The 63o is a terrible hand, but I was down to 4 BBs or so and thought I might still have some slim amount of fold equity.
Ok so after winning a hand with 33 i was back to even, each of us having around 6500 chips. Here is the series of hands that led to my downfall.
BTN- Q5o, I foldJam this, most probably, theres a huge differance between Qhigh and 63 off, have a look at poker stove and see the hand range chart, and think about what hands are better to shove with heads up Q high or J 10s etc.
BB- J7o, he min raises, I fold Good, since at this point he probably only min raised once.
BTN- 85o, I foldDepending on your stack size, this is probably a shove, close one.. it's somewhat connected, and we cant afford to fold too many buttons.
BB- 53o, he limps, I check, T29 flop, check/fold
BTN- T3o, I shove, he folds
BB- K2o, he limps, I shove, he foldsNot a huge fan of shoving this.
BTN- 73o, I fold seems fine, if your getting short you can shove it
BB- J9o, he minraises, I fold <-----probably should have shoved heredepends what your stack size is, folding isnt horrible
BTN- 83o, I foldagain, if your getting short 6-7bb's you can shove this, he won't call wide enough on average to make the shove bad, hed have to call with stuff like k5s or 35% of hands to make shoving 100% of hands unprofitable.
BB- 82o, he minraises, I fold
BTN- 63o, shove with 3640 or about 4.5 BBs looks good.
Sorry if the above is confusing, tried to make it as clear as I could.
ALSO- I did try minreraising him one time. He minreraised me back! I called w/ my Q4s and hit a Q on the flop. He min bet the flop and I shoved and he folded.yuck, hate calling the reminraise, at these blinds, dont stoop to his level, were trying to exploit him, make yourself less exploitable by just shoving. its your only play with 12bb's or less, especially vs an obvious donk.
