hi there guys another one for Analyzing

A bit of facts, I was 2nd in Chips and it was the 500 max $0.55 game about 30 ppl left in the game.

The Chip Leader was always going for the blinds, So I thought I had a stab problem was the person after me Had Aces.

Question Being SHould I have gone in to try and get great Chip lead knowing the guy is going in with randoms.

I wanted to try win this tourny.

When quite stacked is it better to wait until final table to play aggressive.

As I said I was 2nd in chips at this point.

**moved to more appropriate section since this is a tourney hand JWK24**

Hi Mryilly!

With KQo in the cutoff, I get a shove for more chips than I have in front of me. While KQo is strong enough to shove with if I'm short-stacked, it's nowhere near strong enough to call an open-shove from UTG when they shove 83BB. I wouldn't call this large of a shove with even AQ or AK, I'd need to have AA or KK in order to call a shove this large.

It takes a much stronger hand in order to call a shove, than to shove with and with this large of a stack, KQ is nowhere near strong enough to shove with... let alone call.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
