Default 55 ITM. Do I Push?

Bubble just busted out,Tight table I've been pushing alot of hands. SB has been folding his blinds to BB a frustrating amount. I've busted in my other 5 tables, so Im looking to pick up a first place finish to limit the loss on the set.

Party Poker 22:
Blinds 250/500

Hero: 1800
Small Blind: 4175 (after Posting)
Big Blind: 1275 (after posting)

Hero is UTG delt :5[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 5 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

Hero?

I push---am I making a mistake or is this pretty standard?

yea i figured it was, i just got called by the SB with j-9 and was really suprised after playing as tight as he did that he called with such a weak holding. I guess my loose pusher image cost me some FE there.

This push is unexploitable. You make money no matter what their ranges are.

Naaaaaah, dude just squeaked ITM, he has just over 2bb's, one in the pot...he has to call this - just as you have to push. "gg" "nh" "ty u2" group hug, etc., etc.


Edit: Sorry...missed the "after posting" bit. But yeah, pot odds, blahblahblah. Not a bad call at all.
