Do you think this could be a fold in icm terms? the bb was calling everything almost a 78 /30 (vpip/pfr) , and with so short stacks i think this could be a icm fold, but not sure

Hi scarface763!

After I min-raise, I get the bigstack to raise to 11k. My first instinct here is to snap-ahove, but we'll go to an ICM calculator and see what my shove range for this spot is, as I expect it to be about JJ+/QQ+ and AK+. When I put this scenario into it, I get a shove range of only AA and KK. These are the only two hands that I should shove with here.

Here is the range that I should be called by: 66+, ATs, AJo+

Normally, the shove range is much wider than the call range, but this scenario is the exact opposite.

Correct play, unfortunate result.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

it helps , thanks for the help, the only doubt here is because villian is calling widely , and what adjustment i made here, but here in this spot i suspect that kk is my bottom range , and just like the irony you said.
