Is my hand good enough to push? Is calling mistake? By the way I put hand into SNG wizard, It shows "push all" because of chips in the pot.
Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi Schichi-77

Calling is a mistake. With just 14 big blinds in our stack we can't afford to flat call a raise, the reason being is because we will be check/folding the flop more often than not and some of the time we will flop second pair and feel committed to the pot because of how short stacked we are.

I would shove the AJs for sure, because of all the dead money in the pot we are likely to be called by worse some of the time. We also have some fold equity so I expect some of our villains to fold to our shove. Considering that there is a tremendous amount of money out there to be won and that our hand plays very well against our villains range, I'm getting it in.

Cheers, Chris.
