It is $1.10 MTOPS #44 Escalator event with 5000 starting stack, currently blinds levels are of 11mins. Not ITM yet.

What to do here I have 15.75BB stting on CO. I am confused to fold or min raise or just shove?

Hi adi,

Seems close in either direction to me. I would say just go with your gut in game between shoving or folding. The only option I really don't care much for is min-raising because 3 of the 4 stacks behind us have good reshove stacks and I don't love raise/folding on 15bb's nor raise/calling with 33.
