I think just in general the overall strength of your hand against his hand range is enough that you want all his money in the pot. But I'm not sure.

If you're saying hero should fold, that's awful, and awful weak tight. Especially because we have no reads on villian. This is an easy call without thinking twice.

Re: What to do with JJ?

Given the stack sizes and description, I fold.

Moving in preflop doesn't appeal to me, and odds are not there to call and flop a set. Likely to be beat. Unlikely to make much money if ahead.

Re: AK UTG (super Tuesday)

Getting about 3-2 pot odds, I normally call here. Probably also some chance of running into a hand like AQs. I would probably fold against a tight player that respects my raises.

He stated that he often limps with AQ UTG, because it allows weaker aces to come along and play, where raising just pushes them out. So i mix it up and call.

Given the stack sizes and the dynamics, just fold and move on.

Re: Open pushing in later stages

So the question for debate is, when should you open-push all-in in the later stages of an MTT?

Re: all in or stop and go?

There's no way on earth I am using the stop and go in this spot, considering the wide range he could have. Give me a lower pp like 66 or a hand like A9 before I think stop and go.

Re: Difficult hand - all diamond flop, turned a set against the chiple

If he could be such a donk, the turn raise sucked unless we are prepared to shove the rest in. And I think that's a bad idea given how many hands can have us beat. We are almost giving the donk the...

Re: AJ in early position

Depends on the dynamics, but generally I think I'd push if there was an ante, and fold if there wasn't.

Re: K8o + blind steal => ???

I would just call his small turn bet. Works out best if he has range of a 5, K, J, or nothing. This will keep pot smaller and give us the options on the river. It is also congruent with my play when...
