This is a discussion on KJ was good to me for once within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I made it to the final table in two MTTs last night and kJ was very very good to me. I must have gotten kj
I made it to the final table in two MTTs last night and kJ was very very good to me. I must have gotten kj a dozen times 😭 n the span of @45 minutes and was lucky enough to win the majority. Just thought it was funny. I am constantly avoiding this hand in early position and was getting frustrated with the 40+ blinds all in from villain preflop.
KJ is interesting in tournaments because I think broadly it's overplayed early in tournaments and underplayed in many situations in later stages. It has like 45% equity against the top 15% of any opponents range. I'll take a lot of steal attempts with odds like that. And double up attempts when the time comes that I really need one.
You had a good run of luck for that tournament, but be carfull in the future with KJ , specially unsuited. It is not exctly a premium hand. you are probably an underdog to a lot of preflop raisers or callers.
Each player has different days and different situations.
There are days when we are luckier than usual, and on such days we should make the most of this opportunity. But in general, you should never lose vigilance because sooner or later it will lead to losses.
I think KJo is not enough strong to open at the early position but I will open with KJs at any position unless my stack is very short.
