It is $11 Phased tournament its new to pokerstars with 2 Day's (Phase 1 = Day 1 and Phase 2 = Day) and I am playing Phase 2 so I am ITM now and it has 10mins blind level. Pay-jumps are not very huge around 375 players left, 540 were paid.

I feel I can shove this , but I am not sure coz I am at Low-jack . Plus it's 10mins regular game so plenty of time and making FT is huge money.

I have like 11BB and 5 players to go through if I shove

KQs plays really well in all in pots, not folding this 11 BB deep from any position

It's too early to worry about final table prize money, we need to focus on chipping up so we can get there now.

If you're worried about prize pool money then you shouldn't be playing these stakes.

Hi adi

We are a long way away from the final table so that shouldn't be crossing our minds or have any effect on the way you play this hand.

Easy shove. 11 bb's mid/late pos, QKs.... jam it in awlllllll day. I'd shove the QKs from any position.

Cheers, Chris.

I did that as I was too far from FT. Do you think BB call is fine?
