what about A8? I mean we never get dominated by their broadway pairs and it's still pretty much AK

no no, our hand is closer to AQ, but AQ we are raise/calling. AK is like the nuts everytime, so we are raise/phil hellmuth'ing that.With AJ if we raise and get jammed in we have to worry about all the combos of AQ/AK, and then all the pairs obv.AQ we have to worry about smaller amount of combos AK. AJ, even tho its sooted, is just too marginal b/c if we get jammed on we are usually behind b/c no1 should be jamming worse, especially when we raise in EP
In my experience, if you're playing low-buyin sng's, QQ/AK might as well be AA.

So you're repping exactly 2-3 hands and never getting called by a hand you're ahead of. Pretty sure you should check it back.

really? seems 2 nitty 2 me considering it's the 11$ 250K.....its kinda hard to play post flop due to my stack so maybe an all in would have been better....
Jamming an M of 14+ is never optimal. I min-raise pre so I'll open this depending on table, but foldings probably standard. I'm a bit more loose, aggro then most so I'll prob open more than folding here but you are going to be oop a lot, folding to 3b pre alot, and put in weird spots so just fold when you have the bottom of your range and a stack size thats going to be tougher to play oop postflop.

I check back flop. All depends on certain factors though. I can check this back bc I balance it by checking back some Tx, pocket pairs, even JJ+. It all depends on your c-bet % and if your table will even notice your cbet%. I'm assuming that no one at this level is going to be aware of that so just check back and eval turn. Having the As helps more than most people think.

Live tournament question: When evaluating people at your table do you have a routine when sizing up the players? Is there something you focus on more than others?IE - Do you focus more on betting patterns or more on physical tells?Do you try to create a baseline behavior and go from there?ThanksJoe

I focus on what they are wearing. Any poker clothing, they probably suck a lot.

What they are wearing/age is huge. Poker t shirts are usually weak tight. Old guys are usually passive. Younger kids who handle their chips well are usually decent. Bet sizing really tells it all imo.

Nah, I just try to get it in pre here, and i think jamming widens your range if villian is kinda competent...but yeh
