Or is the 3 bet from the chip leader too scary to contemplate shoving?

Thoughts please, thanks very much in advance.

as by stack sizes it's SNG and early stage , it's very ease fold for me I think I 5bet shove here with AKs JJ+, but not with ATs.

Hey fant_fox372

I like to fold. The button's 3betting range should be very strong. If the button folded then I'd like to call player 4's shove.

Generally speaking, people don't get out of line in the early stages of sng's so for that reason I'm only going to continue here with AK and JJ+ however I may alter that range ever so slightly depending on villains 3 betting tendencies but in a vacuum our range to continue ought to be AK and JJ+ imo.

Cheers, Chris.

It is definetely a fold even if they are both extremely bad players and shove with random hands, it is still a fold because you need to wait for a better spot with a better hand

Auto-fold. No need to think deep in the early stage. You should have several better situations later.

Remember, poker is about taking advantage of good situations. What is good about this situation?

Also, cards only matter at showdown. Since you have an all-in a showdown is mandatory. Do you really want to show a weak suited Ace this early?

Good decisions.
