Not much of a tournament or SnG player any more but I do play these games with my FPP's.

I'm unsure if this is a fist pump call because of the stack sizes. He can bust me with a shorter stack behind me.

I was pretty sure he was full of it, and that I was ahead, but in these things anything can happen.

OTOH, I am not safe either, the blinds jump quickly and I will be very short in no time. I have the chance to finish it (Pretty much) or bust.

Probably more of a situation analysis rather than a hand analysis but just wondering if this was good or horrible?

Hi john,

2 seats, which is why I was very unsure. This is the seat or busto.

Hi bhoylegend!

This one surprised me when I put it in. The SB here should push ATC (that part didn't surprise me much). What did is the call range. ICM says that I should only call with TT+, not a single unpaired hand. I was expecting to see a range somewhat near 88+ AJ+, but not so.
It lists ATs here as a -4.19% EV play to call.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Yikes,

Knew I was meant to be calling tight but didn't realise that it was that tight. I still feel ok about the call as the guy shoved on me any time it got to him unopened (As he should) so I knew with ATs I was way ahead of his range unless it became a cooler situation.

FWIW, he shoved with Q5o, so the read (As much a read as you can get or need in these) that he was just blindly shoving was correct.

I got the ticket, I'm sure that guy isnt happy as it was at his expense and I didnt do the dutiful big stack job of getting out of the way of his shove.

Thanks John
