Hi Luniaril!

The real money in these is in the top 3 places. Since I don't have a top 3 stack, I need to be looking for spots to accumulate chips. When it folds to me with A4 in the CO, I'm absolutely shoving here. I'd be shoving much wider than A4s, as I'd be looking to shove about the top 30% of hands.

Unfortunately the SB woke up with a monster hand, but shoving here is the correct play.

Good luck at the tables.
