View Full Version : KJ on the bubble - defending my big blind

07-22-2005, 01:37 PM
Is there not enough folding equity at the 20s to make this move? I interrpreted the big raise as a medium pair, a decent ace, or a blatant steal (steal probably less likely considering my stack). I figured it's going to be hard for villain to call with pairs less than TT, and stuff like AJ-A9 or KQ, although he's getting better than 2:1 on the call. Another reason I liked the push was because villain will still have 6bb and be even with the other shorter stack if he folds this.

I like it because he's in SB, if he does it from UTG or the button it's not so great, but so often these raises mean the grand sum of bugger all. I also do this if he completes. Teach him for not pushing.
