  • Folding Top Pair Q's and an A kicker

    Oof - I folded my AQ here on the turn after a big all-in raise and a shove of my turn bet.

    I figured one of them had a draw and one had a set.

    fold, what is the point here ?

    structure also very important, affects everything.

      That's always very frustrating. But just be thankful you only folded away 33% of the pot I suppose!

      So what happened in the rest of the hand that led to this spot Albert Hart ?

        The play was not the same as I had remembered.

        This was fairly late in a long (5 hour) online tournament. I was in the top 20% of players at the time of this hand. I wound up placing 24th out of 382 entants.

        1. I chose not to Squeeze Preflop from the BB with AQ. I show rsciero with a VPIP of 12 - which is quite low, - but I he had only been at the table for 19 hands. and I think we were approaching the money bubble, so I didn't want to make the pot too big.
        (Which is also a good reason not to call the turn shove)

        2. I led the turn from the Big Blind - which I virtually never do except as a bluff. (I must have gotten confused. ) If I had checked the turn, which is the correct play for me,, I should simply fold to the bug bet, and especially after a second caller.

          I much prefer squeezing AQo here to 7500 or so and calling off if opener jams; your hand is strong, but does not play well multiway and OOP against all these opponents.
