Here is where I chronicle my poker adventures on my journey to becoming a competent poker player. Don't expect anything too serious, but wise words from a fool are no less wise.
What's our M at this point? I think this maybe the most crucial part of the equation.Now that we are average stacked, I don't think we can afford races for chips, which is essentially what this is. Of course that is if we didn't run into the monster in the closet (QQ-AA). The only time I think I call this is when we are average stacked and our M is low, 7 or less, especially this being 6 handed, and we need chips because it's becoming a crap shoot.I'm sure this sounds nitty.
I am almost more apt to call with A-K than JJ here because chances are less you're dominated with something.I have folded in this spot before.If this were Bodog, I fold, because I want the points and the $T109 overlay. If this were a 45-person SnG, I might consider a call because I want to win it, not just take sixth for $15.You see the situation?Best case scenario: The open shove is A-x, and the button is isolating (for 1K more, natch) with A-K, and you're in decent shape in the race.My guess is the button has a pair, 6s to QQ, maybe even KK or AA if the Ms are really low, and the other guy has A-x.
I would kinda hate calling here because you might have to dodge a lot of outs at best.. But you are getting a good shot to double up.. It is half your stack. I guess it depends on how much of a gambling mood I am in I tend to think folding is the right move though.
