Merry Merry, Happy Happy

New rule

I am self imposing a new rule. No more putting all my chips in preflop with A2-A9. Suits does not matter.

Getting down to 8-15 BB's, I've been shoving with any Ace and that is just plain bad. I know that there is a place to do that, but I have been caught too many times lately and have to stop doing it. So until I can figure out the optimal +EV times to do it, my new rule is: NONE TIMES.

That's right. NONE TIMES will I put all my chips in with A2-A9 preflop. So if I shove preflop on you and you are holding A10, you are holding the MINIMUM hand I will have.

Can you fold KK?

Can you fold KK here? I think everyone would agree you cannot fold KK preflop. I've heard some people say they would on the bubble of a big tournament, but let's assume you would never fold it preflop.

I pick up KK in the cutoff and raise 3x BB. I have about 3500 in chips and am just a hair below average in a pretty big MTT. Everyone folds to the BB who calls.

Flop comes Q105 rainbow. Villian here checks to me and I bet 2/3 pot. He comes over me all in with about 300 more chips than me, so covering me.

Can you fold KK here? First thing I think of is Q10. 1010 or QQ or AA, and the villian would have reraised me preflop, right? AQ wouldn't shove, nor would 55. Now it is entirely possible he is on AJ or KJ, with the straight draw. AK probably would have shoved preflop or would have bet out to try and take the pot.

I just can't imagine any 0ther hand but Q10. I kept thinking it HAS to be Q10.

Yet, I cannot hit the fold button. Could you?

I called, he tabled Q10 and I went home.

Another winner

I decided to play 1 tournament and 1 only tonight. I had gotten 2 $26 tokens the night before for $8.80 buy ins. So $270 for $8.80 is a pretty damn good ROI!
