This is a discussion on A Q Off within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Blinds are 2000-4000. Hero has A Q off suit on the button. All fold to hero. Hero bets 8000 with 60000 stack. BB goes all
Blinds are 2000-4000. Hero has A Q off suit on the button. All fold to hero. Hero bets 8000 with 60000 stack. BB goes all in with 18000 more. Should this be a call or fold??
If this happens to me, with AQ offsuit in any position and a 3 bet or more hits the board, I fold. Also important to note here, if I am less than 15 blinds (you were right on 15 BB) and BB goes all in with 4+ BB, I will fold.
Here's what I usually will do:
1. As a starting hand and I am first to bet, I raise (including UG).
2. If there are 2 or more limpers, I fold.
3. If I am raised to, I reraise (providing it is 2BB or less).
4. If someone 3 bets or more, I fold.
Good luck, good question!
The most hated bit of writing can be a wonderful safety valve - providing the wastebasket is somewhere nearby.
