It's the Hot 0.55, and we're on the bubble. Although I was briefly #1 and in the Top 10 on more than 2,000 runners, I've been mostly card dead and lost one or two altercations which have reduced my stack with the blinds and antes rising...

I have offsuit in Mid Position with 15 BB, the big blind is a shorty, but there are mid and large stacks on my left

What would you do?

1. Shove and bank on the bubble fear/fold equity to either win the blinds uncontested or shove and take the chance of being called with a hand that could have good showdown value and maybe double up, or risk bubbling out

2. Stay put for a round which could ensure you cash in, although the goal isn't to min-cash

I'm shoving. I don't want to play scared around the bubble. I'll gladly take chances to chip up.
