View Full Version : ($22): Doing to job of the big stack, should I here?

The big stack has been incredibly weak-tight, so I didnít want to let the BB have a cheap shot at the blinds here. Also, Iím not concerned with the big stack in the SB coming over the top unless he has a hand. This ok?

If you want to play this hand this way, call don't raise. Calling accomplishes the same thing as raising, but puts fewer chips at risk.

I only play the hand this way if BS was intentionally keeping the bubble alive by folding to the shorty. Otherwise (IOW every time at a $22), this is a fold PF.

I raised so that I would not be able to get away from the hand post flop if I missed the flop. I wanted to play it like an all-in vs the short stack, while minimizing how much I would lose if big stack raised.

Even at the $22s, people realize that limping off 1/6 of your stack generally signifies that you like your hand and will call an additional 380 to win 880.

A raise is just bleeding chips. As it stands it is not worth it to even put a dime in this pot because the BS will likely take a shot at shorty

Fold preflop I think.

Against decent opponents I fold this 100% of the time.

Some one said to fold and the big stack will likely take a shot at the shorty. This is not true, the big stack is terrible and has not been playing the situation, just his cards. there is a good chance he'll fold, or limp-fold when the shorty pushes over top.

If I just limp, the shorty might push on the flop and I'll fold because my odds aren't good...I dunno, I just didn't like leaving it up the BS here because he was terrible.
