Hi AAinmypockt!

What type of tourney is this from? The reason that I ask is that there will be different replies based on the type of tourney. Also, did you have any info on the opps?

Hi AA,

With a 12 big blind stack and 3 limpers in front, this is a perfect spot to move all in preflop with QQ. We rate to have the best hand, can get called by worse for an opportunity to more than double up, and if they all fold we pick up 900 chips, a 37.5% increase in our stack size.

I don't like opening any lessor amount because it decreases fold equity and increases the chance we lose this hand and valuable chips which we can't afford to squander on such a short stack.
