View Full Version : Bad spot in the BB

07-19-2005, 07:42 PM
So I was kind of lost in what to do here. The blinds went up on my SB and I hadn't been able to steal before hand so I am now in this spot. I doubt the BB has much, most likely a-x, or k-x and my outs could likely be tied up in his hand but is the in front of me to pass up?

Is this the last hope of a desperate man?

Also the BB was awful and I figured he'd fold unless he had a monster

time's a wastin', but i would wait until after this hand, when the blind is clear. you'll have 3 opportunities to open-push, or call with better.

Arent you in the SB? I would fold in this positon being in the SB. Even a complete donk might call with k high which still has you.

Hero has an easy fold? You have zero FE, may as well get in with a better hand than J6o.

I know I am getting called if I push

I push anyway... There's almost twice as much in the pot as you have in your stack after posting (you only have 660 left after posting... in case anyone didn't realize this). Your cards are probably live, and you'll have just as much FE this hand as any other. I think folding this would be pretty bad actually, especially given your reads on the button and BB.
