Well if a Q hits on the turn, this is an easy call.

Re: HU hand

I'm with Suited and woulda pushed PF.

That said, assuming I didn't push PF, I agree with you. I'm putting villian on a missed broadway hand. I think that you're probably ahead and would call the...

Re: In sight of HU S&G Help

To make it even simpler, if you're starting with even stacks but winning less than 40% of the time HU, once the short stack gets below 10 BBs, push with any two cards that add up to two or higher. ...

Re: FT $22: HU Even Stacks with 77, Induced a Raise, Now What?

I push. Short stack is >20 BBs, so there's room to play some poker here. That said, it doesn't make sense to call and even think about folding to villian's possible continuation bet. Push and put...

The short stack, unfortunately you, is 13 BBs. That's well within the range for an optimal push/call strategy. Thanks to dana33, eastbay and others, it appears that a 70/50 push/call strategy is...

Re: HU- What stack to blind ratio, do you beging a push/fold strategy?

It's not the ratio of the BB to your stack, it's the ratio to the short stack. I generally start push/fold by 10xBB.

If villain had pushed after your flop raise, would you have called? It would've been 1687 to call in a pot of 6087.

Re: 22 heads up and 10xbb stack

At 10xBB, I push PF. Even if I hadn't, I'd open push the flop, maybe except if I flopped a set with a non-scary board and might try your line.

Hey Landon,

We're doing the same thing. I can't remember the last time I played a STT. I've been playing only HU and 4-way freeze-outs on Stars for a few months now.

Re: 10.50 HU SnG- Raising to Get a Free Card with Bottom Pair

I rarely min-reraise, but like your line as an alternative to mix it up. I woulda bet more on the river. This line works only if you get good implied odds -- take advantage of it.

Re: $5 - Push this AQo HU?

I push.

Even if villian calls with only ATs+, AJo+, KQs, JJ+, you're at 45%. I expect that villian's calling range is broader, so your equity will be higher.
