Hy guys, I need an opinion on this hand. It's a $0.25 45-man.

Should I've pushed all-in here ?

I didn't have too many reads on the players. ButI haven't been too much active on the table, so my image was very tight (for those who were acctually paying attention lol).
The thing is that I haven't got too many good hands so far, and I was getting short.

Hi fp_boss77!

You're not short here, even after folding, as you've got over 30BB left. That's still a very playable stack.

A read on the two opps here would be very helpful, as many players in this type of tourney are very loose.

If the initial raiser was loose, then I'd 3-bet to about 600, instead of calling. If the opp was tight, then I'd call the 200.
When the BB 3-bets to 900, it would depend on my read on them as to what to do. If the opp was playing very loose, I'd call if not shove over them. If the opp was playing tight, then I'm mucking to their 3-bet.

In this situation, for me it would come down to reads on the opps but... either way, I'm not short.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
