A quick Tourny Question ...
I was in a $12 SNG on Bovada
yesterday and ran into a little situation that I am looking for some clarification on. I am in the SB with Q 10 off and limp in (Blinds were 200/400 I don't remember if the antes had started yet, but anyway I called and saw the flop which was Q 8 10 Rainbow. I was thinking that if the BB who was the only other player in the game had a Jack he would be interested in seeing a few more cards so I was going to make him pay for it so
I made about a pot sized (800 leaving me with about 1900 afterwards) bet and after a few seconds the BB calls. the turn card is a 9 and now I know that if he has a Jack he is golden. No sooner than I had thought that did the BB shove his stack which had me more than covered. The best I had in my mind was a chance to pair the board with another ten or queen or the river is a Jack and we split the pot. That gave me 4 outs with two remaining Q & 10 and another 3 outs with the Jack. I was also short stacked and needed to make a move. I called with the river rewarding me with a 10 for a full house. Was this a terrible play? I got a lot of negative chatter from the BB about how terrible I played the hand, but considering that I was short stack and had a few outs I decided to go for it. Your thoughts ?
