I am gonna post 4 hands from my last 180 Turbo Rebuy SNG. This was the first hand I was not sure about.

Vs unknown I think the shove is fine considering T8s is in the top 25% of hands but I saw this villain calling all ins pretty wide, in the couple of hands before.

Think its still a shove though.

Hi almigthybald

Versus a 10 BB stack this is a good spot for us to shove especially as there are ante's which makes a pot size of 1050 (25% of villains stack). Fwiw I would be shoving any suited cards/any broadway and any connectors.

I think it would be a mistake to shove anything less than the top 50% of our hands and maybe tighten up your range ever so slightly against good players that will call you correctly.

We ought to be shoving almost any two cards here but I think shoving say 65% of our hands is good.
Cheers, Chris.
