Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

IMO this is a normal push and I must to do it always. What do you think about?

Hi ahcrata!

Since I'm ITM already and have the lowest stack, I'm looking to accumulate chips. When the button folds, I'm guaranteed to be HU, so I'll treat this as if I'm playin HU. I'm looking to play any A, any K, any pair, any broadway. K9s fits, so now I need to look at how to size my bet. I only have 8BB, so since I'm under 10BB... I'm going to jam. I could open-raise to 500, but this is very close to 1/3 of my stack (the committment point).. so I'm going to jam here.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
