Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

What do you think about this push knowing the SB e BB are tight players?

Hi ahcrata!

Knowing that the opps are tight DOES help with my decision here. J9o is a favorite against random cards and if the opps are tight, then they could fold too... which would not be a bad thing. Also, I need to be finding anyway that I can to chip-up to try to get to the top 3.

I may be ahead, may be behind, but with two tight opps, I should be in a HU pot worst-case and best case, I win the chips in the pot without a fight. As the lowest chip stack, I'm willing to take that chance here from the button.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
