Hero ?


Button was very loose passive. I don't think he's raised at any point in this tourney.

Depends. Probably call with a flush draw, but I doubt just ace high or a deuce.

First off this is a push. Why would you want to see a flop? You could even argue that you should just muck it. Blinds still are small enough.

1. If he's loose and passive then you shouldn't be leading into him with a vunerable hand.

2. If he's loose and passive then you should be able to check it down or call cheap since your hand has some showdown value.

I am not a fan of the wimpy preflop raise. It's not bad, I think the way you played it will work against the majority of players, but if you have a read that the guy calls down alot I don't think you should be c-betting here. If you're betting for value, then you are basically saying that you're willing to put a bunch of money in the pot with 66 and going all the way to the river. This is similar to saying that you wouldn't have minded pushing and getting called preflop. Do you really want that four handed with a healthy stack? Or would you rather hang onto your stack for blind stealing purposes?

You realize the BB is only 100 chips, right? So you're pushing for 18x?

With a loose-passive in BB, I'd probably limp for set value/good checkdown possibilities with this stack.

I'd definitely shut it down. I just can't see him folding anything he called your pf raise and flop bet with. He could have a flush draw, but he also could have 77+, JT, QT, KT, AT, Kx etc.

After more thought, I would limp and fold to any raise. After the flop just shut down. I would even consider folding it pre-flop.
