98s 3-handed FT 10BB

Hi,

After playing this hand, I was unsure about the way I played it. Should I even have called preflop considering my stack size? As for the flop, I was fixated on going all-in and didn't even register that his CB size was small, I could have just called.

Anyway, here's the hand:

PokerStars - 3500/7000 Ante 875 NL - Holdem - 3 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

SB: 19.63 BB
Hero (BB): 9.84 BB
BTN: 33.53 BB

3 players post ante of 0.13 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.87 BB) Hero has 8 9

BTN raises to 2.2 BB, fold, Hero calls 1.2 BB

Flop: (5.27 BB, 2 players) J T 6
Hero checks, BTN bets 1.9 BB, Hero raises to 7.52 BB and is all-in, BTN calls 5.62 BB

Turn: (20.31 BB, 2 players) K

River: (20.31 BB, 2 players) 8

Hero shows 8 9 (One Pair, Eights)
(Pre 40%, Flop 32%, Turn 32%)
BTN shows J Q (One Pair, Jacks)
(Pre 60%, Flop 68%, Turn 68%)
BTN wins 20.31 BB

It's fine - there is definitely some fold equity on the flop so shove >call - preflop fine too

You can prob just open jam the flop instead.

Re: 98s 3-handed FT 10BB

A while back, I think I would have folded preflop due to being short stacked but I've seen ALLinPav do these calls with an even shorter stack and I started doing the same. Is it the correct play?

Re: 98s 3-handed FT 10BB

yes - mandatory call when pot odds are so good vs wide button range

I like open jamming the flop better than x/r

Figured I could either get a free turn card or get some chips from my opponent before going all-in. If I just shoved, he might have folded

Def calling pre. OTF the EV between x/shove or openshove should be really close. If the V is of the autocbetting variety, I prefer x/jam over openshove, but w/e it's closed. Well played ul.

Also lolled at "We want them to fold."

What's funny about wanting them to fold when we have 0 showdown value and 8 outs when called? I honestly don't get it.

Re: 98s 3-handed FT 10BB

I like the x/jam flop, unless V has a low cbet frequency.

V calling range is pretty similar whether you open jam or x/jam, I think. He's never folding any T or J either way, but you win an extra 1.9bb when he folds his Ax that missed and maybe even low pairs.

Re: 98s 3-handed FT 10BB

Fold is close to call. AI pre is suicide.

This call is like "Stop and GO". On this flop you must go AI. I mean with "donk" bet. Just shove OTF, don't check. As played, you must call, you don't have any other option. I mean vs this size.
You can check shove with pair...
