First hand of the tourney, equal stacks for everyone

you are the BB with pocket aces - UTG shoves, every single player in the table calls

would it still be an insta call with the aces eventhough the chances of both your case aces being in someones hand being very high?

Hi bigfoot2212!

For me, it depends on the type of tourney. If it's a league game, due to the point penalties for an early exit, I'm mucking it.

If it's a cash game, I'm calling here everytime.

Good luck at the tables.
