during the Mookie when at a table out of position against guys you know are looking to raise your leads at any opportunity - fourbetting A4s for over 40BB all in after
an EP limp
you raise your button
the small blind cold three bets.....
may not be the best idea, even if you get a tank call with AKo.... I guess I could get a fold from AQ/TT there, maybe, and that's about it unless it's a hammer raise or something... I just get an idea in my head that I'm getting raised light and can get laydowns in spots that only happen in live situations, gaak.
If I ever threeball/think about folding AK in a heads up spot preflop in a tournament for 40 blinds, just shoot me. Yeah, a fourbet shove usually is AA/KK - but I think it's QQ/JJ/TT/AQ enough times, coupled with random shite like A4s, that you gotta go with it and flip if you're reraising OOP without a huge read. I'd rather someone monkey off a fourbet into me so I can get it in and see all five cards than have them flat and leave me in a raised pot, out of position, with AKo... (hmm, that's good to file away)
Then again, I tend to seek out those "double through or go home" moments a lot to begin with.
Maybe someday I can run like Lucko - AA>KK all in preflop two hands in - after I'm done, shoves QQ into AT on a AKx flop and turns a Q. Instead, I flop two pair, turn and river complete flushes, I flop and turn big draws that don't come in, yadayadayada. I love the fact I'm actually playing everything else well this month - I hate that I'm flaming out on Wednesdays way too fast...
Hey, next week's an AIPS/Mookie doubleheader. Wonder how I can blow up in the most interesting fashion... :-0
EDIT: so at least I win Dookie, hahaha.... yay for Turbo HORSE and running just stupid good fourhanded to the end. Does $42.50 count for the standings, lol?
