Default Does anybody fold here?

It has been pretty tight since we got down to 3. Whoever bets first has been winning the pot and there hasn't been any limping or cold calling. Both players are decent. The chip leader has been playing the big stack well, but has sucked out with weaker cards whenever someone has gone up against him.


Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t500 (3 handed)

BB (t1570)
Hero (t3220)
SB (t5210)

Preflop: Hero is Button with J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="CC3333">Hero raises to t1500</font>, <font color="CC3333">SB raises to t5210 (All-In)</font>, BB calls t1070 (All-In), Hero calls t1720 (All-In).

Flop: (t10000) K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(3 players, 3 all-in)</font>

Turn: (t10000) K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(3 players, 3 all-in)</font>

River: (t10000) 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(3 players, 3 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: t10000
<font color="green">Main Pot: t4710 (t4710), between BB, Hero and SB.</font> &gt; <font color="white">Pot won by SB (t4710).</font>
<font color="green">Pot 2: t3300 (t3300), between Hero and SB.</font> &gt; <font color="white">Pot won by SB (t3300).</font>
<font color="green">Pot 3: t1990 (t1990), returned to SB.</font>

Results in white below: <font color="white">
BB shows 8c 8d (two pair, kings and eights).
Hero shows Jc Jh (flush, king high).
SB shows 3h Ah (flush, ace high).
Outcome: SB wins t10000. </font>

You were a big favorite. If someone had AA or KK, they probably would slowplay it 3 handed, so the only hands you might see that would stand a good chance against you would be AK, AQ or QQ. You're in good shape against all but one of those. I think you made the right call.

usually no but it depends on the money because if the thrid place guy gets knocked out and there is a big difference between third and second i might toss it.

I would simply push preflop.

I think I'd push here too. You could try to get fancy and minraise, but 3xBB is half your stack, and you never want to raise half your stack. I like pushing.

I think 750 is enough where you're okay with not getting callers, even with Jacks.

IHMO when it gets down to 3 danded and I have less than 10xBB live you have this is a clear push. Atleast that way you are puttiing the other players to a decision. The problem with not pushing here is that you are pot committed with any raise, so you will have to ( or should ) call an allin anyway
