Default $22 - Yes, I\'m trying to steal your blind.

Here's a situation that comes up pretty frequently. I have a hand and a stack such that if blinds were one or two levels higher, I'd definitely push from the SB. With blinds at 50-100, is it worth it for me now to push now though? ICM would probably help a lot with this if someone wouldn't mind running it through for me.

Edit: These stacks are before posting.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t100 (7 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

CO (t269)
Button (t691)
Hero (t1033)
BB (t1193)
UTG (t1724)
MP1 (t1415)
MP2 (t1675)

Preflop: Hero is SB with K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].

Yes, this is usually a push, I'd say.

This is a push or a fold for me, depending on the other player. At the $22s I'd guess I would fold this 50% and push 50%.

Yes, I wasn't considering making a raise smaller than a push.

Given the barely above 10bb chipstack I might complete in this spot and see a flop. How horrible is that play?

I like it. I actually don't know why I didn't think to do this during the hand.

If it's me in the BB, pretty horrible. I'm shoving 72o if you do that.

Yeah, but most people aren't 2+2ers though (and at the $22s don't know how to play SNGs in general). I'll often do this anyway around this juncture in an SNG just to see how the BB responds.

I did shove this and he called with K6s. [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Had me second guessing my line, but I think it's still correct or at least there's nothing wrong with it.
