Default Two Bubble Hands

Last two times I've made it to the top 4 I've shot myself in the foot, which I have no problem with, if I believe my move was OK. Both of these, however, were really shaky for me. I've been trying to increase my aggression on the bubble, but dunno if I've gone too far too early.

Damn, converter goes haywire. Hand one it's folded to me, I push, BB calls. Hand two it's folded to me, I push, SB calls.

I. I have a lot of chips, don't mind getting called by shorty, and BB should know he only risks his tournament life on a slim range of hands. I'm not sure he knows this, however, I'd say he calls with 44+ and any broadway hand. Still, I have an's sooooted...blinds are significant...I move.

Final Pot: t300

II. Gah, now I'm shortstacked and need to make a move. These other two shorties do not want to call much (88+, AJ+, KQ). I have a's sooooted...I've pushed three consecutive hands and shown JJ, KK, AQs. I move.

Default Re: Two Bubble Hands

Both of these hands are bad risk/reward wise. In the first hand most hands that call you dominate you, and it's only for a small number of chips. If you want to play make a standard raise, but most of the time fold.

Hand 2 same deal, blinds are still small you can let the blinds pass you 1 orbit.
