    3 intresting hands from my 125 Gold Nugget tournament today. Results in a day or tw0

    Hand one

    blind at 50/ 100 everyone at the table is around 12k in chips as there hasn't been a lot of big hands, played to this point.

    I'm in the big blind and look down at two pretty Laddies ( ). I have 6 limpers to me at this point, I decided that this simply won't do and I pop it up to 500, I get one caller from a guy who hasn't played a hand yet. Needless to say I'm going to play the hand pretty cautious from this point foward. I'm putting him on A-10 suited(prolly not) AJ suited (maybe) A-q (I have two highly doubt it.) AK (seems reasonable) AA-JJ ( Perhap) He just called my 500 though so in my mind AA-KK are prolly out, Then this flop comes out.

    --

    The pot is sitting at about 1400, He checks, I fire in 1k, I want to see where I'm at. Maybe a bit on the highside, maybe not. He tanks for a while and finnaly calls. At this point I eliminate AA-KK, and have him on AK-AJ

    The turn is a The pot is sitting at 3400,

    He checks I throw in a bet of 2200. He insta shoves, I take a slow breath and start to replay the hand in my mind. I don't think he is going to make this play with AK, as he seems like a competent player up to this point. I have shown strength the whole way through the hand. Want should I do?









    HAND 2

    Another hand that happened at that level that I found intresting I'm on the button with There have been 5 limpers and I think why not, 100 to perhaps flop a monster, SB and BB complete and we go into the pot 7 handed.

    Flop



    GIN!!! but a nasty flush draw. UTG+3 leads into the 700 dollar pot with a 400 raise. Folds around to me, The sb has prematurly thow in his hand and the Big blind asked the waitress where the restroom is. I'm pretty sure I'm just up against the one guy and with the nuts I don't really want scare him off so I smooth. (Righ play I don't know A reraise might have been in order to define my hand, and with 1100 in the pot it isn't horrid to pick it up. But, with the nuts you want to milk... the flush draw is scary though I think I should have re poped.)

    Turn



    so 1500 in the pot and he fires in 800, I tank for a while and now realizing my error decided I need to price him out in all likely hood of a flush draw. The only problem is now a q alone completes the straight. I reraise to 2k, He insta shoves. What should I do?





    Hand 3

    100-200 I'm in the bb and have about 7k in ships. After having donked some off the hand before. I look down at . UTG a tight player raises to 300. and 5 player limp behind him... I decide with 1.5k in chips in the middle I'm ok with taking the hand down right now and raise to 2k,folds around to a player who arived late and don't know that well, he reraises to 4k. so now, I sit back and start to think. He hasn't played a lot of hands what can he have I come up with AA, AK, QQ. There is 1300 in the pot from the players, 4k from him and 2k from me. Folding is out of the question, I can smooth call making the pot 9,300 leaving me 3k behind. If I shove and he calls I'm getting roughly in my math hope it's right 4-1 so, my call makes the pot 9,300 my all in makes12,300 his call makes it 15,300. so in my mind 3000 more to pick up 15,300 if he calls, and a nice pick up if he folds. Even if he does have the dreaded AA I'm 20% to win the hand. Seems to me the odds are right. What should I do? Shove or smooth?

    If I smooth and A comes on the flop I have 3k left to play with, not in great shape but playable.

    Hand 1. Insta shove usually expresses weakness, while I dont put it past a bad live player to play AJ this way I dont get away from this set and def call. I assume this is a fast structure like most 100+25$ are.

    hand 2. I call only thing that beats you is AQ and if youre going to play KQ there isnt a board you'd rather see. I repop on flop but as played def call the shove on the turn. I imagine 2k is a good portion of your stack at this point depending on how you played the QQ hand..

    Hand 3. I never fold KK pre in a fast structure.

    Hand 1 : I'm assuming he has a hand like J-10, probably suited. He was willing to see the turn with 2nd pair and a gutshot. It is easy to call the shove in the heat of the moment (I was in a similar position last week at the Borgata Summer Poker Open), however, a fold is in order here. I doubt he is shoving with anything less than top set but even that seems unlikely with a straight on the board.

    Hand 2: Not sure what Kq on the turn was meant to be??? Anyway, I snap his shove. Probably chopping. If he has AQ so be it.

    Hand 3: Ship it pre. Really don't think it matters. He can't fold pre or post for $3k more and neither can you.

    hand 1: His range is def weighted to jt kj aj qj...just way more combos than any sort of sets that we beat (which he'd hardly ever c/r with 4 to straight). not sure why we are betting the turn here? what can we get two streets of value from anyway? check turn and make our decision on the river if he bets. and we can still get value from his two pairs and sets on the river if he checks. the flop sizing was good fwiw he's going to connect on that board quite a bit, so a bigger size is in order. as played, dude always has a jack, he's never c/r with two pair and rarely, if ever, a set.

    hand 2: it's a call. it doesn't make much sense for dude to limp in pre and lead at that flop with aq into a bunch of players on that board (except AhQh maybe), it'd be really random. is it possible..yes. but again his range is def weighted towards qj kq qt q9s.
    side note: have a plan for the hand. If you're not going to call a shove or if you're going to feel it's a tough spot. just avoid the "tough" spot and call the bet it'll make life a lot easier. you have position use it. raise with air and nut hands, not the hands that'll put you in a tough spot if you're reraised.

    hand 3: just get your money in. guy isn't folding.

    In the first hand, I would check behind on the turn, then call his river bet.

    In the second hand, I think a small flop raise is best. Sorry, but I am not sure what the turn card was.

    In the third hand, I think you should definitely re-raise pre-flop, and do not consider folding to a shove.

    Hand one

    after reviewing the hand in my head over and over again I ask the guy if I fold if he will show. He says sure and shrugs. I degrudginly throw my trips into the muck. He flips over AJ and I give myself a little pat on the back.


    Hand 2.

    I talk the guy into showing his cards and he flips over AQ... I grin as I walk away from the table to collect myself and calm down.


    Hand 3.

    I say " I'm pretty sure you have ACE'S but I call anyway." Sure enough dude has Ace's GG I'm done.
