View Full Version : AQ in Late Game

07-21-2005, 10:57 AM
Aight, I've sorta fit AQ together in my head as far as the early levels go, but how about in later levels and short-handed. It has more value now (I think), but I still play it sort of akwardly. What's the best line here? (MP pushes on the turn, I call)

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t100 (5 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

UTG (t1315)
MP (t1380)
Hero (t1835)
SB (t2825)
BB (t645)

Preflop: Hero is Button with A/images/graemlins/spade.gif, Q/images/graemlins/club.gif.
UTG calls t100, MP calls t100, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t400</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, UTG calls t300, MP calls t300.

Flop: (t1350) J/images/graemlins/spade.gif, T/images/graemlins/spade.gif, 8/images/graemlins/heart.gif <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
UTG checks, MP checks, Hero checks.

Turn: (t1350) Q/images/graemlins/diamond.gif <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
UTG checks, Hero calls t980, UTG folds.

River: (t2330) J/images/graemlins/diamond.gif <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

Final Pot: t2330

350 in the pot, you could always push it preflop, if you wanted. I probably would.

i'd push pre-flop. that's a lot of money out there for the taking, and except for the SB who is almost certainly folding, everyone has at most 14x stacks.

after that, i think it's fine. scary call on turn, but i think it's right.

i think mp has ak, a9,k9 or 99

i wouldn't call the push on turn with that straight draw...too likely he has the 9 or 2pair and has you beat

I think I'd push preflop after the 2 limps.
