It is $2.75 60mins Time tournaments around 16 mins were left at this point.

I have 3 questions:
1) Can I insta-call if SB player had folded. What do I neeed minimum to call the CO shove there with?
2) What hand do I need now to reshove on the SB player?
3) Should I have still reshoved instead of folding?

I folded in this hand coz I knew once the SB player called he is never folding to my shove. And I will most likely be against 3-4 over cards.

Even if I win against SB player and lose against CO player I will gain only 650 chips which is too much of a risk.

Hi Adi

1. Yes easy call. 77+A10+QK+ seems about right to me.

2. Considering the structure of the tournament and that you have 16 minutes left I would personally reshove with a tight range and whether or not that's optimal I don't know but I'd happily shove JJ+. 1010 is meh and with limited hands on villain I would probably fold due to the fact that we have 16 minutes remaining and you have to beat two other holdings to come out of the hand with a significant profit.

3. No, I don't think so.

Cheers, Chris.

I agree Chris. I think JJ+ is where I'd draw the line too.
