With the blinds that large, this has almost certainly got to be a good call. Villain's range is, well, any two I suppose. If the big stack behind you calls that would be a serious kick in the knickers, but he most likely won't. I think you're okay.

If the blinds are smaller (100-200, say) then I vote for folding reluctantly since villain's range will be narrower.

Why will he most likely fold? The bet is less than a minraise and he's getting about 6-1 on the call and he is the chipleader.

A push seems much better than a smooth call here.

This is a good point. I am assuming a standard 10+1 villain, who is certainly not thinking "I'm getting 6-1 so I'd be crazy to fold." He/she is most likely thinking "Two all-ins! Man, I wish I had a good hand."

Good point, though. Since your hand is fairly strong vs. a random hand, it may not matter if the big stack opens way up. If he calls with Q3, that wouldn't hurt you much would it? What do you think?

I would push to try to isolate the short stack.

Just re-read the HH and it doesn't make sense.

If the seat 8 is the button - then Seat 7 is UTG. Then it's the seat 7 who folds, no? And we're left with seat 6 to worry about who's second in chips, but would not want to lose to Hero (and be left with 1BB).

Push to isolate.

I was SB, and 7 was BB.

All I'm doing is repeating the hand history as per my PT HH.
