Hi everyone,

I have somewhat of a beginners' question: Assume we are heads uo in a tournament, I am first to act and my opponent is desperately short. When is it correct to shove just any two cards, no matter how bad they are (such as 52o)? I would probably shove when my opponent has 3 BB left behind, and fold to a 4 BB stack. Is that about ok?

Btw, the video sessions have become a little bit quiet lately. What about a new series on hyper SNGs or HUs? I would watch it.

Hi Olaf!

I'd go with ATC if it's under 5BB.
