This is a discussion on $3 NLHE STT: $3 NLHE STT: $$3 NLHE STT: Is KQo a shove with 10BB and 4 left to act? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; 6 players left in a 9 player STT
Blinds are at 50/100
SB - 3284
BB - 3308
UTG+1 - 1383
UTG+2 (Hero) - 1000
Cutoff - 995
Button - 3380
Hero is dealt KQo
UTG+1 folds, Hero shoves with 4 left to act.
Is this shove correct? Looking at push/shove charts from a google search, they say to shove with KQo, but when I plug the hand in Cardrunners EV it looks like its a marginally money losing play (attached)...
Are the calling ranges I am putting into CREV too tight (not enough non-ace hands) and thats why the play is negative?
Or is there strategic considerations that make the play OK? Like if I wasnt shoving KQo there would I be too exploitable? Or should I just hope for a better opportunity?

Snap shove. With 6 left, 3 paid, and you being tied for last in chips, we can focus more on cEV rather than $EV here.

But is CREV in tournament mode already reporting the EV in cEV mode? Quote from the software "When in tournament mode, the software will do all of the conversions automatically"... and just to make double sure, I looked at it in Sit n Go Wizard (attached) as well... seems they both agree?
Which is really weird because it seems like not shoving with KQo is too tight. However, if there is only three to act then the play becomes profitable in both softwares. So is the lesson not to shove with KQo 10BB with 4 to act, only with 3 to act? I feel a lot of people would disagree with this lesson

yes kq is a decent hand even offsuit to shove all in with 10 bb or less. limping or a min raise can be a good choice either.

It's definitely a correct shove in this situation with 10 big blinds.

Correct to shove. Limp or min re raise gives blinds a chance to see a cheap flop with hands with a lot of equity against you.
