Villain 1 played tight, Vpip was like 15. I had better options playing this hand? Or i was just unlucky ?

The stack sizes determine all the play here. You only have 8BB left and have seen no aggressive action taken place before you in late position. Moving all-in is easily the correct play and you just got unlucky.

I hate the play of the villain but I see people limp-call shoves all the time, I don't understand why they don't just go all in themselves if they are going to call anyway...

What spand42 said...especially the part about how putrid the villain's play was here.

Play this the same way with this size stack every time kykkylik,more often than not you'll be flipping against pairs from QQ-22 or dominating any non-pair hands. The only 2 hands we're really worried about seeing here are AA and KK.

Hi kykklik

With only 7 big blinds we ought to be getting it all in here When villain 1 limps into the pot he is showing weakness and I expect him to call our all in with a lot of hands that we have dominated.

Right move, just unlucky! Cheers, Chris.
