The Main Event
The 500K GTD was no easy ride, and yes, as expected I busted around 1200th out of 3,300. I basically didnt hit any big hands, stole enough pots to stay ahead and in the game and then busted on the following hand - I'm interested to see if other people would play this or not...
With T4050 and blinds at 200/400 in the BB you are dealt Ac3s, its folded around to the button, who has been stealing in LP just to stay alive, he moves allin for 2,400 more, its folded to you.
Give it up or try and take him out ? There is a very loose range of hands he can be pushing here, given previous behaviour. Calling and losing will put me in push/fold territory but one more raise in blinds and antes and I'm there anyway. Calling and winning will give me a large enough stack at the table to operate and get some respect.
These kind of plays have made the most difference to my tournament game lately, which is why I'm so interested in them.
I called, fairly quickly, he turned over Kh4c and it was game on
Flop Ad 6s 2d
!! I can feel it slipping away...
Yeah I know this looks like a bad beat hand history, but thats not what I want to focus on, its the preflop decision I'm interested in, not the end result - should you or shouldn't you call? Leave a comment and let me know what you think !
