Default $11: Push A-9s here??

No real reads, except that it's a $11 so the players are well, not that good.

PartyPoker, Big Blind is t300 (8 handed) Converter on pregopoker.com

UTG (t1185)
UTG+1 (t1175)
MP1 (t885)
MP2 (t1010)
CO (t1170)
Button (t765)
Hero (t875)
BB (t935)

Preflop: Hero is in SB with 9[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]

Does everyone think I am ahead of MP1 here most of the time? I guess I have some FE if I shove here, but what about domination by a higher Ace?

Stop+go seems like the way to go.

First of all, some people make some crazy folds, even at the $55's. Secondly, I don't know much about the $11s but if I have to guess I would say they don't raise with AT+ only. Of course if you have a read on him that he's a TAG, you can safely fold, but otherwise I think you can push.

You could try a Stop n Go but I almost never do those. I have to implement them into my game. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Pushing is the worst play here IMO. You should either fold or stop and go

This is unusual to have 8 players with the BB at t300 at the $11. It appears to me that you are at a pretty tough table.

Did MP1 have t885 after he raised or before he raised? It appears that he had t885 before the raise and he basically just minraised the BB with a short stack, leaving only t235 behind. If that was the case, then you have zero FE IMO. If you haven't seen any minraises from the player up to this point I think you can safely assume you are well behind in this hand. Fold and get it in when you have first in vigorish.

Seems like I could have gone either way with this hand... I'm getting push, stop+go, and fold responses. Didn't have much of a read on the villian, but it is safe to assume that he hasn't played too many hands up till this point..
