hours I was completely card dead. I had 1 ppr, 22 and that's it. Never had a big A or other ppr's and never had a hand bigger than top pair on the board. It was really bad. I had enough chips to go another orbit, but then I would have been blinded out. I was at a fairly aggressive table and I knew I had to pick a hand and shove.
I was in the bb and a very unusual thing happened, all but 1 player folded. The btn limped, the sb folded and I'm looking around at the table knowing I have enough chips to go 1 more orbit but this was the first hand I had seen just 1 limper and everyone else folding. So I pushed ai blind, the btn called and won with his Q9 su, I ended up having another typical hand, 84 os.
My thought was this: It's highly unlikely I will get another chance in the next 9 hands to go hu and my odds
of doubling up will be better with just 1 opponent, especially since it was a limped btn call. I had been playing for 2 hours and had not been getting suited connectors, no big Aces and no ppr's.
