However

B) This is not a bad play...

But

C)This is a bad beat post...

It's not that bad a play. You played it fine. You just got a bit unlucky.

Yell at you? Sorry, don't have the energy.

Thinking out loud ... I almost always will raise allin with your hand if the SB limps in. how much different is it when button limps I wonder?

Quite different is my first guess, I don't think I push here. Button limping is suspicious to the n'th degree.

Just fold. The stacks are wrong for this move.

I think this is a terrible play. You're on the bubble. Villian has you covered. He limps on the button, which is a bit suspicious. If he calls your push, you're at best a coinflip, assuming villian isn't too nuts. I'd rather take a flop here and go from there. You can wait for a better spot to push.

This is wrong.

I make this play in a vaccuum every time. Perhaps you're upset because you had a read on villain that suggested not to play like this? Otherwise, this is a bad beat post.

I think I push here everytime. Can someone explain to me why this is bad play? I really can't see any other way of playing this. I thought this was standard.

I might be a bit weak tight, and I haven't played too many SNGs so I don't have too much experience, but I really don't like pushing here. You have 11xBB, so you aren't desperate in any way. If you do get called by a typical $22 player with a decent stack, I'd say you're up against 22+, A-10+. The T375 in the pot is a little over 1/5 your stack, and I think you get called here enough to make this play unprofitable. A-10 is a good hand, and while you're in a crappy situation/out of position against a big stack, I'd rather take a flop here than throw all my chips in preflop with A-10 this early.

For those who push here, what would be your range of hands?

The guy on the button limped. He really could have anything here, I think, especially at a $22. And he's folding a lot of that to your push with a very good AT.

Still, I think check is better. But this isn't a spot where pushing is absolutely bad.
