    Hi Shichi-77!

    Since I'm already ITM and this is the qualifier league, where the larger money for the individual tourney is in the top 3 spots, I'm absolutely playing to get to a top 3 chip stack now.

    When I pick up AA in the SB, I'm looking for someone to give me a reason to shove, as it's a bit much to shove if it's folded to me, as a standard opening raise would be 15% of my stack.
    The min raise from the button is exactly what I'm looking for, as a raise of their bet pot-commits me, which makes shoving the expected play. With it being the expected play, the opps can think that I'm doing this much lighter than with AA and can be called by lesser and lesser hands... it's a perfect scenario for me.

    I'm shoving here 100% of the time.

          As JWK says & Lango agrees - you can take it as read.

          The Tournament Prizes in each individual tourney are just as valuable as the points, as there are no league cash prizes in the Qualifier League for positions - just a chance to qualify for Premier League to all top 200 with 20+VPPs. Try to win the tourney as you would a regular MTT,once in the money - go for FT /Top 3/ WIN

          The potential extra league points for top positions will also be +EV for the league, and if you do bust here, which will happen sometimes, use your ITM winnings to go again in the next game for more points.

          Only possible exception might be at the end of the month when you think lasting a few more orbits will guarantee you the Premier league ticket - but you would need to be sure that has enough potential value to you to give up the chance of a tourney win here. Next month's premier league you might win $20+, but you could have a very good chance of $20+ from this single tourney (though a lower top limit) when you make your +EV tourney shove here - so I think it would be a very rare situation to have any other action here than getting the chips in fast.
