12 players left two tables (6 at once table 6 the other table)u are in Utg,Mp beetween 8-15 BB ,everybody is playing tight they wanna make it to the final table,my question is how you play 44,55 you shove,you min raise.I ussualy go all in but everytime some woke up with a better pair,or you don't even play 22,33,44.any thoughts?
Don't be sad, don't be blue..Frankenstein was ugly too.
A very aggressive game is my choice. That's the best time to "snatch" chips! Everyone plays tight and this situation should always be used. I think of a live game because I do not have enough experience in the online game.
Ok position should also be considered. How many are left to call? If you are short which to me is 12BB or less and only 1,2 or 3 left to go and everyone in front has folded I say Shove with 22 thru JJ, maybe 3x QQ KK or AA that really depends on the table feel. You also have to know what the left to go villains normally do. If they are more apt to fold shove away. You also have to take into consideration the players stack sizes I would be more careful of mega stacks that just call everyone.
I win 100% of the hands that I win.
