It's $3.30 APPT ACOP Mega Giveaway Satellite Stage 2. 10mins blind level and 1500 starting stack.

Top 9 players get $22 Ticket to Stage 3 $22 Satellite, 10th place get $10 real money. 12 players are left and I am 9/12. Although the shorter stack then me are not ultra short they have 6-9BB so very little difference compared to my stack and I think I can still bubble if one of the short stack doubles up.

What should I do here, in a normal game it's a clear shove now I am like on the borderline.

I have 9.5BB and both players can bust me I am sure they will not call light coz of bubble effect but they will not fold AT+, KQ+ and 33+



So once called I am dead:

Hi Adi,

We have to outlast 2 more players to get paid and there's 3 shorter than us. If there are at least 2 who are significantly shorter, then I'd pass here. If we aren't that far behind them, I'd shove (I do expect to get called only by a super tight range, significantly tighter than what you've run equity against, given the satty situation).

You said the shorter stacks (all on the other table) are all between 6-9bb, so it's close. If it's 6/6/9 and the chip leader is moving them all in every hand, I'd wait. If it's 9/9/8 and the table is playing tight, then I'd leverage the fold equity on a shove here to stay ahead of them.

So what should I have done the bottom four players including me almost have same stack more or less. So even if one of them double up I am in danger zone and BB is hitting fast as orbit is small.

And the table is playing tight so when called I am beat but I have more fold equity then normal.

What do you suggest !

Sorry if I was a little tongue tied here and was confusing. I meant if they aren't far behind us, i.e. we all have similar stacks.

Sorry you shoved and got knocked out (obv), no need to post the result, I already know you shoved and ran into a monster. It happens. That doesn't mean the decision was wrong.

I got it now behind them means stack wise I thought behind there calling range (equity).

Thanks. I didn't post result coz some people then give result oriented reply, obvs. hand analyzers will be fair.
