    Tough spot! I think I'm grudgingly folding here.

    PROs: You have a premium starting hand, it's folded around to you and need to double up asap
    CONs: The chipleader, the one guy who can call your shove, is in the bb.

    This seems to be an +ev spot, but ICM probably indicates folding.

    If this is a regular speed folding seems better in this spot because of the huge stack of the chipleader and the short stack getting the bb before you. In other words, you can presumable fold your way itm. If this is a turbo, shoving seems best because you cannot afford to pass up such an ev+ spot. Furthermore, if one of the medium stacks were in the bb rather than the chipleader, shoving pretty much atc looks good.

    PS: If this were larger than a 45 man, shoving seems better since the top places are more important than a mincash.

        Yes, those words do sound familiar - LOL!

        I'm not sure if it's correct, but I treat bubble play in regular speed 45 man or smaller tourneys as I do the bubble in single table tourneys. In other words, ICM is important. Stack sizes are important. And both take precedence over your starting hand. Sometimes this allows you to shove atc, other times it means folding KK. In this particular situation you have to deal with the chipleader acting after you and a micro stack at the table.

        Let's hear what the experts have to say. I might be way off base

              Hi ace,

              You only have a 5bb stack, the villain has 20bb's and 1 already in so he's calling 4 more. Many players on a 5bb stack would be shoving a fairly wide range, and if I were in the villains shoes and perceived that you were, I 'd call with ace high too getting better than 1.6 to 1 on my money. If I knew you were shoving only a very tight range I would fold it in his shoes.

              Personally I would shove AK all the time in this spot. I doubt ICM says you should open fold it here but since Roland says it might, I'll ask you Roland to run it through ICM for us and see.

                You are making me work here Dave - lol! Let me get out my calculator. And give me a some time to do the math the old fashioned way

                  Well, I did the math assuming that the bb will call our shove 33% of the time. If we fold our equity is $4.20. If we shove, our equity is $4.54. Not surprizingly, TheLangolier was absolutely correctumbup: Thanks for setting me staight. Learning by doing (the math that is...) Roland GTX PS This exercise made me want to buy Sng Wizard since it will do the icm calculations for you

                    Shoving on the bubble

                    45 man MTT - bubble - top 7 get paid - lion’s share to the top 3 places

                    NITting in:
                    You can conceivably fold into the money within 7 hands (only set you back 350 in antes); short stack will need to commit during that span; even if he doubles up you can still try to wait him out (at the cost of probably only min-cashing). He’ll need to triple up or parlay, to put the pressure back on you. At this point you’re still not guaranteed a spot ITM.

                    Taking a stab:
                    If you do get ITM, you are winning less than 2 times your buy-in (4% of the pool which = .8:1). If your shove is called and you win, you have a shot at 4th place (8% which is double 7th place), and possibly higher. You still have some fold equity (for the reasons below); and you may take down 1600 chips, without a flop.

                    Fold equity:
                    If hero shoves, the big stack may actually give hero more credit than you think because… hero is on the bubble; hero can most likely fold to the money; hero has been playing tight (you said the entire table was tight); and hero is attacking the big stack. If hero shoves, the dead money in the pot will be ½ of what the villain needs to invest to call (needing 40% equity). Villain may decide to take a chance (he will share chip lead if he loses), but he’s not doing it with ATC.

                    I’m shoving!
                    .
