It is $5.50 MTT with 142 runners. 10mins regular blind structure and 3000 starting stack.

I am 14/27 and 15 places are paid. Real money is in top 5 as always.

What should I do here raise 3x/4x or just shove?

Only concern is if SB player wakes up with a hand, rest I can take heat from all the 3 players: BB and the two limpers:

hey Adi, before anyone else with more sense and skill chimes in

I would be more cautious on the first limper myself, but I would just shove it as, although you might meet a 22 or 44 etc off the first limper, I would just go for gold and maybe risk losing a third/half of your stack if anyone calls

Hi Adi

I'd cram it in and expect to be called more often than not by a worse hand. If we make a 3/4x raise there's a strong possibility that we will get flatted by all the short stacks, whiff the flop and fold to any action. This is an great spot for a shove

Cheers, Chris.
