Thanks for that in-depth explanation

I didn't fold because I thought I was bet. Will to prospect of getting knocked out in 6th by the big stack with a person with very few chips points this to a fold. Eve AA would be a fold here due to the way Fifty50 are right?

Thanks.

I think shoving pre with KK is +EV and your winning depends on chips won , that's all, It's fold in a satellite there's no difference between first and last but not in this game.I would shove even jacks.

Hi Affluenza,

In a Fifty50 there is definitely equity in making the bubble. But there is still equity to be gained collecting chips.

A 3way pot with KK I think you are probably always getting enough chip equity to come out ahead even on the bubble scenario.

But the main thing that swings it is you have the shover covered. Meaning if the big stack wins you will still finish 5th and the opener will take 6th.

Or if the shover wins and you win the side you're still alive with the shortstack first through the blinds.

ICM has a big impact in a Fifty50. But not this big.

Wow, never thought that if the big stack one i would have still got 5th place, so KK was an easy shove there then.

Thanks,

When multiple people go out on the same hand, it goes by starting chip stack at the beginning of the hand for placing. The higher one gets placed higher.
