Default Just started playing $109s. Two bubble HHs for dissection.

I started playing the 11s about 5 months ago, eventually jumped to the 22s, then quickly to the 55s, and now I've decided to try my hand at a few 109s.

At the lower levels, I find that villains aren't generally skilled enough to realize they shouldn't be calling my pushes with marginal hands when we are on the bubble. After an insightful post by Newt_Buggs (I think) I made some adjustments to my bubble play at the 22s and 55s, that seemed to work like magic. (I basically just tightened up my pushing requirements a little, so that I had at least *some* chance if/when I was called.)

That said, I want to make sure that I am properly adjusting my bubble play for the better opponents at the 109s. (There were 3 other 2+2ers at one of my tables last night. Ugh.)

I would love it if some of the 109 regulars could take a look at these two bubble HHs and tell me if they look healthy?:

Alright, the converter is down. So I'll just use hand numbers and you can refer back.

2359724064 - I don't like pushing UTG with weak aces, especially into a much bigger stack in the BB. The reason is that so much of your opponents call range dominates you. I would much rather push a hand like:
2359471469 - Look at the stack sizes. Very tough for anyone to call here, and you're almost never dominated.
2359475554 - Bad beat, sux.

I would probably call the button allin with KJ, and would almost certainly call it with A9. His range is very wide here, and I am fairly certain you are ahead of it -- the only problem, I assume, is calling an allin on the bubble. I would do an ICM calc but I'm at work and don't have the address handy. But my gut tells me that it is a call, especially with the A9.

Wrong. He has you covered, you are not crippled if you fold. I haven't done ICM either but it is wrong.

Is it really? Did you look at the surrounding hands? He really hasn't gotten out of line at all. This is a tough spot, but I find a fold here.

I am confident this is a clear fold.

2359449479 - K4o UTG+1 - borderline - can see a push here, but I suppose with 8BB you can wait a little bit, if you choose to.

2359458110 - K7s UTG - I think this has to be a push. But I guess with the blinds having just gone up people may see it as a desperation move, I dunno.

2359463821 - 75o UTG+1 - Again, borderline, case can be made for a push because of your huge FE

2359467541 - Ugh, A9o, probably not quite good enough to call with. But must be close. I however would also fold it.

2359471469 - UTG+1 76o - I think this is a push because the blinds are about to go up, as well as the big FE you have.

2359472791 - UTG T3o - I wouldn't push this, as you also didn't, as you're UTG and blinds have just gone up, more likely that someone will "look you up".

well shoot, i guess i'm wrong about the KJ.

i still call the A9. I put his range at somewhere around 55+, Ax, KT+, QT+, and SCs down to T9 or so. Like I said, no ICM, but intuitively we seem to be ahead of that range. Not to mention the fact that if we're behind, we can always suckout, which is always fun.

This is a great reason to call pushes. Please continue to do so.
