Hey guys,

All in with pocket 10 or less does it worth it?

I've made it a lot of times, pocket 10, 9 and 8s, most of them i lost to a normal KQ preflop or maybe AJ... Should i stop going all in with small pockets?

All depends on stack sizes for the most part. If you’re below 15 bb and no one else has entered the pot then definitely go all in with them. Even if someone raises before you, you should shove over the top. If there multiple all ins before you, I would probably fold depending on where you are in the tournament. Unfortunately you will lose about 50% of the time up against two over cards but if you’re short you may not get a better opportunity plus if you’re first in then you also have fold equity. Hope that helps some.

Depends if you’re in the money.
If you got big stack do it. You’re running hot. A pair is a strong hand, but it’s better to fold if you don’t want to get knocked out early. Remember your opponent can have quads after ANY flop

Stack size is really what makes it an all in or less. If I am 1st in the pot and have less than 15BB I will consider going all in right away. 10BB or less its auto shoved in for me. If I have 100BB i would never be all in pre flop. I can raise or even call a raise or 3bet here but 100NN deep I would never go all in. There are some players who will gamble ealry on but I play poker and that deep its not poker.

Having an advantage in the stack, you can consider ollin in some situations.Each ollin before the preflop is a roulette-from this the conclusion is that it is worth considering the bets and not the ollins in the game.

It depends on stack size and ICM (if you're in a tournament) There's spots where medium pocket pairs are an insta-shove and spots where you should bassically only be going all in with KK+ AK

Under certain circumstances, going all-in with a pocket pair of cards below ten is quite normal and profitable !!!

Depends entirely on the scenario you face if you should go all in with these hands. A one size fits all answer it not what you should be looking for imo.

hello

That depends on the game, the position, the stak of chips you have, it is in your consideration, if you have par 88 to be able to enter and see the flop tranki do not despair that plays you find !!! more in decisive instances because many cards are dominating you because it is a small pair !! After the pair of 10 is dangerous because it agrees with many premium cards you also have to play them moderately from my point of view then each one makes the decision they prefer !!!

yes, try to see a cheap flop and see if you hit a set. maybe it might be a good option to go all in with 99 or less deep in a tournament if you feel you have the edge and position over your opponent. but other than that its not a good idea to risk all your chips preflop with 99 or lower.

If you get called when shoved, you probably will face a strong hand, depend on the situations at the game, who can call you, stack sizes, you should do it.

It's all about the situation, for example if there is a player that keeps going allin. I may take a chance with a low pocket pair and assume that the other player can't have good hands everytime they are going allin.

The question of going all in with pocket 10's 9's 8's is like every other general question concerning poker. If you give more specifics you will get more specific answers I guess but with the details given if you auto piloting any given hand, I would say simply consider other players calling range to start with.

having Luck is the only option there are no more options

I lost KK`s and AA`s or more bad like JJ`s or QQ`s so many times that is the only experience you can get

Luck beats Skill and that destroying strong!!!

sometimes it is so Bingolike that i really want to play a game like blackjack with Betoption that would be more fair so the best hands win ...

Yes of course you should stop this is a better mistake to see if you make a set and without losing to straight and flush but sometimes it depends if it's a KO tournament and you have 100BB and a single player with 10BB goes all in I think it's worth the Too bad you go with your pair of 9s in an all-yes, but betting all your chips UTG 1 or 2 or 3 with a pair of 99 or 88 or 77 I think going too far.:):D;)

Hello, I am of the same opinion as the majority here, it all depends on what size your stack is, if you have 15 bb or less then most likely you need to fool, but if you have more than 15 bb then you need to play these hands on the situation! Of course, you should also take into account the stage of the tournament, if you are on a bubble, then most likely you need to think about whether to go all-in with small pocket pairs!

For PocketPair, no matter what the number,I don't recommend thinking of all-in.

There is no universal recipe for what to do with pocket pair... It depends how is your stack, what's going on on table, etc.

As already mentioned, poker has no absolutes (although some things come pretty close). Pocket Tens is a nice hand preflop, but of course it depends on the table dynamics, opponent playstyles, effective stacks and many other potential variables.

If short stacked (generally 20 bbs or less is considered short stacked), then TT is a really powerful hand. Certainly 15bbs or less with an ante (10bbs or less with no ante) is probably a profitable All-In for most scenarios.

Compare this to deep stacked poker where TT All-In could be just short of chip stack suicide though.

If a Heads up Villain has two overcards (KQ, AJ and so on), then TT is only about 50% here, but pre-flop All-In against a random hand, TT is about a 75% favorite.
