Good All-In with QQ?
Morning fellas,
Faced a difficult situation this morning. Pretty loose table, only 5 left with blinds stil 30/60. Only played one hand before this with AQo where flop comes AK10 and folded to an all in (turns out he was slowplaying AK). Anyway... to my hand:

Blinds 30/60

Hero has T535, villain with T3030. Other stacks are 430, 2875, and 1170. He's called some all in's already with awful cards and gotten the draws.

Preflop: I'm dealt QdQs in the BB.
Folds around to villain on the button who raises to 90. Havent seen any steal attempts from him yet, but again the blinds didnt really justify it. Anyway, I raise to 200. He pauses for a long time and pushes me all in where I immediately call.

I realize the blinds are pretty darn low right now, however by folding after his reraise I get stuck with around 300 and several big stacks around me. If there were only 4 left with a similar shortstack, I'd probably fold it. In this case though, I can't see getting to the money without a double up like this. Any comments? I'll post results later.

Re: Good All-In with QQ?
you raised it to 200 to leave yourself room to fold (i think.) i dont know he raised to 90 when the BB was 60. but moving on, i woulda probably just pushed and signed up for another before he turned his cards. :P

Oops, minor error to fix
Sorry, looked at the wrong hand history for the blinds. Blinds were at 15/30 but moving to 25/50 on the next hand. Now his raise might make some more sense. Results posted later.

Yep, raise to 90 is impossible with blinds of 30/60.

Call, expecting to be ahead about as often as you are behind.

I might have pushed after his 90 raise if he calls all-ins with garbage.

Villain shows AJo to my initial joy. Flop comes AK6 to my dismay. No luck on the turn. Adds insult to injury with a J on the river. Next tourney please...

Re: Good All-In with QQ?
You made the right call.

In this situation though why raise 200? You are pricing him in to a ton of hands at 3:1 (any A and any K) AND you have no leverage after the flop with only 335 chips. Why not raise more (like all in)?

I'm in every time with such a small stack.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 01:05 PM.
