This is a hand played in a major WPT event by one of our own WPT students.
Blinds: 100/200/50; 90 minute levels... not sure how much time left in this level; 9 handed table
Hero (BB) : AKo, 22,500 (112 blinds) ... not sure of the stack sizes of the other players.... let's assume approximately close to ours
SB = "a very accomplished pro" ... I do know that Phil Laak and Antonio Esfandiari were at his table at times during the tournament
Preflop: MP1 raises 500; MP2/CO/BTN call; SB raises to 3500; Pot = 6150
What is the SBs range?
Varying opinions as to the SB's range: as tight as TT+/AQ+ but could be as wide as 99+/AJs+/KQ
Hero's best play?
(by way of edit, added Hero's position, BB)
