    Brutal run out. I'm guessing you made the money anyway cos you can assume that a shorter stack will busto during hand for hand.
    In which case its borderline for me with K9o on button and 15bb. Actually the SB is a non-factor so I'd shove with a modicum of confidence. I don't think its ever too far wrong if you feel you are 99% guaranteed to cash when the worst happens.

      Hi dirt eh

      I like the shove it's fine but if the small blind had a playable stack size then I would opt to fold the hand. We're effectively shoving K9 into one player and K9 is statistically stronger than a randomly dealt hand.

      I also imagine this tournament had a huuuuge player pool so even though we are playing hand for hand it's very likely that someone with a shorter stack than you will bust out of the tournament so we're very likely to get paid whether we win the hand or not.

      Cheers, Chris.
