KQo UTG+1 line check on the river
I would not overlimp unless you have evidence that utg has been limping monsters utg to trap. Raise the limper to 450, imp and fold to a 3 bet. As played, I am OK with betting flop to thin the field, keeping in mind there are so many people in the hand (since you didn't raise pre) it increases the likelihood that someone flopped a monster. On turn, think I am check/calling for pot control since either he has me beat already and the only river of which I am afraid is a club. However, as played, I think you made your biggest mistake on the river. Since you chose to double barrel, you've just ...

JJ in SB facing a huge open raise
Think you need to rethink your rationale here. You WANT someone to float you with A-K or A-Q here because they are WAY BEHIND. By betting the way you did, you eliminated that opportunity, and now you are only being called by hands that crush you, unless you are playing with total nitwits.

Hand from the $22 $25K on WPN FT
We have now established that the structure is slow. Given that, I still respectfully disagree with the notion that there were "numerous" short stacks at the table. And, using the methodolgy in this post, the OP IS one of those short stacks, so, even if we buy your argument, Diamond becomes one of those shorties as well, which changes the dynamic. I am not guessing about ICM'; you were the one who made the statement that you "feel like jamming this spot is an icm nightmare" without supporting that notion.

Hand from the $22 $25K on WPN FT
But why is it not a good play given position, stack sizes and your reads' Saying "it is ICM suicide" is a generic statement that I am not so certain would be backed up by an ICM calculator. I suspect that the bb or btn must have woken up with a hand (else you would probably not have posted this), but just because that is the case doesn't make this a bad play of course, for the reasons I previously cited, the only refutation of which has been it is ICM suicide/nightmare (which I don't know if that is the case based on what has been posted here) and there were "numerous" short stacks (which ...

Hand from the $22 $25K on WPN FT
There do not appear to be "numerous" other shorties, if I am reading this correctly; there are no other under 10 bb stacks, and only two stacks with 11-15 bbs. The problem with not taking these spots, imo, is that, if you don't, you eventualy become short, especially on WPN, where the tournies are generally fast in structure.

Hand from the $22 $25K on WPN FT
With the button having such a large stack, the bb being so tight, and no one being exceptionally short stacked at the table, I believe that this shove is fairly standard.

Not a OT'er, but Gags is at the FT of Event 25 ($2500 NLHE). He's a PFives reg and frequent poster on the NJ Wall, though.

Mass Shooting at Orlando nightclub.
Well, I am not arguing for prohibition, in the event that you thought I was, of guns or fireworks. I grew up in Brooklyn in the 1970s. In the weeks surrounding July 4th, there were so many fireworks set off that off that they covered the streets like snow. I used to go to amateur fireworks shows-- run by cops! People were seriously injured by fireworks so often that it wasn't even news. It was one of many problems in the city (crime, graffiti, etc.) that most thought would be with us forever. However, with better laws and enforcement, the fireworks problem (and many other problems) in ...

States largely regulate fireworks due to the accidents that can occur with them, correct'

Yeah, but if I am making an argument that gun regulation does not reduce gun deaths, does it not seem like cherrypicking to only use murders' And if you use all gun deaths, state regulation has a definite correlation. That makes sense if you think about it, since deaths from gun accidents and suicides should be more preventable than deaths from criminal acts, since criminality, by definition, is indicative of a disregard for law.

Playing Online In Maryland
So you have no Merge or Winning Poker Network options' Guess driving two hours to play the regulated poker in NJ, or driving a bit shorter period to Delaware to play the the smaller Delaware/Nevada pool would be your only options, then.

This is what I don't get. We have reasonable restrictions on thing like driving. Why can't we have reasonable restrictions on guns that everyone can agree upon' Not trying to troll, I truly wonder why there can't be agreement here; it is not an all-or-nothing proposition.
