$2/5. $500 Max Buy In.
Game has been very slow and tight. Someone proposed 1 round of $10 UTG straddles to liven the game up and everyone agreed. The game is 7 handed.
Hero is the UTG straddle with $625 behind and A♣ 3♣
First to act (LJ) makes it $35 off a $450 stack.
- A straight forward tight regular.
BTN calls off $650.
- Has only played a few hands and I have yet to see any showdowns.
I have 2 questions in this hand and this is the first:
1. Is this a fold pre due to the short stacks?
If we were deeper this hand would fall into my 3-bet range a large percentage of the time. Since we were so short I didn't want to 3-bet and get called creating a large pot post flop and short SPR's.
I called, but I think its a fold?
Flop ($105) = 2♣ 6♣ 5♠
I ch. LJ makes it $100. BTN tank calls.
Is our only play a jam here?
