Hi joustinc!

While I do want to play very cautious in a league game, I really don't want to be in multi-way pots out of position. With 4BB left, it's going to be a shove/fold for me here.
If the bubble was close enough that I would get ITM within the next orbit, then I'm going to muck it and get ITM for the league points.
If the bubble was farther out, then I'm shoving here as I don't want to let any of the opps yet to act get into the pot to see if they hit a part of it without paying me off.

If I'm going to shove, then I really want to have a player that will play ATC be the one that would be in the hand against me.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)
