Oh, yeah, I meant to add...Ignore the loose call pre-flop. I just felt like playing, and for t15 I don't mind folding to a raise.

I recall you posting a lot before in the MTT forum. Am I correct? I think it's hard to let go of playing these hands in the STT format. Just saying.

Given that you limped preflop, I think check-pushing is the correct move. I remember reading a Paul Phillips article about it on here once. I'm not positive if you should be applying Paul Phillips level play to an $11 SNG, but I think the fundamental logic applies.

Wow, great read. That was me, and that kind of limp is definately one of my MTT vestigal limbs. I've chewed off most of it (T9s, and JTs now go in the muck), but there are still a few bits left...

Thanks,

Sam

If it means anything, your MTT posts (and others like you) have greatly improved my MTT game. The more I play both, the more I realize how great a difference there is. Seems illogical on the surface, but it's certainly true.
