Hi darkmajik!

One question I'd have. What chip position were you in? In top 7, near top 7 or outside it?

If I'm inside the top 7 and since I shoved the hand before, I'm going to muck 33 here. If I hadn't shoved the hand before, I would be more likely to shove, but with 33 I'd rather have the opps have a better chance of folding. Normally when I shove multiple hands in a row, I want to have the better hand the second time, as I'm likely to get called lighter. With 33, if I'm called, best case, I'm in a race. Although with this size stack, it's definitely a shove/fold for me.

If I need chips to get into the top 7, then I'm going to shove with 33 here and hope that I'm in a race and not dominated by someone behind me. I'd rather be open-shoving from late position, but if I need chips, I'll do what I can to try to get enough chips to first get ITM, then take down the tourney.

I'd also be more likely to shove here IF the big stack at the table had already folded, as I'd be looking to take chips from the lower stacks, as they'd be more likely to fold to me.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
