  • Big $4.40:Late in tournament...low on chips.

    Having trouble with installing hand replayer,so hope this will suffice:

    1. It was getting late in tournament.
    2. I was running card dead for about 6 orbits.
    3. Very,very low on chips.
    4. This was my bust hand from tourny.

    Would like some feedback on this play, and what ways should i've had played it, if at all?

    Hi soletitbe! With less than 2BB left, I need to be shoving a very wide range and a broadway ace definitely fits (honestly, I'd be looking to shove about a top 50% hand here and ATo is a top 11% hand). Due to this, I'm going to shove this everytime I'm in this situation. I've got too few chips to not go with the hand here. What I would look at in a situation like this, instead of my exit hand, are the hands that I passed on that got me to this low of a stack. I'd be looking for hands that I missed playing, especially when I was in position with a +EV situation (which could be multiple of them due to the large blinds/antes compared to my chip stack). Seeing which opportunities that I missed (so that I can learn from them and not pass on them the next time) is where I learn the most from these types of situations. Most of them will probably be missed steal opportunities from the button/cutoff/hijack. By taking advantage of these +EV spots in late position, yes, sometimes I will get KO'd sooner, but on average I'll be gaining chips, so that I can also make some deeper runs in the tournies. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      i think you definitely need to shove here especially since some players have already folded in front of you. with such a short stack sometimes you can't just wait for premiums but the nice thing about your hand is that you can easily get called by worse and have a nice chance to double up and more. The main reason too you can't sit around waiting is that the antes are going to eat you up and by the time you find a hand to play you might have less than 1 bb left.
