It is MTOPS Super Turbo event with 10BB Starting stack and 5mins blind levels. Rest info is below:

I have 5 players behind and a limp. Can I shove my 12BB stack?

Hey Adi,

I would fold this hand.
These reasons come to my mind :
- lack of information
- you are against 7 opp's
- ^^ or otherwise said you are basically UTG because of the limper.
- tournament is at it's third level, I would wait a bit more.
For fun I usually play hyper turbo SNGs and some of the regs understand the power of pairs (with 10BB)and go to war flipping with as low as 22, if they hold TT+ you are in a worst shape.

Just my two cents.
Regards, Shoim
