This is a discussion on $.25 NLHE MTT: What should be my calling range here? 7bbs on the BB vs CO shove within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; PokerStars - 100/200 Ante 25 NL - Holdem - 8 players
Hand converted by Holdem Manager 3
UTG+1: 6,610 (33.1 bb)
MP: 226 (1.1 bb)
MP+1: 3,972 (19.9 bb)
CO shows : (Straight, Nine High)
(Pre 54%, Flop 74%, Turn 86%)
CO wins 3,144
The real answer here is not finding yourself in this spot. I know that sometimes it happens, where you get cooler-ed right as the level goes up and things like that. So I am aware that sometimes having 7BB in the BB is unavoidable.
However, once there, you're pretty much looking for any two-cards. You'll be risking 7BB for 16BB's - breakeven is 42% equity.
Against a random villain range, hero's range looks like this:
If we can actually assign villain a range, a very wide range, but not 1326, we should be jamming all 1326 ourselves.
Less than random villain range: 22+,A2s+,K2s+,Q5s+,J6s+,T7s+,98s,87s,A2o+,K2o+,Q9o +,J9o+,T9o
Gives us 42% equity with every single hand we're dealt
So basically, get it in here with ATC. The real solution is not being here.
