  • Should I have shoved here

    Strange tournament with lots of shoving often with total rubbish. Should I have shoved here or was a fold the right play??

    As it turned out it was right but just want to get an idea of if it was the correct play,

      Of course fold. Most aces have you dominated and you're an underdog against any pair, big underdog against most who are happy to go all in from early. You have no fold equity and are only getting called behind by the strongest hands. If you do go all in, what hands are you really hoping to see? There aren't many. There's also 5 still to act.

      You're not a short stack so I see no reason to get involved.

        Instant muck.

        The only hands with an A that I'm even considering playing here are AA and AK.... and AK is extremely marginal.
