  1. This seems to happen to me alot near the end in these Micro tournaments. Is this an auto bomb situation? The villian that called was somewhat new to the table but was super aggressive and was playing almost everyhand.

  2. You have to jam there. Nothing you can do about losing a 60/40 spot.

    If you find yourself in this spot often (that is, <15bbs and shoving any decent hand), you may want to review your hand histories to determine how/why you get so short in the first place. Perhaps you need to get more aggressive with 20-30bbs to avoid getting short stacked.

  4. You shoved and got called by a worse hand. Isn't this what you want?

    Would you make this post if you didn't get rivered?
