Right shove and possibly right call (like to hear a hand analysers thoughts on this as I'm calling)

You cannot judge your play on one hand. My table image is key in these, I can shove 72o if my image is a rock and get a fold but if I'm a LAG I will shove with AA and be called by 72o every time.

Hi Stedds,

Yes, this is a standard shove. Any A in the SB is always going in with 6BBs. And I think you still have a pretty decent ammount of fold equity here.

Ovalman,

In a normal game calling with 44 is ok since he's getting a decent price. But in a league game I would've probably folded since preservation is far more important than accumulating chips for a win. (Unless you're inside the money and going for the final table points now)

Cheers
Andy
