It's $2.20 Progressive Knockout with 10mins blind level. I am ultra deep in top 130 in a big field.

I was about to shove over the original raise but the SB player made the move I am not sure now should I still shove or fold?

Hi adi,

I would ship this in and go for it. With a 20bb stack we have to look for good spots, and I think this is one of them. Not always... if these were both super-nits we would have a crazy easy fold imo.

But what do we have here? A decent size stack that has been pretty laggy opens from mp. A 15bb stack (perfect reshove stack size) moves it in from the SB. While he's been playing TAG, he's also not been a stranger to the 3B. So in addition to all the straight value shoves, I expect him to have some light shoves as well like Axs, Kxs, maybe a few mid suited connectors. In short, my best guess is that he recognizes this is a good light 3b shove situation. In fact he is also probably shoving worse pocket pairs than TT to leverage fold equity. How sweet would it be to mash it in with our TT and find the SB with 88?

All things considered, this seems like an intelligent spot to gamble for a big pile imo.

Sorry I forgot to ask main question what do I need minimum in these kinds of spots?

My guess is 88+ and AQ+
