  • I think I can shove?

    It's MTOPS Main Event $15 with multiple Day 1's , 10k starting stack , 5 mins blind level under: I am very short with only 7BB , and I think I can shove because : 1) There is too much dead money in the pot and only two players behind me to act, so not a bad situation 2) The limper is ultra loose and he doesn't have many chips . So he might fold as with 2.8k I have little fold equity but if I fold here and become more short then all the fold equity will be lost 3) Even if the loose preflop limper call me , I think I will not be a much of a dog like he can have :A X or to or some / stuff What do you say should I go all-in with this pretty hand while I still have chance to make the limper fold as he will have to call 40% of his stack which can sometimes make him fold plus my hand is not so bad when called against his limping range What are your thoughts inking: Full Tilt Poker Game #34291080829: MTOPS Main Event (Day 1c) (266270419), Table 27 - NL Hold'em - 200/400 Ante 50 - 03:45:56 IST - 2014/06/04 [18:15:56 ET - 2014/06/03] Seat 1: Egor699 (7,490) Seat 2: adikumar2010 (2,882) Seat 3: Ulti1mat3 (26,277) Seat 4: Starling Money (12,180) Seat 5: Jazzer32 (15,747) Seat 6: H33bzzz (15,911) Seat 7: Poku_90 (7,315) Seat 8: spale999 (18,430) Seat 9: Takter (10,384) Egor699 antes 50 adikumar2010 antes 50 Ulti1mat3 antes 50 Starling Money antes 50 Jazzer32 antes 50 H33bzzz antes 50 Poku_90 antes 50 spale999 antes 50 Takter antes 50 Ulti1mat3 posts the small blind of 200 Starling Money posts the big blind of 400 The button is in seat #2 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to adikumar2010 [ ] Jazzer32 folds H33bzzz folds Poku_90 calls 400 spale999 folds Takter folds Egor699 folds adikumar2010 STATS :

    Being as short as we are and still being far from the money, we have to take spots like this to try and accumulate chips where no-one has raised before us and we have a strong hand like QTs.

    Judging by the few hands you have on the limper, he's probably not limping to trap with AA exclusively, so you actually have some fold equity vs him despite your short stack and even if you get a caller, you're rarely going to be less than a 40% favourite to double your stack. When everybody folds, you increase your stack by 50% and get to 10BB, a huge increase!

      Thanks Andy and I thankfully shoved umbup: but the limper just can't fold X for his 40% stack.

          I'd still jam QTo, it's closer but I still think it's a profitable shove.
