It depends what tourney this is.
If it's a freeroll then it's a reasonable play,you might get called with alot worse,and the initial raiser doesn't have a strong range on average.
I'd rather go for a more passive line though,even considering these things,just setmine and if you hit there's a big chance you'll get paid off anyway vs. weak opponents,not necessary to get it in preflop Smile

Golden rule of Hold'em: If feeling scared, go all-in.

Was this a misclick? You are not that low on chips, that you needed to make a gamble with a middleish pocket pair. You can't hope for anything better than a coin flip, when called here.

It's a "PCA Live FreeroIl"/
I was scared when he shows A 9 and then I saw the flop ))

lol yea that was my 1st guess, it must have been a missclick Big Smile

@uno1 that play, by dafault is a scary hand because u shoved from bb with mid pair Tongue sure there werent huge raises before, but shoving is a bit overkill in this situation, imo ofc Smile

Off course I don't play this way generally.
It's a "FreeroIl" and I play for fun.
In this games (It's a beginning) every table is full of donkeys, and they will play every hand.
When I have Middle or Low pocket pair I allways go all-in, so crappy hands (which could beat me) as 7T; JK; A 9 Smile should be folded most of the time.
In other games I play <TT very rarely.

Not really a scary hand when all the post flop play is all in so you cant do anything about it. It would have been scary if there had been post flop action but this is pretty mundane stuff. You must get scared pretty easily if you think this is a scary hand!!

In these kinds of tournaments(actually in every tournament) it is really good to try "gamble up" a big stack early in situations where you are 60% favorite, you even want to take some coinflips, because the big stack will give you later a big advantage in stealing blinds when the crazy players will be eliminated.

You don´t understand me properly, by flips I mean something like going all in pre flop with QQ and AK, because most of the times retards call you with hands you dominate and sometimes you are flipping. It is profitable to take these spots in big tournaments.

yeah you are right if you push medium to low pocket pairs and AKs or other Ax called then it is basically a flip, close to 50 % equity for both to win preflop.

Anyway for the hand, nicely done, I will stack sets and even if I lose i'll be happy to have gone all in with it, nicely played and nice that you did not bust!

I dont know you say that its good to take even coinflips on the early stages? How could I understand it other way Smile but I dont think that pro MTT players are going all in pre flop on early stages with ak Smile
