6 left(bubble)
Blinds 100/200/20

UTG 800
MP 2000
CO 4000
BUT 2800
SB 2500(HERO)
BB 2900

Pot 420

BUT open raises to 440(Note on Villain: very loose on the bubble)
(BB is marked as NIT)

I sit on the SB with 97s and 12,5 BB
Do I have enough chips to make the BUT fold if I shove?
Whats the least amount of BB's(roughly) that give me enough fold equity on the bubble?

Hi Espada,

We should have very good fold equity in this type of situation, but I see no compelling reason to test that theory here with our SNG life, considering there's a 4bb stack UTG.

You've failed to give the buy in, and I think that's very relevant. I would expect in a $30+ game more players to understand how insanely tight they should call your shove, and be laying down hands like AQ and TT, where as in a $1 game most of them don't know (and don't care) and we will get called off a lot more often.
