I'll push push push because nits are folding hands like 22-JJ and AQ and sometimes even AK and QQ. Have fun occasionally min-cashing fellas!
As to calling....I won't call a bubble push from a NIT with hardly anything...
But if it's a push from a LAG I still will call tight because there's easier spots to make chips but I'll probably call a LAG with JJ+ and AK (provided we both have comfortable stacks and neither of us are desperate).
it's the end of day bubble from the 2014 WSOP
Monster Stack event. Mind you, it's not a money bubble, just a bag and tag and get a good night's sleep bubble. probably 30-40% of the field still remains.
NITS are not only just playing like NITS, but actually telling me their exact ranges. "I'll fold AK and AQ. I guess I'll have to call with KK or AA. God I hope I don't get Queens or Jacks!" and they're serious. I watched one old man with a short stack in his BB agonize over a button vs. blind push and he finally folded his AK face up! It's bad enough to fold it, but it's like 20x worse to SHOW it....Jesus now that we know you'll fold AK right there, do you think you'll ever get to see a flop again?
Anyways a different nitty old man finally pushed from his CO for like 8bbs. The big stack with like 150bbs called from his BB with T9s because he didn't give a rats ass about an 8bb shove. The Nit had pocket aces and got knocked out. WHY? because by not bothering to build a stack when he could, he failed to protect his future monster hand.
meanwhile, I'm raising their blinds with complete trash and complete impunity picking up 2-3 uncontested pots each orbit. I almost doubled up during this time without ever being all in...
So, ask yourself: Did I come here to play poker, or just watch the big boys and girls play? You can never win a tourney if you don't get in there and play some hands.
