Hi Guys,

This is the bubble of a $1 45man. Should I fold in this situation when a short stack is all in and try to cash? I decided to go with the hand, I'm < 10BB and probably have some fold equity against the original raiser.

Thanks in advance.

Hi DasherF78,

Brutal river.

This is absolutely a good shove. In a 45man there is enough money up top to make it worthwhile still trying to accumulate chips and win the thing.

In terms of fold equity. I don't actually think we have alot reason being is the opposition is raising UTG and raising a full 3x raise rather than anything smaller. Both these things point to a stronger hand that intends to call allin. But still AK plays ok versus this range.

The other thing going for this spot is the short stack is allin on the bubble so for us to miss out on the min cash. The big stack needs to beat us and also the short stack needs to bet us. That won't happen often and the times AK wins will more than make up for the occasions the 6 rolls off on the river.

I love the shove. Just unlucky Dasher.
Andy
