I fold if there are left 30-31 in a tourney , if there left at about 40 I shove. If ITM I shove, because I need to reach final table absolutely, or there's no big difference between 27-th and 10-th.

It's almost always a shove.
If you miniraise at that spot and get shoved you will be in a tough spot and might fold the best hand.
So always shove unless you have reads on players 3betting-shove frequencies.
Folding is too conservative.

Due to the fact that the real bubble is the final table, then I dont fold at 30-31 players because im not just trying to make the money its the same as shoving at 27, what you think?

Just for me is very important to get ITM and of course it's because of position UTG. And 10BB's

Oh ok, for me I'm trying to get out of the habbit of "ITM" in these 180's inparticular its much better to get a deep FT run, that said I'm not achieving It at the mo

Thanks for comments

I'm shoving it too. We are actually 8 handed and there are 2 ultra short stacks making us effectively 6 handed which makes this all the sweeter to get our chips in the middle.
The bubble money is too small for us to contemplate folding spot's like this. I know I go on and on about it but the risk/reward ratio is good enough for us to go with the hand and if anything people may tighten up their calling ranges seeing as we are close to the bubble.

Cheers, Chris.
