Double-up tournaments that late are about patience. By pushing all-in pre-flop you are putting your tournament on the line, by raising and getting re-popped you can still fold and have a chance to double up later. Just my opinion though
THis is terrible advice for playing a DoN (imo).
As far as the shove goes.. BvB.. a few things to consider:
a) is villain ICM knowledgeable?
b) (if he is) does villain believe you are ICM knowledgable?
If villain is a decent player they should be calling really tight here in this spot in a DoN (there's no need for them to risk 3/5 their stack, regardless of pot odds
in this spot..cuz it's a DoN & there are other SS's on the table.... why call & put yourself in a position to become the shortstack when there's absolutely no need to?).
Therefore (if villain has half a clue) it's an easy shove (& typically would be an easy shove... but am including this stuff partly because it's a super micro buyin & you'll run into all kinds/types of players, many who have no clue).
Even if villain knows you're shoving atc's here (& should be), he should never be calling with KJo. (not sure what they'd need to call with, but am sure someone can run it to find out for ya).
Oh... hey.. there you go (above) MaxiRodriguez said they'd run it for ya.
Now... if we have a read on villain being a clueless random, I'd be more on the side of folding here.
Raise/folding would be ridiculously bad obviously (I hope I don't have to say why.....)
