View Full Version : $55 How do you handle situations like this?

No specific read. The only way I feel I can deal with situations like this is to push, make a note that says he uses reverse gap theory and move on. Am I making this to simple on myself?

I do the same thing and laugh at how awful his play was.

Tryiing to "trap" people with AK will lose you money in the long run.

While that is true, it also loses me money in the long run, no? But I guess theres not much to do about it huh.

Maybe someone with SNGPT can run this through. But I think pushing A9s with one limper is only marginally +EV

I'd only fold if I felt the blinds particularly loose or the limper particularly sneaky. Has he limped in strong hands before? If no, I'm pushing easy as cake.

With these stacks your fequity is less than you might think.

While it is a very poor play by villain, pushing A9s into a limping big stack here is a bad idea IMHO. He's probably calling with any pair and your FE is pretty low.
