MTT 33 in the BB (11.5bb)

Jeffrey OJeffrey O Red Chipper Posts: 38 ✭✭
9 handed
500/1k/1k (single ante)
Hero 10.5 bb after posting BB & Ante

Mp2 & BU limp, SB completes
Hero in BB 33 - I shoved

Does anyone just check here and play passively, and why?

For me there’s 5bb in the pot and I’d rather make a steal attempt on much needed 5bb and if I get called then I’m hopping to be isolated and flip against a draw.

I’m ok if this is the wrong line, I can adjust.

I was trying to find a push/check chart specifically for <20 bb in the BB. SnapShove and FTT don’t include the BB as a chart option.

    I think both options are fine. I'd favor the shove if you think you have plenty of FE and check if you don't.

    Other consideration would be bubble factors, and how far along in the tournament you are, if there are other short stacks at the table etc. If very close to the bubble or someone else very close to busting, you could always just check and see the flop before committing, since they all limped. Even without knowing the other stack sizes, I doubt you have much FE when pushing 2x pot on such a small pot.

    What do you think your dynamic was? Especially with MP2? How about the table as a whole regarding shoves? Had shoves been getting through, or were they being called a lot?
