Hi Michae2005!

Starting the hand with 15BB in a turbo, I'm definitely looking for spots to try and accumulate chips as very shortly I will be under 10BB.

With 88, I get a min-raise. My stack is not deep enough to setmine (15X the bet), so I need to either shove or fold. Being in a situation where I need to gain chips and also one where any 3-bet is going to pot-commit me, I'm going to shove 88 here.
With no read info on the opp, I'm expecting to most likely be in a race, with a slight chance that I could be dominated or that I could have them dominated.

Unfortunately, the opp won the flip, but I'm more than happy taking a flip here being a short stack. Well played.
