Can you get away from Aces against the chip leader?

If you fold you still have a good stack at a soft final table, does that make folding Aces on a bad board easier?

Our friends Dara and David from the Unibet sponsored Chip Race are joined by Unibet Open Champion Padraig ‘Smidge’ O’Neill to discuss a huge hand from the event he won. 

As Dara says at the start, when you are 2nd in chips at a big final table and the chip leader opens you almost hope you get dealt a bad hand so you can just fold. That didn’t happen here at O’Neill was dealt two black Aces which he 3-bet and was called. 

The board ran out J J 3 6 8 and the Villain made O’Neil’s life very tough by overbetting the turn and shoving the river. 

The guys talk about how to construct a range against the chip leader when you are 2nd in chips. A key part of the hand is the significance of O’Neill blocking both nut flush draws and thus the most likely bluffs. They also got outside feedback from other professional players as well as the solvers. 

Most importantly they discuss when to pass small edges, especially when you feel you have a skill edge on a soft table with a slow structure. As Smidge said at the end, you do not want to go out of a big final table like this on a guess.
