Hi soletitbe!

The question I'd have here is whether this is a cash tourney or a league game? The reason I'd ask this is that I'd need to play them totally differently.

In a cash tourney with 6.5BB, I'm going to shove AJ over the limp here all day long. I'm too short of chips to do anything else.

However, if this is a league game, I'm just going to flat here and I'm not going all in without a made hand. I need to do whatever I can to last as long as possible to get more and more league points for the monthly leaderboard.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi JWK24,

Yes it was a league game,so me bad.So use to shoving with less then 10 big blinds in PS tournaments.Hope it don't come back to bite me on the rear end, when all is said an done. Finished the tournament in 23rd place out of 131 players(a few points for cashing) but i should have folded like you said.

I just finished another and grinded out a few more places by not shoving when i was low stack. There was 189 players that started in that one. Was low stack with 20 players left and i finished in 17,th ( few more points for cashing) but better yet, the 3 extra places might move me up a bit. Will see when they update it.

Ty and GL to you at the tables.
