re: Poker & High blind play in SNG. Evaluate some hands please (Video)
Here I go, sorry I took so long (not like I'm giving expert advice or anything ).
Here's a good hand replayer: http://www.universal-replayer.net/
K8 shove is fine, that dude has a super weak range and you should take it down pre most of the time. The thing I'm more worried about is how you got down to 850 chips - usually that means you may have missed a few spots earlier in the tournament.
Yeah the QJ is a fold, unless he's shoving like >85% of the time it's a fold. It's true that you're under some blind pressure, so maybe it's not an auto fold, but still a fold imo.
99 looks good to me.
Normally I'd fold KT there too, but with the stacks the way they are (i.e. you're crushing everyone) a shove is good too.
Nothing wrong with the K8s, you take down ~700 if he folds.
Meh, the 87 isn't automatic, since you guys are in a virtual tie and the other guy is pretty short. I really like to shove wide bvb but I don't think this is the time.
The 75 looks like a fold to me, the guy in the BB is going to be calling wider than usual because he's so short and he's really desperate. Never ever open raise, just shove with these stack sizes.
I'm shoving that K7 too - even though he may be adjusting slightly since we've done this a few times. But with that strong of a hand we can't fold imo.
Yeah I'm shoving that 96s, you have like 4bb's and if you let the blinds hit you you're really screwed.
With the 54s, here we're getting great odds but the issue is 1) if we call and lose we have a stack that carries no fold equity ourselves, and 2) our hand isn't really that good. It's not an awful call but I might argue for folding this time (I might just be a dumb nit though )
Definitely shoving JT there.
With 62s, I'm fine checking pre but I might shove the flop, there's way too much money in that pot to let it get to showdown, especially since there are no good turn or river cards.
Auto-shove with K9
With K2s, now that you're less than 1bb I'll often just let the BB hit me, but you actually have a good hand so definitely get the money in. If you wait for the BB, you give yourself a chance to get a better hand, and there's a chance that the BTN will raise and the SB will fold to the raise, leaving you heads-up. When you go all-in on the button here, you're likely to see a 3-way pot where the other guys check it down to the river. However K2s is definitely good enough to put your small chip stack into the pot.
Too bad you got a walk with that AK.
I don't know if you can fold that A5 there - it depends on how wide you think he's shoving, but the bottom line is you have less than 3bb's after posting and a well above average hand, most of the time you have to get it in there.
Now that you folded that there isn't a whole lot you can do now - T3s is probably good enough for a shove but what sucks is that you have no fold equity... Wait, nevermind, they folded lol. Usually you never want to put yourself into that spot, but since they're both pretty short themselves I guess you have a little more FE.
A note for the heads-up, with a stack as short as yours you pretty much need to shove every hand. But yeah, maybe another time.
Thanks for sharing!
