pair in hand low stack

Postby Wrien1972 » Sat May 20, 2006 4:09 am

There are seven people at your table and you are in not so good positioning.  You are short stacked and dealt pocket 10s.  What do you do?  What do you think the pros said to do?

I would go allin, 1010 is good
You cant risk to wait for better hand if the blinds soon will take you out...
But thats mine oppinion..

It's pretty much unanimous among the pros than when you get down near 10 big blinds, you should pick a hand and push all-in.  This isn't just to try to double up; it's also to take your shot while you have enough chips so the table isn't automatically priced in to call.

I think it would be safe to say "go all in", it's a good hand.
If you're short stacked the blinds will get you if you wait for a
better hand, and you may not get any better a hand in the time
you have before the blinds eat you up.

I would move it all, its that kind of situation where you got no more time to wait for a superb hand. And 10-10 is still pretty good hand to double up, and stay alive!
