In order to put context to your posts, I been trying to get in a few of your 9max Sngs. Just so happens all you were playing was 3max. Those are … fun, funny, and tragic … so lets just laugh together… ( and I only play’d 2 of them )
I do think they can be profitable both BRwize and Timewize, but with only 16bb to start with and that cut in 1/2 for lvl2, you can’t just sit back.
Personally I think you said, ohh great Sassys here this should be interesting. We dont normally play in the same circles. By the time in that 1st 1, the gotcha hand hit, I was up 400 and u2 were each down 200, and I folded. It was lvl2 so you each had 6bb.
ok, so you’re down to 6bb, 6bb & 18bb ( 3ppl ) … I’d certainly be happy to scrape the blinds/my BB here/free BB and grab the adv over 3rd by shove’n the 3s, especially since he bet out and might have a K, and might hit another … you want the K out now.
You tried to trap and the turn was a K. You outlay was 2bb, you have to shut it down there to a bet. Most of us don’t want to or usually won’t do that tho. Instead you spent another 2bb to call 2 more minbets. ( and lost )
In your 9max run only hands you were crusing did you lose, we said good, yet here 333 vs (u think) KK and you don’t pull the trigger 3 handed.
Im confuzed, you say you play cause its like the end of a 9max, yet you don’t play it that way it seems. Or am I misss’n something ???
I caught the next one when this 1 ended, and it seems you were bound and determined not to make the same mistake again. I was UTG, 1st hand, and as you put it we both had junk, but you were suited so not junk to me. I didn’t rep junk, I bet out 3.1bb, you 3! (1/2 stack ), I 4! all in, you called.
I couldda just as easily had AJ as I did J6, so with no hearts or a K you wouldda lost either way. Let me run you by with my mindset, ok Puggy …
With an alien there ( grey’d/sittn out ) , its now HU. 1st hand I wanna win even if just blinds, so I bet strength figure’n you’d prolly just give me the blinds not wanting to be all in 1st hand, and knowing if you reopen action with a raise, I might just do that and re-raise.
You decided to make it 1/2 stack with your raise … knowing if I bust you , I can maybee blind out 2nd for a easy 1st place, I decided to 4! all in. Its 1st hand so if you call me and lose ur gone. I certainly bluff’d UTG, but in that situation, I’m 4!'n you with any 2 cards, because I will play a bluff like I play the nuts.
If I lose, it took 1min to play, If I win it will take another 3min to Win.
I catch a Late J and take the pot and eventually the win. no biggie.
in a subsequent post while I’m typing this you say…
For good/bad Puggy, I usually play HU ( end of SnG/MTT ) 1 way. Shove/fold. I’m not gonna get bullied off hands, if I like my hand I’m IN, otherwise I’m OUT. Don’t ever give me free looks on my BB. Sure its higher varience than other ways, but I’m ok with that.
Its also how I play those 3max, pretty much any hand I play I am more than willing to get it all in if I like my hand or posistion. You got my std game for that format, and NO … while winning with Junk is a skillset, in this situation I’m not claiming winning this hand makes me a better player than you are.
My post was meant lighten the mood, and a tad bit of advise.
Not to denagrate you for your play, hope u know that.
