View Full Version : mtt hand - 77 push with a limper

07-24-2005, 02:19 AM
Late stages of an MTT. 41 left, 27 pay. The table has been tight, and I've pushed several times in the last 3-4 orbits. I've shown a few uncalled pushes (99, AQ) earlier, and that seems to have gained me some folding equity on my last few pushes, as I've build my stack from 1300 without seeing a flop. Also, the bigger stacks had been limping into several multiway pots in the last orbit.
Note that the pot is initially 1000 with the antes. Really easy push?

I would think that this is standard.

Id Push. Sounds like youve been pushing quite a bit and someone might be waiting to trap. But you got a decent hand and you need to make a move cause you wont make the money by hangin on here. Also I dont like to show when I push and dont get callers. If you show 2 good hands and then dont show 5 times then looks like your bluffing 5 times out of 7. Id be more inclined to call you. Anyway I push.
