AK near finale table

PartyGaming - 35000/70000 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players

UTG: 70.77 BB
CO: 41.15 BB
BTN: 60.7 BB
SB: 29.22 BB
Hero (BB): 29.47 BB

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

Pre Flop: (pot: 2.14 BB) Hero has K A

UTG raises to 2 BB, CO calls 2 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, CO calls 5 BB

Flop: (17.14 BB, 2 players) T 9 6
[color=red]Hero ?

No read. Would you go all-in to get back the chips ? And leave it like that ? What do you think of hero equity ? Villain's range ? And would you have gone all-in PF ? To me the endgame, especially near the final table is difficult. I know it is a mathematical period of the game. But what to do when you have few good hands and how to play your good hands ? Especially when you do not hit like in this hand.

Re: AK near finale table

Good spot for SQ AI. As played AI OTF. I know nothing about "V range". I think it depends on your play. How you play with some other strong hands. But this stack is small enough for shove PF. I have wide range for shove here. I will shove pre for some "balance". Against hands like KJs, KQs, AJs, ATs, AQ. Because my range is pocket pairs heavy..I will NAI SQ with KK+ and some hands with good playability. Suited high cards.

Re: AK near finale table

You could shove preflop, but as played is fine. I would just shove the flop. You have good equity and a little more than pot left.

It is a bad flop for an ep raiser versus the blinds, but it hits your 3! range. Could flop for 99+ and it might hit your bluffs too.

Re: AK near finale table

If this were strictly a bluff you are risking 22.47bb to win 17.14bb. The bluff would have to work 17.14/(17.15+22.47) = 56.7% of the time. I think V probably folds somewhere close to that percentage facing a 3 bet PF and a shove OTF.

Plus it is not strictly a bluff. V might call with FD or QT. Even if V paired the 9 or T, you’d have redraw outs, plus you have the BDFD. I think Cbet shove OTF is good.

IMO being close to FT is irrelevant here. It’s nice to make the FT but you shouldn’t pass up a +EV spot to avoid busting out before FT. Making the FT is not the goal; winning the tourney is. Don’t pass up a good spot just to try to make the FT.

Re: AK near finale table

Maybe I'm just an oddball but I disagree with most on this hand. I don't know why we'd 3-bet shove for 30 bb's, that's a **** ton of chips to shove with with. I could be wrong but that answer seems a bit results oriented (since we didn't hit flop). If more people had called the original raise, or there was a 3-bet before it got to us then I would agree a shove pf would be totally standard.
On the flop you're oop with 22 bb's on a horrendous board. I personally would probably check/give up. I wouldn't mind shoving a flop that's not as connected, a hi-lo-lo board something like q 8 2 or 5 5 9 etc...
Just my opinions.

Re: AK near finale table

30bb is too much for shove vs 2x. But still some players do that. Last time I saw a coach with 34-35bb shove, 44 vs MP , $500 MTT...Can't be so bad, if he do that.

I very rarely do that. If I am a chipleader at the bubble. BB vs SB as well. Vs loose BTN as well....Maybe..

But vs two guys you can do that. Imo...Squeeze...Also you can do that vs 3x.
