Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

I think that was a loose push. Maybe 88+ could be more suitable.

Tough one. For me it would depend a lot on how the table was playing and what I thought my Image was. With six players to get through I'd want to know I've got a reasonable chance of getting the folds that I'd be hoping for and I'm not just throwing my chips at a bunch of maniacs.

Hi ahcrata!

From early position, I'm going to muck 55 here. I"m not that far from 3rd place (where I can get ITM) and I don't want to value-own myself by shoving. I'll be looking for a situation either with better cards or when I'm in position and not out of position to play a hand.

From an early position, I'd want to have a much higher pocket pair to shove, more like JJ+.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
