Is this a pretty marginal push or standard?

i'd push there.

07-20-2005, 05:16 PM
I make this push if I'm tilting, but it's probably not a great idea.

07-20-2005, 05:19 PM
borderline - I really prefer to play small pairs for set value, but I can see pushing....interesting......

07-20-2005, 05:20 PM
I don't like pushing that into 5 players.

07-20-2005, 05:21 PM
Sixes start to become my borderline area. I would push with 77, 66 becomes read dependant for me.

55- is folding.

07-20-2005, 05:21 PM
Calling here for set value is beyond bad

07-20-2005, 05:23 PM
Yah I agree, I would push 88 without thinking and I might wince and push 77 but these 66's seemed to reside solely in the gray area.

07-20-2005, 05:34 PM
OK....so if calling for set value is beyond bad, and 6's are too low to push....raise 3x blind?
Or what?
Don't think I'm folding.....like I said, it's interesting.

07-20-2005, 05:34 PM
It's a tough spot but you do have a lot of fold equity as well. I think it's a push for me, but yeah, this is very close.

07-20-2005, 05:35 PM
If you are going to get involved in this pot your only choice is to fold.

If you raise 3xbb you are forced to call a push due to pot odds. Max FE by pushing.

07-20-2005, 05:36 PM
I usually push here as well.

I would like to know if this is also standard, however.

Standard for me. However if I had 1450-1500 I fold, and if Im one seat further away I fold.

07-20-2005, 05:40 PM
tigerrite that is clearly standard. Anything other than moving allin there is terrible IMO.

07-20-2005, 05:44 PM
Yah, if I was in mp I wouldn't ask. It just seemed that with my exact stack size and my exact position on the table I really didn't feel comfortable with pushing or folding.

That's what I thought, just the min-raise crap is always a bit of a strange one. Never quite know what to make of it, other than he's probably a bit of a donk, but he hadn't played like that up til then.

07-20-2005, 05:49 PM
For me 66 is not that tough of a fold, 77 is a tough fold, and 88 is a somewhat tough push.

I want to punch people who min-bet/min raise in the face.

I also hate people like this.

And those who call all in with A4s for no apparent reason, but I hear you. Then suck out on your A8o, and leave you knacked and finishing 5th. Anyways, he had TT in the hand, so it wasn't a bad beat of any kind, but why the hell he didn't just push, I have no idea.
