Early stages, We aren't even 15 hands in and so I have no concrete reads yet.

Villain is ~22/11/0 right now if that means anything. He recently lost a big pot holding TT; he called a small bet PF and postflop bets to the river on a 8QQ78 board.

I haven't played a single hand yet.

well he's already shown in his TT hand that he's likely to make a move without the nuts. could easily be a smaller pair. i think it's too early in a SNG to be limp-raising AA/KK. i call here.

hmm normally would lay this down but wtf is he limp reraising all in with?

I'd give him a fav range here. AK- 1010-

Why would he come over the top with QQ+ to win a tiny pot?

He wanted to see a cheap flop with his PP and now is pissed you raised and has decided he'll show you.

Thats what Im thinking at the mo anyway. I call.

fyi villain called down the bets to the river, he wasn't making any kind of a move...

If he just lost that big pot hand, is he still pissed? If I thought so I would probably be inclined to call.

and the flopology is good for q's.......

My thinking exactly, lodog. Either low pair, weak ace or KQ or something like that. AA-TT and AJ+ most probably raises preflop, though people do do some pretty screwy things sometimes. It just looks to me like he thought I was stealing with position on the button and he wanted to resteal.

We're way ahead of his range here and I think this is an auto-call (at least I did anyways). Took me a few moments during the hand to run through it but he just felt so weak I knew I was dominating him here.

We can take the tight route and give the hand up and we'll still be stacked enough to save our chips for later, but I decided to call.


Results: I call, he shows ATo and I hit my set and double up.
