Pierre Calamousa is a French short stack poker pro. He gets pocket kings and does a tough maneuver against Ian Bendick in the small blind.
Pocket Kings are the hand of dreams in any situation, let alone a big tournament. Kalamusa goes to the standard 2nd open with his 16 big blinds. Some players prefer to push or fold here, but this is most likely a mistake. 16 big blinds are more than enough to have a cut-off opening range.
Bendick folds in the small blind and he calls. This is almost certainly a mistake, especially due to the stack sizes of other players. The short stack in the big blind shoves several times when we call, which is a terrible situation for us.
Push or fold is best here, depending on Calamus' tendencies. Umarov defends against the big blind for almost 6 to 1, and we flop with 3 paths. Bendik proposes peace, and Calamusa checks the action with a 300k bet. Bendick calls again, which is the best option since he supports the widest possible range of Calamus. The trap is set, and Umarov leaves the road.
In tournaments, you often just can't get away from top pair / overpair because it's too strong a hand when the stacks are short. Kalamusa started the hand with 16 big blinds. With such a short stack, Calamus will often be up against a blocking hand like a flush draw or Jack.
Sometimes flush or trips are chosen here as well, but I find it very difficult to justify folding with the size of the stack and the relative strength of the Calamus hand. Apparently he thinks the same thing.
