I'm possibly a little pissed-off at a mindless play from an opponent on the very first hand.

Anyway, a few hands later...


I'm loose preflop here.
If I can see a flop for 20 chips, then fine.

no reads...

This is an auto-call.  Besides the fact that you are getting over 5.5:1 odds, you can afford to lose 60 chips at this point, and knowing how villain played whatever hand he has now will be useful for later on in the tournament.

agree the reasoning mars. I decided to raise.

Pumba02: bets 60
7letters: raises 240 to 300
Pumba02: folds
Uncalled bet (240) returned to 7letters
7letters collected 400 from pot
7letters: doesn't show hand
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 400 | Rake 0
Board [8s Ac Jh 3h Kd]
Seat 1: HERES-CHAMP folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: s-lis555 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 3: 7letters (button) collected (400)
Seat 4: suntokee (small blind) folded on the Flop

Fold pre, but as played you should call the river.

At a 6-max table, from the button?!  If anything, he should be raising here.  However, being that we are in the early stages of a SNG, before any reads...a call works just fine.

I do agree with folding preflop, although calling ain't bad since you have position..
Perhaps i'm what tight but i rather limp here with suited connecters.
