Hero looks down at AJd with 38k chips and 5k bb UTG+2 5-handed, UTG shoves with 54k. Should I have folded in this spot or was I doomed to bust out?(which is fine by me) Itís late phase with 12-11 players left.
Seems marginal for me , I just want to point out that if villain open shoves Ax most likely he had you dominated and we are behind any pocket pair. The fact he is open jamming UTG indicates strength. If he did the same play but in later position like HJ , CO , BTN and you were after him to act then AJ is a snap.The later the position the wider our calling range because we are not afraid for the remaining players to wake up with a monster starting hand.
I used to light calling some same spots and I was losing a lot,
re: Poker & $Freeroll NLHE MTT Rebuy: Should I have called?
To be truthfully honest here, you're in a freeroll. These tournaments have so much variance and bingo-like moves it's just too hard to gauge. You made the correct call obviously, but it's a bingo and the V hit their hand and you didn't.
