only 5th or 6th hand at the table, but the player shoving i had looked up and saw they had a solid score. also player in BB, hadnt played a hand since i sat down, so figured he was unlikely to push me all in.

would like some feedback on whether or not u think it was a bad call

im thinking if i was calling, i might as well been reraising all in

with cosmo shoving, no way would I call that with anything lower than QQ.

If it was a lesser player, I might consider it, but probably not... seeing how you haven't even gotten to the ante stage of the tourney yet.
