  • $1 45-man SnG - 88 on the BTN, should I call shove pre

    We're down to around the last 20 and I'm CL. Villain is 11.1/8.3/3 over 36 hands. Should I be calling this shove?

    Hi Hellsgate,

    I would fold here too. A villan who's playing 11/8 shoving 12 BBs from early position will have a pretty tight range here. We would be hoping for overcards at best where we would only be a small favourite.

    The blinds don't really add much to the pot when we would have to commit 12BBs.

    Even if we saw his card and we were a small favourite against against overs I still don't think I like this spot. We already have a ton of chips losing 12BBs here would be worse for us than picking up 13.5BBs would be good for us. I would be using the big stack to put pressure on if possible but not gamble. Here the opponent is already allin, there's no pressure we can apply.

    Thanks
    Andrew
