I say it again, you are a really funny guy my friend always fun to watch. When i look at the comments and see everybody saying what you should do. But i have a compliment you have really became a better player since the beginning of the challenge, ofcourse still a lot of little mistakes but yeah phil ivey didn’t became the best ever without a lot of training and studying and a fkn lot of hours playing poker. Good luck my friend!
Why would you ever shove J10 off at 5:52? You are UtG 4 players behind you,with 1/4 or even 1/3 of your stack....Bubble did already burst so people will call a bit wide anyways? It´s so likely that someone wakes up with a better hand there and calls you. I mean your shove looks weak asf anyways :/ I play a lot of hyper 6 max up to 30$ i wouldn´t do that with a big stack....having a big stack is a luxury in hyper u can find way better spots to applie pressure there :) ( Button /SB Action)
Simple Truths :D Well i guess only time will tell. I cant complain about my Results so i guess im doing something right. I will continue to avoid these marginal shoves "HJ" in Micro-Low Stake´s and just fold J10 off there and play my big stacks advg from the later Positions. I will still open AQ and AK JJ etc because every other position has room for mistakes and will be shoving incorrectly and i take the risk that the bb can realizie is eq when i get the possible mistake from 4 other players for that. Players in micro and low stakes don´t adjust very well "opponents to play better" isnt that much of a concern.
I get what you are saying i might have to adjust when the Opponents adjust in the Future.
No, by minraising at 5-11b stacksize 5handed you open the door for your opponents to play better. The Big Blinds range will realize more of it's average equity since he now has an additional option to just call the minraise with hands like 48s profitably (which wouldn't be possible vs a shove). If you're not able to see this or at least think that I have the authority to tell you that you're wrong, at least trust better players like bencb, that they are right when they make the same statement. It's also far from being advanced what I'm telling you, so if you're not willing to accept things like that, you could have a hard time the next 2-3 years in poker by disregarding simple truths in this game.
I think if you shove there AQ suited or AK whatever you take the option from the opponents to make shoving mistakes. I would def open raise AQ AK JJ etc. I mean you want to play Postflop with them since u should have an adge against the avg player there. I get what you are saying though, still wouldn´t recommend the play though. Even if it is slightly +ev...you dont have to play gto in every situation. I mean if you shove AK or AQ there the Play is ok because you balance your hands...but i have never seen Karlen doing that in this situation.
ATo/A8s/55+/KQs should probably be his calling range. That alone doesn't cost that much in ChipEV, maybe 4-5k chips 13% of the time and against the other stacksizes we have a decent equity. Also 25-30% of the time we just make everyone fold, which nets 4.4k chips (that is way more than you lose when getting called).
The point is, mentioning "UTG" as a reason not to shove 5handed makes no sense. Just call it a HJ shove. Also "35bb shove" makes no sense either, it's just a uncapped shove for ~~33% of your hands to make chips. Most people would consider this an 8bb chart shove, as only 1 guy has 12bb. If some random dude thinks you are weak, then so be it - you just shove AK and all these hands too.
Yeah right the smiley at the end really shows my bad tone and i insulted him a lot in my comment. Like i said before the bubble i would like the play. I do play a lot of Hyper´s and i do alright. With a Player sitting at 18k at the SB there is no reason to shove there. Just let´s pretend you are the 18k player.. with what would you call that shove? This a 35 bb shove what hands do u expect there...i think it´s safe to assume that is a very weak range. I stand by my comment ,this is a spot you really dont need to take. And i said"You are UtG 4 players behind you" where did i say something about the HJ?
