This is a discussion on DON bubble strategy within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I need help feeling more comfortable about my decisions when we are on the bubble and I have the shortest stack. I not sure what
I need help feeling more comfortable about my decisions when we are on the bubble and I have the shortest stack. I not sure what hands are good enough to go all in here. Do I want to be flipping in this spot? What is correct?
I currently have a sample size of 450 tourneys ROI 4.5 and ITM 55%, I know this is a small sample size but it's where I'm at. Playing $5.25 6max turbo DON.
I just want to make sure I'm not making huge mistakes at this stage

Umm it depends on the table, and how the other players are playing.. also the flow of the board, some times big hands are hitting alot, other times the board seems dead in just about every flop, so it depends

You'd have to post an example of hand so we could get some ideas about your question. Typically when it gets down to the last 4 players and you either have 10 big blinds if you haven't doubled up yet or 20 if you have, is when it basically becomes a push fold game.
It really depends on what type of players are at your table, but if your at a table full of your average TAG players than your most likely going to want to shove just about any 2 cards when its folded to you in the small blind. On the flipside, when I'm calling an allin I want to make sure I am least flipping when I'm calling. You want to make sure your ahead of your opponent's range when calling off your chips. The most ideal situation is that you win the DON without ever having to put yourself at risk and just hoping that the rest of the players at the table take the risks while you just sit back and watch.
