Hi Espada,

This is a pretty tough spot.

Two things we need to know to make a good decision.

1) Is the big stack playing a bully. If so we probably won't get another spot to shove. We should take this one.

2) What kind of player is the BB? If he's at all tight. Then it's a shove with so much to gain when he folds. We can make a profit if he folds more than about 35% of the time. Most players I think will fold more often than that. If he's really loose and you think he's likely to call (more than 65% of the time) I think it's best to fold and the guy may well call allin against someone else in the next orbit and bust.
