This is a discussion on Poker Hand from online pro analyze? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Blinds 400/800 antes 100 6-handed table
Button stack: 16,600 Hero stack(Big blind): 12,000
Button raise preflop to 1,600
Hero calls with :kd4: :10h4:
Flop: :10s4: :10c4: :3c4:
Defending here is not that bad. Folding might be the worst option.
But that said, I'm one for the 'unsuited cards are terrible post-flop', so I prefer a shove here.
On the note of what the button might have, a heck lot of combinations. He might just be steal, for all we know, i.e. 100% hands.
On the note of can the Hero extract more value, what do you want to bet? 1 chip? He's betting 1/4th the pot, almost min-betting (1600 is the minimum, remember?), with such a lock on the board.
That said, if there were ICM pressures, I might change my opinion (can also be as drastic as a, U-Turn, fold).
On the note of analyzing a PRO's thinking, PLEASE STOP TRYING TO DO THAT.
