Please can you evaluate whether this is a shove or a fold? The 3 players behind were tight and i hadn't seen them call all ins light at all.

Also, there are instructions about how to use hand replayer, which I've saved the above hand to, but how do you attach the hand to a post?

I follow this chart: *Link removed as per ToS*

I think it's borderline shove as I find that chart a bit loose sometimes.

The only reason I will not shove light coz all the stack behind me are very short so they will not hesitate to call with any Ax Kx TJ+. Which means I will get called in this spot as those guys behind me are more desperate to chip up and are more inclined to call with marginal hands as they can't wait long.

So you will be unsuccessful in stealing chips from them as they will say what the heck I have 9Ts lets call atleast my card are live or JT+ they will call and take chances against your shove. So that means overall when you get called by JT+ or 9Ts+ or Ax or Kx you will be sometimes ahead but not much at best 60-40 when someone behind you chooses to take risk with QT, 89s, A5 etc

Hi Steve

I too would shove the K7s. I'd also shove J7s+/108s+ any broadway and any A with just three players to get through. Poroxman has less than 3 big blinds so it's not a huge deal if we lose to him so we're really only worried about two guys to our left not three.

I'll get a mod to explain how to load your hand histories, it's a simple process

Cheers, Chris.
