This is a discussion on $5 NLHE MTT Rebuy: $$5 NLHE MTT Rebuy: AA v Flush Draw within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; Hi guys. So Monday evening I was a an MTT with a $5 rebuy entry. The prize was a $50 ticket for the top three
I am not loving this situation, but its not often, that I fold aces on the flop in a 3-bet pot for 100BB or less. Maybe if the flop is absolutely terrible like KQT, then I find a fold. Or if its multiway with absolutely crazy action.
But on K97 2-tone, there are not that many logical hands, you lose to. KK would usually 4-bet, so its pretty much 99, 77 and perhaps K9s or 97s, because your 3-bet was so small. But he can also have a bunch of draws, and maybe he does not always 4-bet AK, and then he can have that as well.
So I would reluctantly call this jam, and if he got you with two pair, then I would see this as a sign, I need to make my 3-bets bigger to cut down on his implied odds. A larger size also gives more fold equity, which you want, when you have the bluff part of your 3-betting range.
