fold. jnr1j has told you that he can knock Kryptx00 by himself. Let him. If he succeeds, your equity in the tourney goes up.

Forget tourney, you've got AQo and there's a raise and a reraise in front of you. Short of any reads (that reraiser is super-loose), do you call?

yestbay said...

Matt Tag said pretty much what I was going to say. I will add that you still have enough chips after folding to be in decent shape. No need to butt heads with another big stack.

easy fold... what would u do with AK in that spot though?

Shrike said...

I would have raised initially to isolate ... as played, reluctant fold.



J. T. said...

Do you have any read on the player? If I read it right you have the button. I call, you have chips left.

The bad guy has a wide range and is trying to steal. I call.

Tycou said...

fold for many of the same reasons stated above. I would have also given some thought initially to have gone in for more, rather than call short stack's all-in.

Achiel said...

As stated previously, in slightly other words: you can't call/push here. Either you should've pushed or folded when action was to you, calling here is a bad plan, unless you consider AQ to be so much of a monster as to "trap" the people behind, which it (imho) clearly isn't.

Fold and move on.

"easy fold... what would u do with AK in that spot though? - Wel

Exactly what I was going to say. This spot with AQ is a situation where when I am steaming, I make a stupid play hoping that I am ahead or flipping.

Drizztdj said...

Easy fold. Unless you have a note "LAG-tard" or something don't even second guess it.

smokkee said...

i guess the reason you flatted is so you could get away from it if someone shoved behind you.

normally an iso-shove is the way to go. ez fold IMO.

Hammer Player a.k.a Hoyazo said...

Calling with AQ there is definitely a donk move. Only realistically possible chance you have is that this guy is overplaying JJ I suppose, and even then you're behind. Odds of him having either AA, KK, QQ or AK have got to be above 90% here.

OhCaptain said...

It's the hand of the devil. Easy fold, you can't possibly win with that hand so why risk the chips?

Fred aka TwoBlackAces said...

Ask Phil Ivey what he thinks of AQ.

As played, get out of dodge.

columbo (at eifco dot org) said...

Yup, a complete donk meltown when I made this very lame call. I did put him on JJ and figured (this is lame, donk thinking), I was probably close to 45%, but getting better odds. THAT, imy friends, s DONK-ISH and I got what I deserved... the rail!
