What Would You Do?
I’m in my normal live $210 tournament. We’ve been playing for about 6 hours and I have about $60K while blinds are $1500 and $3000 with a $300 ante.
I’m in the big blind and am dealt
As usual, a limp fest kicks off as 5 players limp into the pot – including the button who had at least $350K , a stack that proved to be at least a 3:1 chip lead – and he was still limping in every hand….sigh! I check my option.
Pot - $24K
The SB then moves all-in for $40K.
I don’t really want to call here – I think there are better spots and we all know that you should never lose all your chips in an un-raised pot, but I know immediately that he either has 9 10 or 5 6 – maybe a set, but the only draw available is the most probable.
I call because I don’t know how to get away from that – I knew I was a 60% + favorite.
I was right, not that it was even hard, and he shows
On the upside, at least the
hit the turn instead of the river – I received no help on the river and thus lost 65% of my stack at the worst possible time and busted 20 minutes later.
Obviously I think this was just unlucky, however, should I have folded the flop?
