re: Poker & Is the tight play correct when you have 30BB in a tournament
At 30bb you still have plenty of time to play small ball. When you get under 10bb then you can start shoving that. Heck this morning i limped with aa to set a trap. It worked but i lost the pot on the good ole river. lol
Not sure what the rush was. That was way too early. I don't mind the shove as much as the hand. AQ is a really weak hand to push 30 BB. Most if not all of the hands that will call, will have you crushed.
I would say wrong, but it depends on the possition + where you at in the tournament stage, if bubble - yes you can shove, but other times - no,unless you know your ops range and its very loose... like KJ+ =)
30bb is a good stack (althoug i dont know the M) and you have no need to shove and put your whole stack on the line... but thats me
I don't think shoving AQ with 30bb is ever a good play. No point shoving when you can 3bet and get most villains out of the pot pre flop then if you miss you can get out or try and fire a barrel and get whoever is left to fold. Going all in with 30bb to flip a coin and go out is a fish play in my opinion
