It is $11 Sunday Million Satellite and ITM is far. 10mins regular structure with some levels skipped.

Should I call here or shove?

I have 18BB. But I am worried that UTG min raise with such a short stack.

Hi adikumar2010!

I put a different question on this one... ship or fold? With 88, when I get a min-raise to 600, calling is totally out of the question. To setmine, I need to have 15X the bet in everyone's stack... and I don't even have 10X, let alone 15X, so I absolutely cannot call.

With this being a satellite, I need to continue to accumulate chips until I have enough to get the ticket. Being short-stacked and needing chips, this is a very good spot for me to re-steal with 88, as I have a perfect re-steal stack sizing. If I can take it down preflop, I gain almost 25% to my stack and if I get called, I have a hand with equity and the opportunity to double up in a +EV spot.

Taking all of this into account.. I'm shoving!

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Thanks I did shove to my not so surprise UTG with small stack min raised with KK. Anyways I was thinking of the minimum pair I would be shoving there with I think 66+. I suspect the UTG didn't play any hand now he is min raising with 12BB stack size.

i was going to say fold... then i scroll down and see the comments and see you have already put the hand results in.... ive played a lot of satelites... and in this spot more than not this is a monster from utg min bet, with their stack size they should be shoving all hands they want to play, the only hand they can have that you are ahead of is AK... however they would be shoving this pre too... also they have been tight, its only 12 hands which u cant read much into, however some info maybe could be gained from this.... anyway gl at the tables
