    What Would You Do?

    Here is another what would you do post. I like to pick random hands from the week and just ask what others would do in my position. Then after a few days I post the result of the hand.

    In this case I was at a 45 person Multi Table Tournament i have about 2 hours invested and this situation lands on my lap. Blinds are 300-600, I am BB, UTG opens with a 2x BB bet, Small Blind pushes all in. If the guy had not stacked me I was going to stack but he got it in ahead. You can see my stats for the tournament below me, VPIP/Hands Played and under that my BB left. The stats for the villan's are for every hand I have played them not just this tournament. It's final table and you are covered by both players. What would you do?

    If I am reading this correctly blinds are 300-600 and you have 30 big blinds......


    Auto fold. I would consider a call with pocket 6’s or 7’s and I would call pocket 8’s or better. I am pretty sure I would fold fives and under.

    This is an easy fold, at best you are flipping or worse, dominated. No need to gamble in this spot.

    gotta agree, I would need an obvious read in this situation, like he accidentally flipped over his 2's before I call.
    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    So I thought exactly the same as everyone else as @djgolfcan put it "flipping or worse, dominated" I did fold. This is how the board ran out after my folder. UTG made the call

    I would have beat both of them in this case. But as someone once told me "Just because you got off the bus at the wrong stop and found a $100, it does not mean you did something right!" I ended up battling for another 20 minutes and went out 3rd in the tournament!

    14% is way too tight. You need to steal more to stay alive in a tournament.

    I was getting absolutely nothing this game and I was also watching a movie so I was not 100% paying attention. I am normally in the 25% range over 100 hands in the MTTs

    I also have a metric in my HUD that is BB fold to SB percentage. If it's over 65% it's an instant 3 x BB against them.
