It is $11 Phase tournament with 2 Day's (Phase 1 = Day 1 and Phase 2 = Day 2) and I am playing Phase 2 so I am ITM now and it has 12mins blind level. Bubble just busted 10mins back so very long way to go.

Should I reshove or fold here? I am worried because he made a big 15BB shove from early position.

I haven't seen this player play any hand as he is also short from beginning of Day 2 like me.

seems like a pretty std reshove, not high five happy but we are far enough ahead of his range here, he will prolly shove A9s AT+ QJs KJs+ KQ and all poket pairs 66+ vs his range we have 51% plus there are allot of dead chips in the midle that we will pick up. if somebody finds a better hand behind us its just tough luck.
but this is just a jam :P

ps, he might be lighter than this so we might be even better

Hi Adi

Adohole has gone and took the words right out of my mouth =] I expect villains range to be slightly tighter than it would be than if he was in late position but we're ahead of his range none the less and with he blinds and ante's ever increasing this is a spot we can't afford to miss imo.
