Easy fold?  The only reason I could give myself to make this call is that he accidentally hit the wrong button.  I figure that I fold here and wait for better spots to clearly outplay him rather than take a gamble with a hand that could wind up being a coin flip.  Clearly, he's going to be an action player.

Final Pot: $5.50
MP1 wins $5.50


  1. I say easy fold. That overshove is a big mistake no matter what he's holding - chances are he makes more mistakes in the future - hopefully when you've got the goods.

    I read this in Harrington recently - I'll change the numbers to suit this hand "- if someone is willing to lay $90 to win $3.50, I say let him".

  2. He almost always has AK or JJ here IMO. Not a good range with TT. Better question is what do you do with JJ-QQ here? I probably call QQ and fold JJ but close without history.

  3. I would need a lot of history with someone before I'm making this call with 10s. Only exception would be one of those lagtards that comes in open-shipping almost every hand in which case I'll take my chances.
