It's $22 Saturday Countdown 120 mins Time Tournament and I am 32 mins into the game so no reason to play tight.

I am 90% sure that it is correct shove, but I was worried about the opener stats.

Is it still a shove considering his stats?

I mean can I call with 19BB stack

Hi Adi

Shove is good. Even if villains range is as tight as TT+,AQs+,AQo+ (it's much more likely to be wider than this especially as you're 7 handed) we still have more than 51% equity and with more than 20% of our chips in the pot this is a no brainer shove imo.

Flatting sucvs. We have an awkward stack size for flatting and we will have to fold to c-bets very often.

Cheers, Chris.
