I would probably fold this from this position on the table before the flop.

Hi sandip504!

With ATo from UTG, I'm actually going to open-fold this here. The very loose bigstack is left to act (and in the blind) and villains 5,6,9 can all shove on me, as they have less than 10BB... so the way that I look at a situation like this, is if I'm not willing to play for these three opps' stacks, then I'm going to save the 140k chips and not even open it.

When villain 6 shoves, I'm absolutely folding. I'm behind their range and when I go to an ICM calculator since this is the FT, I get a call range of 88+,AQ+. Since ATo is not within this range, it's not a strong enough hand to call with, and due to this, I need to muck.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

with so many short stacks to act

if you raise here and opponent reshoves I think you have to call and hope for the best

if you dont like calling them off then just wait for the better spot

but if you raise and then fold to reshove of the short stacks that's the worst option
