No Limit Holdem Tournament
8 Players
Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight

UTG Vovchikq (695) 5bb
UTG+1 xm0use (1,555) 10bb
MP1 Nazar321 (960) 6bb
MP2 Stealthje (2,324) 15bb
CO Zedsteau (1,076) 7bb
BTN Txxx-NICO (2,400) 16bb
SB Angelovakemp (1,240) 8bb
BB HERO (3,250) 22bb

Blinds: 75/150

Pre-Flop: (225, 8 players) HERO ??? is BB
Vovchikq goes all-in 695, 6 folds, HERO ???

I put the villain in a standard range of:

55+, A2s+, A5o+, K9s+, KJo+, QTs+, JTs+

I used the ICMIZER and it shows a good call. I was wondering if the opponent is very tight I could fold here. Are there players who does a push here only with 77+, AT+, QKs?

Sorry by the english. How can I write better what I mean.

As you saw in ICMIZER, it's a must call even vs a tight guy.

In terms of ranges to call off, A8o+, A5s+, KJs+, KQo+ and 22+ are correct ICM wise.

Of course tighter opponents lend themselves to tighter calls, but ATo is still well within a call range.

Hi ahcrata!

Due to the opp being UTG, when I go to ICMIZER, I get a shove range for them of 8% (66+, ATs+, AJo+).

If they are actually playing this range, then I get a call range of 6.3% (77+, AJs+, AQo+)... so it's a marginal fold as it's a -.54%EV play to call.

If the opp would be playing a wider range, no read on the opp given, then this could possibly swing this to a marginal call.

Either way, it's a marginal play and I'm going to pass and look for a better spot.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

I think you can call here
Because he only got 5 BB left and will be so crippled in the next hand or two
For me, with this stack size, 5BB and will be eaten up another 1.5 BB, i will go with any ace, pairs, KTos+, maybe any suit connectors

And you are in the big blind, that makes it even cheaper
Easy call for me imo
