Default How Would You Play This?

MTT Tournament, blinds at 50/100. You have been playing tight aggressive for the entire tournament. You currently have middle stack at the table. You are dealt K9 off in the BB. 7 players fold, and two players limp. You raise the blinds 4 times BB just to try and isolate the hand further. Both opponents call.

Flop hits J,9,9 rainbow. SB checks to you. Since you have been playing tight aggressive, you decide to change it up and slowplay your set. Your other opponent (who has been playing loose aggressive the entire tournament) makes his standard pot sized raise.

To make a call, you would be committing half of your stack, and re-raising would put your opponent all in.

What would you do in this situation?

It looks like you started with $2K. Since they both limped, then only called your hefty raise, they probably have decent hands, but not premium. The pot is about 1500 before the pot. He bets 750 (2250 total pot) and you only have 1500 left. I would definitely go all-in and take it down right there. If he calls, you probably win. If he folds, you already doubled-up. I would not slow play this because the flop is coordinated for a straight OR they may hit their boat OR they may get two cards to a flush.

You defintily have to shove after he raises you because thats what you wanted him to do by checking and the pot is already big enough to take down. Plus what iceberg said about the straighting board.

I think though that you should have raised right out after the flop hit. If you where playing that tight aggresive style they probaly wont think that the flop helped you unless you had AJ, so if you bet they would probaly would call any resonable size bet and then you can shove in on the turn because the pot will be so big.

Go all in right hesitation. Then watch your opponent feel the rush, and contemplate calling with his J-x, or KQ, or low pp. Then when he does, he'll start crying like a little girl, and you'll become the champion of the universe, and all the powers that be will be in your command and lighting and thunder will begin to fill the sky as you cast your wizards spell on him and he'll beg for forgiveness and you wont give it to him b/c he was born a loser and always will be a loser, and he should die a loser.

wow, that took a sharp turn to a place my mind of craziness just took over. sorry.

In the famous words of the DRAGO because i've never heard anyone else say this. Just go all in right off of the bat. Your SS and I would take all of those chips in the pot right there and now to guarantee victory then risk losing your MTT. Sometimes fancy crap backfires to the worst!. What do you do is you check and so does everyone else nad a J hits the turn lol!. Best to take it down there to guarantee a descent amount of chips then to risk getting sucked out.


To the End!

Go all in right hesitation.

I concur with that. As soon as he raised, I would not have wasted one second and pushed all my chips at him. If you lose that hand, chaulk it up to a bad beat.

i think you have the best possible hand there.. you were possibly against JQ-JK-J10 or medium pocket like 10s or 8s... or against a Q10 draw..

i think re-raise or allin here is best option, the pot is big enough to take it there. the only possible hand that can beat you on flop is A9, but i would risk all my chips there without doubt!
