This is a discussion on overplaying the BB within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; what is your usual choice when faced with a single raiser and you have QQ KK AA AK in the BB?
do you call, 3 bet
what is your usual choice when faced with a single raiser and you have QQ KK AA AK in the BB?
do you call, 3 bet or shove?
I find quite a lot of the time if i 3 bet or shove in this position if they do not fold then i lose so I was wondering what other people's thoughts were.
It depends on the game of your oponent, the type and stage of the tournament and of course your stack (and oponent stack)
If Your oponent like to bluff postflop than maybe call will be the best way. Your range to defend blinds is very wide so he could expect many hands and maybe it's motivate him to bluff on the flop. Optimal is 3-bet, but as I said. There is no single answer to your question.
Depends on the agressivity of the raiser. In case if it's really agressive ,shove. I recommend to never call with these cards. Yes sometimes these players are hitting the flop even if they have nothing in hand but only in rare cases imo.
