In a vacuum I would say push pre-flop. But HU play is pretty much about everything but the cards and analyzing hands in a vacuum is pretty useless.

I quite like it, he doesn't have an ace anyway, but that big blind must be a killer, t3000? He's surely all in preflop with that. LOL. Seriously I would just push preflop assuming the blinds are 150/300 and not 1500/3000..

I would have pushed pre-flop.
If I mistakenly didn't push pf, I push the flop.

I think you played exactly how I would Scuba.

Induce bluffs from weaker hands rather than make them fold by raising as the others suggested...I might move in on the turn here...(don't remember the hand action if you did or needed too...)

sure it has some associated risk involved - and you could be behind...but the % of times you win here (in my limited experience) is FAR GREATER than the # of backfires and the # of times you're behind combined together...IMO

**pats self on back**

I am just pushing this in a 8000 chip game.

I assume you call the flop with the intention of pushing on the turn if villan doesn't bet. I like that play however, when he fires again I think you could let it go if you both had more chips, but here with t1300 left I think he's making a desperation bet trying to get you to fold often enough that you hav eto call.

"often enough" ?

I find that more often than not Scuba has his opponent crushed here. If I pushed the turn, its w/the intention of getting the guy out before he hits some [censored] bottom two or inside striahgt on the river to double through. NOT w/ the intention of "scaring him off a better hand"

But since we're the chip leader ... I'm probably calling him down as he won't usually get lucky and he'll probably keep getting more and more desperate....

What worse hands would call if we pushed?

I think you misinterpreted my post.

Clearly hero pushes the turn when checked becuase he is ahead.

My "often enough" comment was regarding calling villan's turn bet.

I've been doing that a lot lately...I think I need to get more sleep. sorry dude.

Also - I think I misunderstood your 'often enough' to mean 'when villain bets the turn - you're behind more often than ahead.' Thats what I was really commenting about. Probably another misunderstanding...
