View Full Version : Do you ever call here?

There was a raise every hand, I was never going to have a chance to get in there first, how bad is calling, hoping to triple up?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (6 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

Button (t2375)
Hero (t970)
BB (t3815)
UTG (t1690)
MP (t500)
CO (t4150)

Preflop: Hero is SB with A/images/graemlins/heart.gif, Q/images/graemlins/spade.gif.

UTG raises 600 to 800, MP calls 500 and is all-in, Hero?

It depends on what read I have on UTG. I tend to ignore the tiny stack when deciding what to do here since a call with 2.5xBB just means he has at least one card he thinks is decent. Having him there can help you as well as hurt you. I think it evens out.

I probally call here. You dont have much of a choice I dont think.

Yep, I call here...chance to triple up with a decent starting hand. I ignore small stack as well since he's pushing anything decent.
