re: Poker & Middle position 20bb KQ raise or fold?
ya, raise it... it only gets you into trouble if you let it get you into trouble don. You are only thinking about the scenarios that are bad, instead of looking at the whole picture.
if someone shoves on us, just fold.
If we hit a straight draw, then c-bet, or jam over a donk bet.
If we hit king high, we have the best hand, so get your stack in.
Keep in mind, it's a $1 tournament, they don't always have hands that are better than yours. Try to look at the big picture and stop letting your risk averse mindset make decisions for you.
Oh, it's also a "time" tournament, meaning the blinds go up rapidly, no time to be folding spots because you might get a better one.
