Default $22: push any two from SB here?

SNGPT seems to indicate an auto-push here. Is that standard?

PartyPoker, Big Blind is t100 (6 handed) Converter on pregopoker.com

UTG (t1210)
UTG+1 (t2565)
CO (t1320)
Button (t585)
Hero (t1195)
BB (t1125)

Preflop: Hero is in SB with 5[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]

Well, I wouldn't. It works towards ruining your image for a small gain. What kind of percentage does SNGPT give this? I don't have it installed here.

If the bb is tight and I haven't done anything crazy I would.

if your read of villain is that he's playing tight it's definitely +EV... but becomes decidedly not as you expand BB's calling range.

with a calling range of 44+,A7s+,A9o+,KJs+, it's +0.6%
with a calling range of 22+,A2s+,A3o+,KTs+,KJo+,QJs, it's -0.1%

Seems better to wait when your more desperate. Dont want him getting pissed and spite calling you sooner.

Along these lines, would this controversial idea work: call, tight villain checks, and you bet the pot on the flop? Shouldn't this actually improve your image (ie, this guy won't push unless he has good cards), AND let you take down the pot.

I dunno, just an idea that might work at the 22s where there's a mix of donks and good players, and you can position yourself as a tight donk who "plays poker in the late rounds", and gain a bit more respect on the pushes??

Then again, this could be a good way to drop $250 when you could've easily won $150 by pushing...

You have too many BB to do that. This is a good way to run out of chips, in my book. I'd rather be doing that kind of thing if he were button and I were BB, and I were approaching terminal shortness.

Yeah, i was thinking that too... If this gamble doesn't work, then you're just spewing chips huh?
Besides, representing yourself as a weak donk this late in tourney, can't necessarily be a good thing.

This is a pretty easy fold here you stack is just way to big.
