How was my line with 88?
Level 16 8k-16k a4k
Folds to me in the sb I shove with A5off, B.B. called with KQ off. Win with ace high.
286k at 27 players, final 3 table redraw
In the bb for 16k, CO raises to 40k (I have some history with this player, we came from the same table. Earlier in the tourny I watched him shut down to aggression, he 3 bet and folded to a 4 bet twice. He also cbet every pot he opened.)
Folds to me in bb, look at 8c8s. My thoughts were I didn’t want to call the raise just to fold if I don’t hit the flop. I thought he could be somewhat strong but thought maybe I could get him to fold hands like AQ,AJ,A10,KQ,99, or maybe even JJ, 1010, maybe AK. He is obviously calling with AA,KK,QQ, maybe even with AK witch I am flipping against. I decide my best line is to shove for my 16bb’s (250k ish). He tanks for about half a minute and calls with QhQc.
Flop 9s7s5s. On this flop my money is going in, just wondering if the pre flop shove is the right line.
Brick the turn and river.
Out 26th out of 377
