  • A8 with 14bb

    Should I have folded this hand, or a shove is an accurate decision, considering I have 14bb?

    Being in early position, I'd have folded it.

    If I was in late position and everyone before me folded or I had a few less BB left in chips, then I'd push. I'd fold this one, as you should be able to find a better spot to get your chips in.

    Early position, if I'm pushing an offsuit ace, I want to have a draw at a straight too (high or low) and would only take the low straight option if I had alot less chips.

      You have bad position and not a great ace on 14 BBs. Easy fold preflop. On the button or SB I'd probably push, but in early position this is a fold. You can wait a while.
