Also dislike, especially with a 6bb stack to be the blinds in the next 4 hands.


Alrite adam, why do u think that is particularly relevant?


ICM.

He is the shortstack and our range should be tighter as he will be forced to make his move first.

So essentially you are looking to ladder in a $2.50 mtt?

There is nothing really wrong with that. Sometimes it is correct to ladder, the stakes are not relevant, I would not be looking to do so in this spot but I sometimes do if it is the right thing to do.

I am not sure that the 6BB stack makes a huge difference here and the main problem with reshoving this hand is position, the min raise UTG is strong. Saying that I don"t think it is as bad as Stu seemed to suggest, not that I am saying I like it either, if it was a button raise and we shove the BB it is almost standard.

fwiw Stu was a bit unlucky not to win this event as he lost a flip that would have won him the tournament heads up, then was very short so could not do much.

Aside from ICM, which I don"t think is that relevant here, as we not looking to min cash in these, the 6BB player needs to be considered, at times, as they might be calling off here and we don"t particularly want to go heads up in this spot with Q high.
Obv this is going to be player dependent, hence getting notes on players for spots like this

2 min cashes so far, roll down to $380, but still playing. Enjoying it, despite some of the frustration.
