Shoving Ranges

• Level 5: 100-200, 0 ante

With the blinds going up a lot of players are in the 15 to 20 big blind zone, if that, so we are seeing a lot of all ins now.

On one table there was a very relieved player who shoved with {a-}{q-} and was instantly called. His relief was explained when he saw he was up against another {a-}{q-} and they chopped the pot.

Less happy with the gentleman who got his stack of over 4,000 in with {a-}{a-} and was up against {a-}{k-}. The board ran out {4-}{6-}{3-}{2-}{5-} giving them both a straight and chopping the pot.

“I would have been right in the game.” he complained, thinking about the 8,000 stack that got away but then added, “At least you didn’t get a flush.”

On another table there was an all in confrontation when one player shoved with {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} and got looked up by {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}.

"I hate this hand." said the player with the ace king, and he sure didn't like the flop of {3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. He sure picked up when he saw the turn card {k-Hearts} but strode from the table when the river {q-Clubs} hit.

When he had gone another player said he was glad he didn't mention he had folded a queen.
