This hand comes with 5/18 players remaining. The money bubble has burst. Fifth place leaves with more than their buyin but the top 4 gain entry to the target. I wake up with QQ on the button. The table has been playing tight for the last several rounds. I had just shoved the previous hand with A,x from the SB after it had folded to me and took it down preflop.

Here is the hand with results omitted:

I really can't see folding in this spot. I don't want the BB to get a walk in this position but I'm crippled or busted if I get called. Although, the small blind cripples himself if he calls me light. I'm really only worried about someone having AA, KK, AK.

Hi Jcondps

As the money bubble has burst and only top 4 out of the 18 players remaining win a seat, this is a hi 5 shove!

I would like to see you shove this regardless of how many chips you may have. In this situation you had 6 big blinds, I would be shoving as wide as 22+87s+910s+q9s+Ax and expect to see a profit. I expect a lot of players to shove even wider than this and still have a positive expectation from it.

Hope this helped and GL at the tables
