Re: AK line check on flop and turn in live tournament.

My feedback to my friend was:

raise pre-flop was too small.

I would fold flop based on maths...

I call turn bet because my friend thinks the villain was bluffing a fair bit.

Re: AK line check on flop and turn in live tournament.

what stack size do you have? The usual rule of thumb for raise size is your normal amount +1bb for every limper so I would be raising to 1k or so

As played the problem with calling flop is you have dirty outs ie: A or K could give someone 2p so you really only have clean outs with a gutty, flop is proly a fold

Thanks mate.

I told him I would do 1k raise pre... cos of two limpers.
Same idea as you.

As it plays... your decision on turn?

Re: AK line check on flop and turn in live tournament.

Make it like 1500, people limping in a 100 live mtt are prob still pretty bad. We wanna just get max value out of our AKo preflop esp if we're against people calling too much pre. As people call too much post our AK value goes down cause we lose the ability to bluff and block some stronger hands.

Also what are stack sizes?

Stack sizes at start of hand:

Hero: roughly 30k ish...
Villain: Large stack. Way bigger than 30k.

Re: AK line check on flop and turn in live tournament.

yea id be folding flop, hes betting 2k into 4 ppl so its really strong, he has no bluffs and hes less likely to slow play the top of his range esp if there is a flush draw

Re: AK line check on flop and turn in live tournament.

Bigger pre for sure. As played we block straight draws so doubt villain is leading out with that. That turn card is interesting though, it's tough because what's our plan for the river if the 10, K or Ace doesn't hit? We would have roughly 23K left and I'm gonna guess that villain will probably jam or at least bet 8K OTR. If villain bets 8K OTR and we're not good we have approx 15K left which isn't too bad depending on the structure of the tournament, but it's not the optimal play.

So the decision lies OTF. As someone mentioned, he's probably never bluffing here, leading 2K into 4 players and one caller in front of us is more than likely strong. I think we're only drawing to a 10 where we can feel comfortable to continue and we really aren't getting the odds to see it. The question I have is are we getting implied odds to see it? If the 10 comes do we think we can get paid off enough of the time?
