^This . I think you guys are thinking wayyy too much into this. Just shove it in with 15BBs... it makes no sense to be folding AK here, and you can't limp (LIMPING = EVIL) and you can't make any kind of standard raise. SHOVE.
Will people call you down? Yes, but you won't be behind (mostly), and after a 1-2 rotations (very fast midway/bubble in an SnG) you'll lose any fold equity you possibly had anyways.
Possible outcomes after shove:
- Everyone folds, you get blinds.
- One person calls, you're only behind AA and KK, everything else you're about flipping or better. If you win, double up, if not... no one has 100 percent cashing percentages.
- More than one person calls.. will only happen in very rare situations that you can't control if you're the first raising in the pot. In situations like this its not unlikely that they first guy will turn over AJ+ and the other will turn QQ+ over.
