Hey I'm wondering if it was a good move by me to shove in this spot? Also I'm wondering what kind of range you would put the UTG spot on?


PokerStars - $10+$1|200/400 NL (9 max) - Holdem - 9 players

MP: 17,140.00
MP+1: 23,515.00
LP: 10,755.00
CO: 7,690.00
Hero (BTN): 3,480.00
SB: 10,600.00
BB: 6,165.00
UTG: 5,520.00
UTG+1: 7,120.00

MP posts ante 40.00, MP+1 posts ante 40.00, LP posts ante 40.00, CO posts ante 40.00, Hero posts ante 40.00, SB posts ante 40.00, BB posts ante 40.00, UTG posts ante 40.00, UTG+1 posts ante 40.00, SB posts SB 200.00, BB posts BB 400.00

Pre Flop: (960.00) Hero has 5h 5s

UTG calls 400.00, fold, fold, fold, LP calls 400.00, fold, Hero raises to 3,440.00 and is all-in, fold, fold, UTG calls 3,040.00, fold

Flop: (8240.00, 2 players) 6c Qd As

Turn: (8240.00, 2 players) 2s

River: (8240.00, 2 players) Kh

UTG shows Th Ac (One Pair, Aces) (PreFlop 47%, Flop 91%, Turn 95%)
Hero shows 5h 5s (One Pair, Fives) (PreFlop 53%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)
UTG wins 8,240.00

Welcome to the forum G.

Personally, I know you're under 10BB, but I might wish to push until the situation is a little better. You already have 2 limpers in. The range I would put them on is just what they showed AT+, maybe any pair.
With the UTG limping, you should probably expect a call with him having less than 20 BBs.
I like to be the first in if I'm pushing with less than a premium hand and less than 10BBs.

Just my .02

Let us know if you have any questions on the league or site.

Shove is fine on a stack under 9 bb's.

Without any read other than UTG limped in with a short stack (which is terribly fishy) I'd say they're on a wide range.

You'd be surprised how many bad players will limp/fold even on a short stack.

No one who's played PSO for any amount of time should be surprised by players limp/folding on a short stack.
