A3 shove late in tourney
I was in the final 3 of an MTT. Big stack to my left had roughly 550000 chips, and I have several thousand chips more than the guy on my right going into the final 2 hands, but we are essentially even. We both had about 175000 each. Blinds were 10000/20000 with ante 2000.
Big stacker has been using his stack aggressively and been raising a lot preflop. On the hand right before the final hand for me, he shoved from SB once again with J9, and this time got called by BB who had KK, who doubles up to 350000. So now that makes me a distant third.
The very next hand. I get A3 on BB. Big stack min raises again, SB folds. Now I am looking at about 135000 left (6.5 BBs) if I folded.
A3 is definitely not a hand I wanna risk my tourney life on, but knowing he would raise with a very wide range, I went all in. Ok move here?
(He turned out to have KK, but he could have done the same thing pre with 89). I am more concerned whether I got too impatient after the other guy doubled up. 2nd place wins double what I got, so I can't help but second guess myself.
