Table had been, in general, quite tight. The wonderful selection of hands I had been given to play was: ATs, A3s, Q7o, J3o, T4o, T2o, 86o, 76o, 65o, 42o. I decided I needed to push sometime this orbit, hopefully as close to the button as possible. There was action in front of me the previous few hands and then...

I guess I'm the first to reply here. Very unusual for 9 players still alive in level 4. I still fold and hope for a big pocket pair or big slick to go all in with. But I can see a case made for pushing as well.

Push.

If this is a 10/1, folding is bad.

If this is higher than a 10/1, folding is incredibly bad.

If anyone votes to fold this at a 33, please post your screenname so I can add you to my buddylist. Thanks.

Enjoy being blinded out.

In all seriousness. You have &lt;6BB left. Waiting for JJ-AA, AK is suicide. OP said it was a tight table. What makes you think you'll double up if you are lucky enough to pull a monster out of your ass?

FYI, I posted this because I thought it was a push, but ICM said it's very close.

It's a clear push IMO.
