Hi there! I'm very interested too. However, I'm not nearly as experienced as most of you guys. I've been playing seriously for half a year, so I'm still kinda new :)
I study every other day, as I am currently in high school.
I understand if you need more experienced players.

Anyway, if you are interested, my email is: [email protected]

Hope to hear from you!

Hi there!

Lately, I've been wondering what to do with low to middling pocket pairs and AX type hands in early and middle position. I know that they are mostly shoving-material when the effective stack size is around 10BB or lower, but what do you guys do when you have more than 10BB?
I feel like they are too weak to shove, too weak to raise-call and they are hard to play postflop, especially when out of position. I've started folding them lately, but is this the right play, or am I missing value?
I know that it depends on the villains, but I'm kinda new, so I'm having a hard time understanding differing shoving ranges based on stats and such. Also, in low stakes tourneys, people do all kinds of crazy stuff, so it can be kinda confusing sometimes.

Hope someone can help :)

Hand History | Oesterby posted in Other: Bad call or unlucky situation?
Blinds: t15/t30 (8 Players) UTG: 1,488
MP: 1,438
UTG+1: 1,458
MP+1: 1,849
CO: 1,808
BN: 2,874 (Hero)
SB: 2,946
BB: 1,488
Preflop (45) Hero is BN with 9 A
UTG folds, MP raises to 60, 2 folds, CO raises to 257, Hero calls 257, 2 folds, MP calls 197
So I decide to call because the MP and CO are very loose players. However, I think it might be too loose of a call.
Flop (848) 9 Q 8
MP checks, CO bets 424, Hero calls 424, MP folds
I call with hopes of drawing the nut flush.
Turn (1,696) 9 Q 8 9
CO bets 848, Hero raises to 2,189 and is all in, CO calls 275 and is all in
Turn comes a nine which gives me trips, a draw to a full house and the nut flush draw. CO bets and I decide to rip it in.
River (5,008) 9 Q 8 9 4
Final Pot BN lost and shows three of a kind, Nines.
CO wins and shows a straight, Eight to Queen.
CO wins 3,942
In the end, river is a brick and I busted the tournament.
