Default Is this tilt?

I was running so bad that I wanted to change my game, becaue it seemed I would always bubble out. Now after going about the hand histories I seem some seemingly very bad weak folds:

UTG (t1191)
MP (t2639)
Button (t1480)
Hero (t2185)
BB (t505)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 8[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">4 folds</font>.

Final Pot: t450

<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t600</font>, <font color="#CC3333">SB raises to t4035 (All-In)</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Hero folds.

Heads-up it got really bad:

<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>.

Final Pot: t750

<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>.

Final Pot: t900

So I know that pushing these hands is +EV with a high probability. Do you push all these?

Hand 1: Nooooo. Any two. Write that on your monitor with a sharpie. You push any two here, and it's not even close.

Hand 2: If you're going to play this (which you should), just push preflop.

Hand 3: Biiiiig push.

Hand 4: Poooooosh.

Hand 5: Poooosh mal zwei.

Hand 6: And again...

I know that eastbays tool says these are all pushes [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] However when railbirding the 1000 steps I often say players fold their SB, even though they have a low stack and should push any two. Is it really correct to push whenever it's +EV?

Well, the way I think about it is that you should take every +EV opportunity, unless you're passing up a marginally profitable move in order to take a bigger one later. In the world of Party structure SNGs, I don't really put much emphasis on that (considering the fast blinds). If I have an edge, I take it.

Oh, and folding your SB too much is a huge leak. Taking advantage of the BB is essential. Also, training the SB to fold to you when you're in the BB is essential too. I almost feel sorry for the person to the immediate right and the two seats immediately to my left in an SNG. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
