Can't get the converters to work again.

Playing tight early often ends up with being short stacked later. Two players went out early, two more not much later, but I wasn't one of the ones who took them out. :/

Blinds are only starting to get big, but we're already down to the bubble. These low buyin STTs are limpy and I've been one of few people raising preflop at all. I don't think I've shown down a preflop raise yet.

NineLions ??


He could be playing back at me; no one has 3 bet a hand yet. Or he could be thinking this is a good chance to ITM?

It is as good as an all in, if you are going to play you have to push all in.

However personally. I Would fold that, and get all my chips in next decent spot I found

Bear in mind the bigger stack was acting after him, so unless he is a complete fruit cake, I wouldn't put him on anything worse than AK, to JJ

they amount he raised signals to me that he had either a pair of jacks or greater or ace queen or ace king. he didnt have much chips so i dont think he would have been bluffing with half his stack

Yeah, given the passive nature of the table I can't see anything other than a top 5 hand here, which I don't have much chance against.


I folded. A couple orbits later the button minraised my SB, I pushed TT, he showed KK.
