Good Night
I need a help here in this hand

Villain 6 came from another table and Villain 8 entered, folded 3 hands (Antes were 50). V6 shoved in and V8 called.

What should I have done here?
Did I act right?

Thanks for the help (:

easy game for me you saw what short stacks shove there , you will be ahead more often there and youv'e got great odds to shove there . I would shove there even T9s and all pairs 66+

Hi Mineroooow

The UTG shover has only 8 big blinds so his range of hands here are pretty wide and I would expect AJs to have the majority of his range crushed and as for player 6... we needn't worry about what hand he has because he only has 3 big blinds and he more than likely has some type of connector or weak Ax hand that we crush anyway.

I like the way you played it, shoving is definitely the best option to take. We don't want to just call because this could invite the big blind to call or even raise us.

Cheers, Chris.
