I'm pushing here. MP2 can easily have AT+, button might also very well have AQ+, including pairs 77-AA. I think we're probably in a coinflip most of the times here, but isn't that ok, provided that we're really aiming at top 3?

If we push I have a hard time seeing us being in a coinflip situation against MP2 since I think he will only "risk" alot of his stack here with QQ, KK and AA and QQ isn't really likely since we have it. I don't really know about the standard in these sng's but I don't think he will call 2 all ins with AK here risking alot of his stack. I push this expecting MP2 to back of unless he have us beat and we are hopefully ahead of Button but that sure isn't necessary, we have him covered and a nice hand, I don't fold here.

Would it make any sense to stop challenging bigger stacks, and bully the small stacks into the final table?

Easy Push take mp2 out of this hand.

I don't think you can fold here unless you have perfect read on these guys and can smell the AA/KK.

everything else you are ahead of.

Calling only here is the worst option IMO.

That's what I thought. I busted out on this hand with a pf push. This was my second 20+2 tourney. It actually feels pretty good to know that I lost making the correct play.

Push. And do not be suprised when one of them flips over KK or AA.
