Here's an example situation. Poker Stars \$2.00+\$0.20 Limit Razz Tournament - t200/t400 Limit + t40 - 7 players - View hand 3040826 DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter Seat 2: t2160 M = 3.72 Seat 3: t3365 M = 5.80 Hero (): t4695 M = 8.09 Seat 5: t2685 M = 4.63 Seat 6: t22273 M = 38.40 Seat 7: t2420 M = 4.17 Seat 8: t5865 M = 10.11 3rd Street: (1.4 SB) Seat 2: xx xx 8 ____Seat 2 folds Seat 3: xx xx Q ____Seat 3 brings in for \$60____Seat 3 folds Hero: 4 6 7 ___Hero completes___Hero calls Seat 5: xx xx T ____Seat 5 folds Seat 6: xx xx A ____Seat 6 folds Seat 7: xx xx 5 ____Seat 7 raises Seat 8: xx xx T ____Seat 8 folds 4th Street: (5.7 SB) (2 players) Hero: 4 6 7 A ___Hero bets Seat 7: xx xx 5 K ____Seat 7 calls Spoiler: 5th Street: (3.85 BB) (2 players) Hero: 4 6 7 A 5 ___Hero bets Seat 7: xx xx 5 K 2 ____Seat 7 calls 6th Street: (5.85 BB) (2 players) Hero: 4 6 7 A 5 3 ___Hero bets Seat 7: xx xx 5 K 2 8 ____Seat 7 folds If we can ignore the question of whether or not it was right for me to play my hand... (i'm guessing it is) It appears Seat 7 has 3 wheel cards or 3 to a 6. He puts in two bets on 3rd but then goes quite far behind on 4th street when he bricks with a King. He then has to call to see 5th because of pot odds. Not only that, I now know what his likely pairing cards are. So if he was ahead on 3rd, which he was, it led to him putting in a bunch of chips behind because he made the pot big and gave himself reason to continue. The question is whether or not putting in that extra bet, or indeed putting in 3 or 4 bets on 3rd street is really all that worth it? Does the risk exceed the reward or vice versa? I'm starting to think of someone completes, better just to call them even with A23!

This principle is especially true in tournaments, whereas in cash games it is ok to push our equity when we have it. The other reason one might want to raise is to push players behind out of the pot. In this hand though, the Q is very rarely defending the bring in vs 2 players, so the only potentially scary card a raise can push out is the 8. If the raiser has any 3 wheel cards, he's 55/45 vs your exact hand and at best 60/40 vs the bottom of your range. That is legitimate equity to push and probably correct in a cash game. In a tournament it probably depends on how deep you are and in what stage of a tournament. Let's say this hand got really spewy and the 8 reraised and you call; three wheel cards could then cap it to push their equity for 2 more small bets -- would that be correct? Whereas if the 8 reraises and you fold or you reraise for some reason, then the wheel cards just call since it's heads up so they could only get 1 extra small bet into the pot with a cap?
