SNG hand question
So, I reintroduced myself the other day to members and shared that I've been away from poker and online poker for about 6 years. I'll do my best to share the situation that happened to see what the "new age" thought process is.
6 player SNG, top 3 get paid same amount and we are down to 5 players. Chip leader min raises UTG two folds and then the SB (who is the short stack) goes all in over the top...I'm in the BB with A 10 suited. I felt the call for me was worth it because I put he SB on a small to mid pocket pair and with pot odds
and my stack....i thought it was worth the call. The chip leader comes over the top and tries to put me all in. I obviously fold. Result was SB had QQ and chip leader had 99 and SB doubled up. An ace hit the flop so I would've tripled up but more importantly knock another player out.
I said in chat to the CL that was a dumb move. Another player asked me why so I explained that if he calls the all in...we check it down and he gets eliminated. That started quite a debate amoungst the table and the majority disagreed with my thoughts. So, am I wrong in my thoughts or was it bad play by the others. I'll admit that I did put myself in a position to be squeezed but I was really thinking about eliminating a player.
