Generally speaking, we prefer to have as much of the staff in the same office as possible, but there are definitely some exceptions. The most common remote positions we have are for software development, but we will consider it for other roles as well.

    Comment | Jason Senti commented on Live Pre-Flop Spot
    Thanks a lot for the responses, everyone. FWIW, I did fold for reasons already discussed here.

    As you all know, there are always tons of spots you see in any form of poker you play, and I wanted to get an idea of how often others take these spots in MTTs. I realize this is a very difficult subject to talk in depth about as it is so broad and vague, but I thought it was worth a shot. Thx again for the discussion.

    Post | Jason Senti posted in MTT: Live Pre-Flop Spot
    The spot I am going to ask about is relatively simple, but I am hoping to generate some discussion with it.

    10k WPT. Not near the money, so no real concerns w ICM.

    Blinds 800/1600 w 200 ante.
    I came to the table very short and just got my stack to 40k (25bb). I have won 2-3 hands in the last orbit, but I don't think I appear loose at this point.

    Villains (intentionally kept generic as I'm new to the table at the time):
    MP1 - Appears to be a mid 20's, good aggressive MTTer who knows many in the room. So far frequencies are pretty TAG, but he is likely v capable.
    SB - Similar description to above but frequencies are loose/agg so far.

    I'm in the BB. All players between MP1 and SB have over 50bbs and are tight/straightforward.
    MP1 eyes my stack and raises 3.5k w ~120k behind
    SB 3bets to 10.2k w 150k+ behind

    We are in the BB with 40k and Tc6c. How often, if ever, do you ship here?

    My stack size is very good to open against specifically in live MTTs where you don't really see people 3b/f too often w this stack size and 3b shipping doesn't lay a great price (for me). The SB will certainly be aware of this, and I believe he will tend towards being loose as it is. I consider both players to be high intensity and paying attention to these things.

    That said, it is still a decent-sized parlay to expect both players to be wide enough for a shove to be profitable w T6cc.

    If you are against the shove, what would you shove? Do you take the spot with QJs, Axs, 44?

    I know this is super read based, flow/image dependent, etc. I don't necessarily expect to get a for sure answer to this hand specifically. Really what I want to talk about is how often you tourney sickos make low to zero equity "big" moves. Granted, this is only for 25bb and all preflop, but tourney life, blah blah. How strong do your reads need to be? How often do you deviate from a more standard strat (including widening value ranges vs opponents, etc) and make big "gut-based" plays?

    I have had a number of convos with very good players about trusting your gut at the table, and I believe it has a lot of merit. ZeeJustin had a great post on 2p2 about that years ago. I am far more experienced in cash as well as talk to mostly cash game players, so I would like to hear thoughts from MTT guys about how you handle it in tourneys.

    Sorry that was so long, but that's what I do.

    FWIW, I would 3bet this a lot too. I didn't use to, but I am very happy to do it now. While it may not play great vs a 4bet, it plays very well in a 3b pot and is a top 5% hand. It plays fine multiway, but I don't think its an amazing situation and we will have nearly 60% equity preflop and great playability if we iso the CO opener. It is going to depend a lot on table dynamics and who the CO/blinds are, but I'm sure I 3b more often than I flat.

    Whether or not to have a turn raising range is interesting. There are many spots in PLO where we have to be concerned about our turn flatting range leaving us too weak on the river, but I am not convinced this is one of them. Villain cbet into 4 people on a rainbow flop and we called with 2 left to act behind. By the time we call the turn too, our range is very strong. I think we can comfortably play our hands as if they are in a vacuum and we will end up with pretty reasonable ranges.

    A rough makeup of our turn continuing range is: AAxx, KKxx, 77xx, AKxx, QJTx, A7xx, AQJxdd, AJTxxdd.

    There may be a few more hands in there, but in general we are going to be so strong in this spot that I am just going to worry about what I think is highest EV in any given spot. We should still end up with plenty of hands that call river when the flush hits and when the board blanks. The only cards I'm guessing we are a bit weak on are the non-diamond straight cards, but that is nitpicking.

    That said, I think I am usually shoving this hand, shoving QJTdd (this one is debatable), calling with AAxxdd, 77xx, and the rest will probably vary a bit.

    As always, I am open to being convinced that I am wrong, but this makes sense to me.

    +1 to what Phil said.

    Joe, I think I disagree that donking with KK is clearly the best river play. I actually think c/r'ing is the best play. A lot of villain's calling range on the river when we donk will be AAxx when he 4bets pre, and that will always bet. When we check, we also get money from the times he gets to the river with air if he 4bets wider than AAxx (which you 2 disagree upon) as almost everyone would take this bluff spot. Even if he almost never has air, he will bet/call some % of the time making c/r > betting unless there would be a huge difference our sizing. It is worth noting that I still like the c/r as a bluff even though I think a c/r is best for value as they can both be profitable. Just be sure to make sure you have a read that he is a good hand reader and can make hero folds. We need him to fold a little better than 45% of the time and we beat all bluffs, so you have to be pretty sure he can bet/fold AA getting that price.

    One other thing. If Sam believes that villain is 4betting him "much wider" than AA what do you guys think of the 3bet in the first place? I would pretty much always be calling in the BB.

    Hey Di! Your description of his turn potting range makes me want to just get it in on the turn as we should have good to great equity vs a draw heavy range. I could definitely see an argument for calling if our plan was to call a pretty high % of rivers (maybe folding vs some diamonds). I don't have any experience playing against Gus, so you would know better than I would, but do you really expect him to give up with his missed draws on river blanks? I'm not convinced that we look like we are always calling the river as we would be expected to just get it in with a lot of our stronger hands on the turn when he pots. This is especially true of the more vulnerable hands like 7x and straights. When we call twice, I think we can be perceived as having a pretty large amount of draws and medium strength hands that may fold to a river shove on a blank, and he will be getting a great price on it.

    Based on Phil's original description of the hand and Gus's range, my instinct is to shrug shove or call and call most rivers, but I'd have to run some sims to have a better idea. Without running sims I am not too happy with any decision.
