This question needs more details. Most of the time an all-in would be in order. My style is unique. I will fold QQ preflop more often than most people. If you have a good read on others in the pot and feel they have AK, AA or KK then I may fold. Also if there are 2 or more others in the pot and I feel someone is going to hit an overcard I may also food then too. 10 big blinds can actually be a large enough stack to stay around for a while and pick a spot you may feel better about moving in with. Such as AQ against someone holding an ace with lesser kicker. 10 big blinds in a tournament is good for at least 6 more rotations so despite anyone may say it's a decent amount of chips.
without thinking I would go allin ... as someone before me said, a hand pair is a hand pair ... on each card it can be lost, and on two AAs ... but we must not allow them to get their hands on stupid cards ...
Definitely a shove for me! If you drop it is painful, but still a correct shove with 10BB. You shouldn't look at the result when you fly out.
The alternative is that you fold yourself into the money or final table, but you hardly have any chips left to do anything. If you fold QQ in this situation, you won't be a winning player in the long run and give away a lot of money.
You have to shove QQ in this spot. Close your eyes and do it! You are probably already in the money so the ICM pressure is not as great so with 10 bigs you would actually be wanting to shove a lot worse hands than QQ depending on position. The pay jumps around making final table usually aren't that big. Top 3 is where you want to be now you are ITM so you pray for a hand as good as QQ to be able to shove in a spot like this. Go for it, get the double up and play to win.
The all-in is clear. With 10 BB stacks, it's also worth going all-in with a much weaker hand. Because you can toss the cards in a row to slip into the final table, but it doesn’t make much sense to fall out right there because you’ve run out of stacks so much.
Once you’re at the final table, you need the chips to win, and with a couple of BB stacks, it’s almost impossible to win the tournament.
I guess it depends on the way I feel about the hand and the history of the table! There are some situations on PokerStars where the system will give some guy everything just to take your bankroll,he can even have 7 2,it will still beat you!I tried once and went all in every hand,you won't believe what rags I had and won against QQ and all the other strong hands!In conclusion you just have to go by gut when it comes to all ins in online poker,especially PokerStars.Peace and good luck guys!
We are very close to the final table in a $ 300 Mtt CardsChat tournament in pokerstars your cards are QQ Preflop and you only have a Stack of 10BB would you play all-in?
Well very interesting definitely it has happen to me that kind a situation I think that is all in every time although cause in that spot you want to double up to try and fight for the 1st place cause 20BB is kind of better to fight on FT than reaching FT and having only 4-5 blinds... of course you could fold if there are other player with 1-2 BB and u are on FT bubble and even this situation fold only if other person has gone all in before you if not the play is all in every time bumping into AA,KK,AKs is a cooler is part of the game but most times you'll win...
better luck next time me instead haven't even reach ITM on the weekly 300$ hehe see ya on the tables! Remember my advice unless you're playing against me then fold every hand even Aces xD
You have to read some articles about Nash Equilibrium in poker. When you are short stacked your decisions will be easy, you have to JAM or FOLD when I say short stacked it means anything below 20bb, because you don't have much room to manover. if you have 10bb like in this exemple you can't just limp cause it will encourage more player to limp behind and there you'll be in trouble. if you raise x2 to x3 you will invite weaker aces to action and they will hit their ace about 33% of the time. so best option is to JAM
In theory, the wider our opponent's 4-bet`s range is — the wider we can push. In addition to the chances of winning a potential bid, we have a fold equity. If the opponent is very much 3-bet and 4-bet in this session, then you have a legitimate right not to believe that he always has a strong hand. Maybe he was just bluffing more. In this case, we can assume that its 4-beta range is wider than usual, and, accordingly, it is wider to push its 5-betas. Those who don't take risks don't win tournaments. )))
