We overview a current hand from the SuperNova PKO with our pals from The Chip Race the place we’ve got a tough spot with backside set.
Earlier this month I had a sweat session with the fellows from The Chip Race from after I performed the SuperNova PKOs on Unibet. I wished to pick a couple of of the extra fascinating palms for overview so right here is the primary of an abridged sequence of hand evaluations.
This can be a hand from the €1 SuperNova Nano, it’s early on and we’ve got nearly 500BBs efficient. Lojack opens to 2BBs, I’ve 77 within the Hijack and name, the Cutoff calls, the Button (who has been fairly free) raises to 12.7BBs, the Small Blind calls, Huge Blind folds, the Lojack folds. I am getting a great worth to name with a hand that may stack anyone so I name and the Cutoff calls.
David Lappin: You might be getting an ideal place to name in a 4 method pot so a simple name.
The flop is 79T , so I flop backside set on a draw heavy board. I wager 27.5BBs right into a 55BB pot. I might generally wager extra right here however the Button has been very free aggressive and I may see him coming excessive of me with plenty of palms if I do not wager a lot. Do you just like the wager measurement and do you agree with main out right here?
David Lappin: I might go together with a much bigger sizing right here, about 80% pot. There’s a excellent likelihood a few individuals right here have a bit of this.
Dara O’Kearney: Sure if you wish to get your stack in you do not wish to overbet a later avenue, so for those who wager about 12% of the Button’s stack right here you possibly can arrange a pot sized wager by the river. In regular tournaments I’m pondering of bets by way of the pot, in a PKO I’m pondering by way of stacks to win the bounties. With the board being so moist you may at all times get motion, so I might wager about pot. The robust attracts should not going to fold, 8x is just not going to fold, perhaps even prime pair is just not going to fold.
I like the choice to wager as a result of even a really aggressive participant goes to recognise this type of board does not hit them, so for those who test he may not fireplace. It additionally places the Cutoff in a tough place, if he has a hand now he has to name so that you get more cash within the pot than for those who checked to the Button and he raised.
The Button reraises to 137.5BBs, the Button folds, the Small Blind flats and I’m now dealing with a 110 name in a 357.5BB pot. I clearly am nervous about 99, TT and a doable straight right here and if this weren’t a PKO I might really be pondering of folding right here.
David Lappin: If it wasn’t a €1 PKO I might be giving extra thought to this however I do not assume we will fold.
Dara O’Kearney: I am by no means folding right here, there are too many attracts. This can be a very completely different board from say AJ7. Guys might be going mad with attracts right here and overplaying palms like AT. I am sticking it in now and we’re dropping a number of the time however I believe we’re successful a number of the time.
I do certainly stick it in and we get referred to as by the Cutoff who flopped the however straight with J8 and the Small Blind who had Q8 . Neither participant had a Diamond. We get felted.
David Lappin: Nice recreation Barry.
Dara O’Kearney: Effectively performed.
