You only have 7bb, so calling looks fine to me. You'll be a in flip fairly often, but you have to gamble when you're this short.
(If the guy had folded pre, then open shoving would be standard, obviously).

Hi adohole,

Yeah standard call I think short in a turbo. You are usually in pretty good shape if this is his 3rd shove in 11 hands, he will have plenty of smaller pairs and AT and under.

Even as it is in a flip situation you are the favourite and getting the overlay from the blinds and antes.

You can't really think about tournament life at this point. It's all or nothing trying to get to that final table where the money is.

Nice Run

Quad Bracelet Winner
