This is the FT,
there is a very small stack whos bound to double up
I tend to be tight near the bubble if not big stacked (99% of the time)
but got to get it in against this villain 13/12/0 or maybe not
you worst enemys the dealer, your short stacked, you see AK, all in from LP snap call ??

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi Jonny!

What is the action before it gets around to me in the BB. The replayer is cut off too early, so I can't see what anyone has done.

Please advise and I'll gladly give you my opinion on it.

sorry messed that up!
the cut off jams, he has enough chips to raise rather than jam, he seems like a good player

Hi Jonny9691!

With this being the final table, now I'm looking to get a top 7 chip stack, then a top 3 chip stack, then to take it down. Having the 8th largest stack, I'm definitely looking to accumulate chips.

To call would cost me 3633 chips into a pot that will be 8291 (43.8%).

I then go to pokerstove to see if I have enough equity in my hand to call. I'll start by using the opps PFR of a top 12% hand. Against this, I have 61.4% equity, which makes it an easy call as 61% is much greater than 43%.

In this situation, the opp being in late position could also be shoving even wider than this, because they would want to isolate me being in the BB and wouldn't want to just std raise and allow anyone else behind him to get involved. If this is the case, my hand equity will even be higher.

I'm calling this every single time against this opponent's range because I'm on average going to gain 17.6% to my stack. Also, if I win the hand (which I will do the majority of the time), then I go to 4th chip stack, which should safely get me ITM.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
