    Spots like this are really annoying but in sattys it's very important not to risk your tournament life without the nuts essentially. Especially in spots like this with a very short stack. Only play pots where you are likely to bust the short stack and I wouldn't even call a shove like the one you showed with AA.

      Hey adohole

      Very close! I think folding will show a bigger profit in the long run but that's just an educated guess. If we call and win we have pretty much secured ourselves a victory but if we fold it's likely that Player 2 will be forced to go all in before we are anyway.

      I think this is a close one because if player 2 doubles up then we will have similar stack sizes. With that being said, player 2 doesn't have much fold equity with just 4 bb's so it's very likely that he will be forced to go all in or call all in with a non premium hand which increases the chances of him being knocked out in 3rd place.

      So overall I think folding is best because even if player 2 was to double up then we would have a similar stack size to him which is way better than being the short stack. AK is likely to be the best hand but there's a ton of hands in player 1's range that have plenty of equity against it.

      Good hand, I would like to what a very solid hyper turbo reg would do. Cheers, Chris.

        Ummm yuck spot, but I gotta agree with Chris. (Because second is first) if the shorty folds here, hes left with 3 blinds, and will very shortly be standing really wide to not blind out. You have 10 left if you fold, which in most scenarios will get your seat. I would rather shove king high into the shorty than call off the big stack shove.
        I have to disagree with fadyen on calling with aces though..
        Btw I'm not the solid HT reg Chis is referring to. Just an HT guy...

          I put this into an ICM calculator, which confirms AKo is an ICM fold if the villain is shoving an approximate range of 1/4th of starting hands. According to ICM the only profitable call here for us is with AA.
