  • Generally a correct shove in this spot?

    Hi there, just dropped out of a 1.1$ tourney and I am wondering if this was a correct shove in general. The outcome looks pretty stupid, but this was the situation: - The early minraiser was doing this pretty loose in the last 12 hands (minraised 8 out of 12 hands) - The blinds would have been raised after this hand up to 500/1000 - The caller was actually pretty disturbed, clocking down and stuff like that, but this doesn't effected my decision to shove in this spot What do you think? I thought it was correct to shove here, given the minraisers range and the upcoming blind raise I tried to accumulate more chips. Thanks! umbup:

    absolutely correct, the chances of the blinds waking up with a hand that dominates you are slim, I would be shoving there all day

      I like the shove too. If you take the pot down without any action, you're gaining almost 20% to your stack.
      If you get called, you have a very playable hand... and the shove should isolate you against one opp.

      Unfortunately, the SB woke up with a hand that had you dominated (which can happen).
