Default $30 NL stars blind battle.

I am chipleader by a good 5k and villain is in the top 10 in chips. We just made the money and 1 before the money I was involved in a blind battle against villain where I called preflop with suited cards and pushed in to get villain out when I had a flush draw, so I'm guessing he doesn't like me very much. 50 or so players left when 600 or so started, what are my options and what is the correct plan?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t1200 (8 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

Shoot. To. Thrill.

The only way I could allow you to just call is if you swore to me you would not fold this hand no matter what flop comes.

I think if you push he can put you on lesser hands and his calling range will be expanded. If you call that would around suspicion plus you might miss.

I apologize, English was never my strong suit. Let me try to better explain myself.

If I try to steal from the button, let's say for the sake of argument, and the BB goes all in on an apparent re-steal, do you necessarily put him on only a premium hand? I know I don't. I would put him on a better hand if I see him flat call (or min-raise/do something fancy) rather than resteal all-in. Therefore, I think it may be +cEV to push here rather than so a fancy non-all-in re-raise or flat call. Did I explain myself clearer or should I try again?

Alright, I've heard enough from people telling me it's an easy push. I figured it was too, and I instapushed from the bb and even faster than that, he called me with 55 and won the race.

The main reason I posted this is wanting to see if anyone does not want to race for this many chips, either against a small pair or against something else. I think his over-raise limits my options.

yep. easy push. you're way ahead of his current range, and you're about a coinflip with his calling range.. so it's slightly profitabe even if you are called everytime, and since you do have good FE being one of th eonly stacks that can [censored] him up.

Yeah, AK is a drawing hand. Don't want to take risks with a hand like that. [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
