Re: *** Official SSMTT quick checkup thread ***

Loyalty cash race at local casino.
20 players left, top 9 get paid.
15 min levels no antes.
Folded to me in SB, 6.25bb effective. In 1 or two hands level up and I'll have 5bb left.
I think BB will call top 27% of hands (=any ace, any pair, broadways).
What is your pushing range here?

Re: *** Official SSMTT quick checkup thread ***

How does one configure its MTT graph? I'm new to this.

Are winnings in BB and net expected BB won the main thing I should be looking at? Like pic related:

Re: *** Official SSMTT quick checkup thread ***

This is early on in a deep stack microstakes MTT. Villain is loose and passive. I think I misplayed turn/river. I feel like he has a lot hands in his range than can improve to beat me, so I should bet the turn to avoid giving him a free card. Then when the flush gets there on the river, I'm not sure if my call is correct.

          1. and 2. are ok. Third isn't. You don't have implied odds to call, your hand flops badly and you are behind vs any reasonable range.

          Welcome to forums. I think you should just open new thread whenever you have a hand that bugs you. Somehow ppl don't reply very often to this one.

          I am in middle position i have roughly 10k chips dealt A 10 suited ( marginal hand) there has been only 1 caller from early postion UTG, what did i do in this situation?

          The table itself its been pretty much tight/aggresive, my postion aint that bad so i raise 4 times the blind everyone folds and i get called by the limper. how should i play this hand on the flop? i'll be in position in all betting rounds which is a advantage. Its unlikely hes holding ak/aq with a limp , maybe he cud be holding monster like qq+

          so for instance

          if the board comes A 4 2 , and he bets 3 quarters of the pot here , what is the best thing to do? float the flop? raise...or fold....

          the thing with a hand like ace 10 is the kicker if he does have ak or aq hes roughly over 70% favourites.

          First, off if the board comes a42 obviously I'm not folding when I have only 7 big blinds left duh, but thats just me. Anyways, Im not sure 4xing here is right.. I would rather fold. Here is my reasoning.

          Interesting hand here. Just starting out by thinking about all the ways you can proceed here.You can limp, 2x, 4x, shove, or fold pre flop. I am folding here.Why?? Tournaments are long battles and not every pot is yours. A regular is limping. What does a regular limp with id say half the time dog **** and the other half monster aa,kk,qq, ( he could have it dd) etc. You want to 4x so lets pretend this guy is limping a monster then he will shove over the top. You have to first as yourself how often is this guy limping monsters. You have been watching more than me. But more importantly you need to worry about the other players as well someone call our shove after you 4x. You only have 10 big blinds so in my opinion if you 4x here and someone else shoves you are down to nothing and have very little fold equity later in the tournament. So you have to ask yourself do you think this is a good last hand??? You could also limp here that would be choice number two probably, but I don't like limping that much it exposes you.

            Shove is standard here for a few reasons:
            • You have sizeable fold equity
            • You are flipping with a large part of his range
            • You are ahead of a small part of his range

            If you don't get it in here then you are getting eaten more by the antes and blinds.

            Given the bet sequence pre flop raise from BB, half pot flop bet, pot turn bet, shove river and the tight stats (altho 25 hands means next to nothing): no. Likely QQ+. You can't really have JT given your turn call. KQ is still in your range so I strongly suspect KK here. Stone cold bluff is a possibility but hardly likely imo. The K might well be a blessing in disguise as now you can get away from the hand whereas you'd have called a river shove on a blank and still lose to AA/KK...

            Both are ok I guess. Calling and then putting out a small blocker/value bet might work too.

            I don't like this call, it's a big shove from early position and you have a bunch of people to act behind you.

            A clear fold for me.

            does anyone know why the $2.50 180 man sng has 22c rake while the $3.50 (rebuy) 180 man sng has 20c rake? is it because it's rebuy?

            Is this an okay spot to raise? Or should I just be calling here? MP is a bit on the loose side and sb has played pretty passive just limp calling a lot of his hands and folding flops. only about 25 hands played w both at this point.

            Check/Raising on such a dry flop means you've got a set and a set only because there basically zero draws you can play like this.

            Calling is also better because you're not really worried about any turn and river runouts so if the turn checks through you can look to extract more value on the river.

            Generally speaking as you move up in stakes, rake as a percentage of the buy in moves down.
