Hey MTT/SNG grinders,
We are starting a new video series called Hand of the Week. Fellow FTR member Courtney Gee (donkbee) will be releasing 2-3 short videos each week talking about how to play a specific MTT or SNG hand in a tough spot. We hope to generate some interesting discussion and help some players improve their game.
Link to the video below:
Part I - Week 1A - AJ in MP with 20 BBs in an MTT (Preflop)
Description: This is the start of a new video series called Hand of the Week. In this video, Courtney Gee, known as donkbee, looks at a trouble spot some MTT grinders find themselves in - a decent hand (AJo) in MP with a 20 BB stack. Courtney looks at what Hero decided to do preflop and what better options they had. Part II and III of the series to come which go into postflop play.
Question: Do you think we should be min-raising with our entire range in this spot? Or are there hands where we can raise more than the minimum amount, or even just open jam?
Part II - Week 1B - AJ in MP with 20 BBs in an MTT (Postflop)
Description: Courtney continues from part I (which discussed preflop action) and expands into what to do if you're called out of position with AJ in MP with a 20 BB stack. She dives into a few different scenarios and different lines you could take in each. In Part III, Courtney will continue her postflop discussion, and talk about what to do if you miss the flop entirely.
Part III - Week 1C - AJ in MP with 20 BBs in an MTT (Postflop)
Description: In the conclusion of the first Hand of the Week segment, Courtney looks at how to play AJ out of position with 20 BBs when you miss the flop entirely. There are a few lines you can take, depending on the board and how villain plays. What did you think of our new series? Did Courtney play this hand correctly?
