  2. Assuming there were no ICM considerations, which I don't think there would be, the shove seems fine to me.

  3. Agree with Wacky on this one. If you are not on the bubble or nearing any significant pay jumps, shoving 88 here is completely standard. What might be an interesting question, though, is how low are we going with our pairs to still shove? 55+ ?

  4. Can you please post how many players were left in the tournament and details about the payout structure?

    This will significantly impact the range of opinions that you'll get.

  5. Agree with Wacky and Killingbird, assuming no ICM considerations I'm shoving this everytime UTG. Also curious on opinions on how low can we go with shoving pairs here? Are we jamming 22 or 33 with 12bb UTG?

    Is this yet another bad beat post disguised as a question?

    Advice: As negrealanu asked when posting hands for opinions please post how many left, how many paid and all necessary details. Without those things, it's hard to give accurate answers.

  6. Im not yamming any baby pairs from ep with 12bb left unless the rest of the table is sitting out. Maybe 8bb
