We're in the late stage of the Hot 0.55 Turbo, at the last two FTs and my stack has just been reduced from an earlier play while I'm hoping to make it to the FT.

It looks like I could or should attempt a steal here as it's folded to me in the Hijack with , but I didn't.

How would you play this, if at all, and did I play this like a scared guppy?

What are good examples of steal ranges in this spot?

Hi Nataraj1!

With 3.5BB, when it folds to me in the cutoff, I'm shoving T7s here. I need to be shoving about 51% of hands here and for suited tens, this goes down to T6s+. Since T7s is within this range, I need to shove.

Here's the whole range I'm shoving from the cutoff at 3.5BB: 22+ Ax+ K2s+ K3o+ Q2s+ Q7o+ J4s+ J8o+ T6s+ T8o+ 96s+ 98o 86s+ 76a 65a

Hey Nataraj,

Real money is at the final table, but you need chips to even reach it. So 10 7 suited is a hand I would shove, because when you take it down pre-flop you almost double your stack. Even when someone calls with, for example, AK, you still have 40% chance to win the pot.

Would you say that additionally the reasoning would be that even with less fold equity with that big stack in the BB, T7s can flop well, e.g. with flush, flush draws and straight possibilities?

Keep in mind that the range will change with each .5BB and with each and every seat at the table.
