This is standard, no? What about UTG+1, seems pretty standard, too.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (10 handed)

saw flop|<font color="#C00000">saw showdown</font>

<font color="#C00000">UTG+1 (t425)</font>
<font color="#C00000">Hero (t1000)</font>
MP1 (t1000)
MP2 (t1000)
MP3 (t1000)
CO (t1665)
Button (t970)
SB (t955)
BB (t985)
UTG (t1000)

Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with A/images/graemlins/heart.gif, K/images/graemlins/spade.gif.
UTG calls t15, UTG+1 calls t15, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t75</font>, <font color="#666666">6 folds</font>, BB calls t60, UTG calls t60, BB folds, UTG folds.

UTG + 1 Raises to t425 and is all in
I push.

UTG + 1 had 99

not as easy as it looks, L1 and all. shorties limp-reraise-allin is a tad troubling. hard telling he's slow'n a monster or saying "screw it...Ax is good enough". if he had just a touch more chips i might be inclined to let it go. but with his much in the pot, laying you almost 2-1, i can't see how i could lay it down. pushing over the top is certainly correct -- don't want anyone else piling on of course.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. Early in an MTT, I don't care how big his stack is, I am happy to take the action, but in an STT, the cashing equity needs to be considered from hand one, so it is less clear to me. (I just registered sit and go power tools, so I should get a much better idea in the coming days).

Not that it matters, but I won the race.

(As I typed this cable flaked out AGAIN causing me to go out in 6th of my last S&amp;G of the night (we were at level 7 with 6 players left!). I get back in time to see AKs get folded when I am in the BB leaving me t60. /cry

Because villain is shorty, I'm sure I would play the same. Had villain been stacked twice as large, I'm sure I would fold.
