Better strategy short stacked
This weekend I was in a $11 18 person sit -n- go. We were down to the final 5 and the tournament paid 4 spots.
Villian 1 5,000 chips
Villian 2 4,800 chips
Villian 3 6,900 chips
Me (small blind) 1,800 chips
Villian 4 (Big Blind) 1,600 chips
Blinds are 150/300. (and about to go up again)
Everyone is folded to me and I'm holding A9. I push all in and am called with 6c 9c and he catches the 6 on the river to cripple me and then out of the money on a few hands later.
My question is this.... Better to push allin Preflop or to just call, see the Flop and be the first to push in irregardless of the flop, let him think it hit me.
Tell me what you think
