    Hi adikumar2010! With A6s from UTG+1, I'm going to fold here and this is my reasoning for it..... If I look at my shove chart, yes, A6s from this position is on it, so I could play it, BUT, is this the best play? IMO, it's not. It's at the bottom of the range and I'm in early position with three very loose players behind that can easily call me. If they do, then I'm at best shape in a flip with an easily dominated hand. With 3 loose opps too, I could easily get into a multi-way pot here if I shove, which means that my hand equity is going down considerably (2-1 dog if it's the two loosest player.. much worse if it's one of the tighter players). With this being a 15 min level tourney, I have time to wait for either a better hand or a better position, where I'm potentially up against less opps. The longer the levels are, the more patient I can be and this is a spot where patience is a virtue. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        That would make it a whole lot closer and I'd probably go with it. 10min+ levels, I'm definitely folding... because with the opps behind, I expect to get called.

          Never folding any suited ace here.

          We're basically as shallow as we can get while still having SOME fold equity, at this point there's no guarantee that we can still find a better spot, and when we do a double up means so much less.. We should take any decent chance we can get to pick up antes and maintain our fold equity.

          Lets gamble
