6 max STT

Hello, how do you play these hands/spots?

1. SB looks like a regular, on 50 hands plays like 29/23 and BB is a recreational 43/9. My question is how would you have played your range here 12-15 deep? My plan is to open shove 22-99, mincall shoves with TT-AA, AQo+ AJs+ and minfold Ax, broadways, K8s-98s. Is KQo/KQs and and AJo/ATs better to push that to minraise and try to play with the BB? I think that the SB will 3b shove like 10-12%.

    BB: 1,000 (8.3 bb)
    CO: 3,776 (31.5 bb)
    Hero (BTN): 1,695 (14.1 bb)
    SB: 2,529 (21.1 bb)

    Preflop: Hero is BTN with T Q
    CO folds, Hero raises to 240, SB raises to 2,514 and is all-in, 2 folds

    2. Villain plays 57/16. When I have a top pair like Q, K, A and a weak kicker on a board like this I usually pot control OOP. Often they take a stab at the pot on one/two streets with hands that are folding if I c-bet. If the hand goes check/check on the flop I will bet 2 streets and I get some light calls because they don't put me on a Q. I don't think that I get bluffed much often on 3streets. I will also have QQ and 88 to protect my c/c range. How would you have played this spot?

      3. Villain is a regular, opens something like 70%. I have seen him double barreling pretty wide HU so I expect him to have not only 2 pair+ here. My plan was to try to fold hands that are ahead, something like 57 58 67 68 any 9 77 88 TT weak J KQ AK AQ some Ax of hearts/diamonds. I think that my line looks very strong (I will also have 87, J5 J6 J9) and that's the only bluff I have witch has a lot of equity when called. If you c/c on the T how do you play the R when we hit the 7, a diamond or a K? The pot will be 3250 and we will have like 2900.

        hand 1: id shove first in
        hand 2: the ace isnt really a bad card here imo. in these spots i look at villains river aggro %. Mostly still calling bvb.

        hand3: fine i think. altough i would ship it pre.

        1. I'd openshove. Your raise/call and raise/fold seem reasonable, I wouldn't have a raise/fold range versus the bb stack, so opening 98s and Axo might be a little loose.

        2. Limp pre. As played, checkcall flop and turn looks good. River, I'd be really suspicious, close but I'd fold.
        3. Reshove pre all day. As played, looks fine.

        At hand 1 Axo and 98s are profitable shoves if i put them in ICMizer so i asume i have to at least open them. Ty!

        You're absolutely right, my bad (I don't play stars sngs, so I'm not used to antes this early in the game, that's why I got my ranges wrong). My general point was to openshove hands that satisfy the folllowing;
        1. +EV shove
        2. Decent equity versus SB calling range
        3. Are not good as a raise/call

        So I'd prob include 98s as an openshove (or maybe it's best as an openlimp?) and A2o as a raise/fold to SB. But, you say SB is only reshoving 10-12% so it might be best to take some hands from your openshove range and put into your minraise range vs this SB.

        I'm curious as to how long you've been at the 1.5s too, please at least say you're crushing or stars sngs really are even deader than I thought.

        Ty for your opinions! I've been playing them for a week or so, also played higher in the past. I'm building a bankroll to move up asap.
