Sunday Million Hand

Just played this hand in my first ever Sunday Million.. Was a bit of a weird shove on the turn IMO. I was intending to check/call all the way. BTW... Please don't say fold pre.. I know that. And also, please don't say if you know it, why don't you fold pre..

I wouldn't fold pre. I'd be raising every possible opportunity and this is one.

I fold now though

Don't fold pre
Don't check the turn
I probably just bet/call the turn

Seems kinda crazy to b/c turn with tpmk and expect to be good but y'all play a lot more tourneys than me and I'm still in the dark ages of thinking minraising in EP is godawful, so away with ye! It's a b/f on the turn for me.

Presume we have no reads since none posted?

Folding, pre too(only mentioning pre since some people don't fold). I don't mind leading the turn but I prob check it just as often.

Don't think bet/calling the turn would be good in the long run. Bluffs and semibluffs is all we beat and people rarely bluff in that spot, especially for tourney life. Even worse aces would tend to flat but if they didn't fold pre they'd fold the flop. Unless we have a decent read on villain I don't think I'd ever b/c.

Villain was new to the table. 4 hands.

Yeah, I only checked the turn to let the hands I beat bluff at it/pot control slightly. Felt like I'm not getting called by much worse really. Would rather do that than bet fold. Feels like there's more value in it and I can decide on the river then.

FWIW I folded, I think there's a decent chance I was ahead, but felt like I still had a decent stack to play with.

Looks like he is hoping the ace hit you big. Don't think he is shoving light here.

Are you still going?

How long will the 10 milly one run for? As in what time Irish time will it end? - midday, two in the afternoon or something?

At least 12. Played the red spade when on holidays in the summer, that had 30,000 runners and I think it was 6 or 7 in the morning with 200 left and that was shorter starting stack and that finished at 10.

Fold all day long now unless you have a very specific read.

Would raise pre and raise flop. If he comes back at you its an easy fold.

If calling the turn, call the river. It's decision time there.
