    That was a nice play Andrei but without some more background and information if it difficult to say if it was the right play.

        I'm playing a 45 man sit n go, we're at the bubble and I have somewhat of a loose image. I've been calling SB with the attempt of semi-bluffing stealing on the flop- my opponent is pretty tight and folds frequently to my raises on flop. I decide to raise 2.2bb- don't really want to commit too much preflop with 99. The flop comes- rainbow, and I decide to bet half the pot, somewhat of a semi-bluff. Newman reraises me giving me 1500 more to call into a pot of 6700 which r great pot odds. But I don't want to build the pot with so many scare cards that can come on the turn such as a ten, jack, queen, king, ace. I really thought that I was ahead here and he was making a move. Against a player with a range of any pair, AT+, KQs, QJs, I still have 53% equity, which his range is wider than that I supposed. So instead, I decided to raise, for if he really did have something worth raising, he would shove and I would have to fold or do you think calling his shove would be okay? Is my chain of thought adaquate? How would you play it?

          I am not a SNG player myself but I think it is a very intelligent and aggressive play 5handed. The sizing of the raise is excellent, as it will get air to fold but allow BW players to call. The flop is scary, especially with the over card and when he bets it is tempting to fold. The reraise is all down to your intuition and your read on your opponent and certainly with his min raise to your half pot bet I would have called his shove. It also demonstrates that you do not need a shove to take a pot down, and a shove is dangerous as I think he probably had KQ+ and maybe could have hit the turn or river.

          Well played Andrei,
