If the purpose was to blind out the sitout, what's the reason for shoving against my blind with 97o and risk 5k of his 7k at risk when sitout is in the button with no chips at stake? If I had a healthy chipstack, I would've NEVER play stupid and shove 7k into a player with 5k just to steal 1 blind when that person can cripple me down to 2k while there's a sitout.
If the guy folded to my blind but raise on sitout's blind, I would even consider folding pocket Aces and let him blind out the sitout as quickly as possible. But that wasn't the case.

So let's get this straightened out. Me pushing the guy around with his blinds while I have a chip lead is considered a dickwad while him pushing me around with 97o against my blinds when he had a chiplead and then crying in a different language on the chatbox is not? Yeah that makes REAL sense. LMAO.
Many KEEN poker players would quickly fold to my blind and then either raise sitout's blind or fold for me to steal sitout's blind. In that situation, I would quickly blind out the sitout as possible and play smart poker of having silent consent of blinding out the sitout. In that case, I would even fold Kings and Aces. Just letting you know, if middle stacker was sitout and short-stacker was active but folds to my blind, I would spare the short-stacker by folding to his blind and blind out the middle stack and do it as quickly as possible.
This wasn't even WSOP
MAIN EVENT Satellite, FTOPS satellite, or any big satellite. This was a stupid donk-n-go microstake satellite sng. Pfft, Like I would fear over losing few quarters and dollars. lmao. I was still even-money even if i lost.
