      Hi RomeWu! The two questions I'd have are...... Was the opp playing tight, loose, aggressive or passive? Where am I at in the tourney, both how many players are left and where does my chip stack fit in? The overwhelming majority of the time, I am shoving here with A10. I only have 11BB, so if I am going to play the hand, it will be a shove and here's why. With a limper, if I make a std raise (3BB+1BB for each limper), then I'm raising to 400, which is over 1/3 of my stack, which means that I'm pot committed. If I'm pot committed, then I want to be the one shoving first and not having to call a shove, as it takes a much better hand to call a shove than to shove with. If the opp was a calling station, especially if I'm close to the $$ and had enough chips to get ITM, then I'd complete and see if I hit the flop.... but even then, I wouldn't always care to do this, as the opp could have an ace with a larger kicker which would get me in trouble if I did hit the flop. If I'm not in a position to currently get ITM, then I'm shoving AT here. If I'm in an ITM position, then I"ll complete, see if I hit the board, then bet... so that I can still get off the hand and get ITM if I miss the flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
