Dude, what determines a better spot? I fold here, 6000 outta my stack the next 2 hands if there isnt an ideal situation to shove for the steal and im down to 17,000 (still not a bad shoving stack), i wanted to win the tournament, not hang around trying to pick up scraps.
At this stage, with only 5 BB's left in me a coin flip for a $60,000 pot is good. Very good. It's shit or bust, i wasn't going to sit around 'cuddling my chips' waiting for yet another premium hand to arrive, i read the situation correctly and gambled.
I'd been stealing the blinds for the last 40 minutes, just to keep my stack up. All in with A5os, A4os, KQos and it was going good. At 50/50 going into a whole new blind level, playing for double the average stack in chips - i thought it was a pretty good deal...but the help just didnt come.
