He may be loose, but the raise is small looking to get some action. The big stack has the luxury to play more hands and make steals from late position. A call obviously was dangerous also, as you would have likely shoved the top pair. I know you are getting low on BB, but it would be better to play the Big stack in position...

That's my two sense...

Hi jokr02

This isn't by any means a terrible spot to shove because I believe that villain will fold a lot of the time but I think it's best to pass up on spots like these pre ante. We still have some time to wait for a better spot, the next blind level will have ante's which means we can get away with open shoving wider preflop 'which I would prefer to do rather than reshove all in and hope for a fold in the spot that you took'.

Cheers, Chris.
