Don't be sad, don't be blue..Frankenstein was ugly too.
re: Poker & It is A2 utg(8bb left) a standard all in?
Need more information. What position are you in ? What was the action before you ? In general, I don't like pushing weak Ax hands from earlier positions because if I get called, it's very often by a stronger hand like AT+. From early position, I prefer to push hands that aren't likely to be dominated if they get called like 98s. From LP, I'll consider pushing A2o since it's less likely that there is a dominating hand behind me.
No, not from UTG. A small all-in shove is likely to get called by almost any Ace, any pair any broadway, any SC's etc., especially if antes are on, and weak aces are too easily dominated. I'd actually prefer 72 to A2. At least there you're likely to have 2 live cards. Bombs away in late position.
