Hi ahcrata!

When playing tourneys, I can shove wider, but I need to call shoves much tighter and KQ is one hand that is not normally a calling hand.

I now need to run an ICM calculation to see what my call range should be.

With the cutoff shoving and the button calling, this one surprised me, as this is the call range that I get. 33+ A6s+ A8o+ KTs+ KQo QJs

KQo, while it's at the bottom of the range, it IS within the range, so I should be calling.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
