  • I want to shove, only big prizepool is stopping me!

    It is $11 Phased tournament its new to pokerstars with 2 Day's (Phase 1 = Day 1 and Phase 2 = Day) and I am playing Phase 2 so I am ITM now and it has 10mins blind level. Pay-jumps are not very huge around 375 players left, 540 were paid. I feel I can shove this , but I am not sure coz I am at Low-jack . Plus it's 10mins regular game so plenty of time and making FT is huge money. I have like 11BB and 5 players to go through if I shove PokerStars Hand #116972862688: Tournament #913983598, $10+$1 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level V (1500/3000) - 2014/06/01 22:42:37 IST [2014/06/01 13:12:37 ET] Table '913983598 42' 9-max Seat #4 is the button Seat 1: adikumar2010 (34866 in chips) Seat 2: Chief_kz (156381 in chips) Seat 3: aph003 (41919 in chips) Seat 4: ruslik_by (40511 in chips) Seat 5: georgealis (57806 in chips) Seat 6: koczwi (70346 in chips) Seat 7: AndrejDu (56426 in chips) Seat 8: aquadraht (34422 in chips) Seat 9: vernizzi (30533 in chips) adikumar2010: posts the ante 300 Chief_kz: posts the ante 300 aph003: posts the ante 300 ruslik_by: posts the ante 300 georgealis: posts the ante 300 koczwi: posts the ante 300 AndrejDu: posts the ante 300 aquadraht: posts the ante 300 vernizzi: posts the ante 300 georgealis: posts small blind 1500 koczwi: posts big blind 3000 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to adikumar2010 [ ] AndrejDu: folds aquadraht: folds vernizzi: folds adikumar2010: Chief_kz: Action Pending aph003: Action Pending ruslik_by: Action Pending georgealis: Action Pending koczwi: Action Pending Tournament Lobby for Pay-Jumps: STATS :

    KQs plays really well in all in pots, not folding this 11 BB deep from any position

    It's too early to worry about final table prize money, we need to focus on chipping up so we can get there now.

      If you're worried about prize pool money then you shouldn't be playing these stakes.

        Hi adi

        We are a long way away from the final table so that shouldn't be crossing our minds or have any effect on the way you play this hand.

        Easy shove. 11 bb's mid/late pos, QKs.... jam it in awlllllll day. I'd shove the QKs from any position.

        Cheers, Chris.

          I did that as I was too far from FT. Do you think BB call is fine?
