This is a discussion on Sb shoving strategy under 15bbs within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Just got trapped on a daily freeroll Shoved k2 into AKs *Which ingeniously limped!
SUCKED! could've cashed, k2s+, k60 is a shove from a 2+2

So question is Does anybody know?
Tried searching this on here but no luck, also had a hard time finding the Poker ... strategy section so went to the most closest section, wish we discussed more in depth topics here, Feel like I only get that with AMAs on here with Pros
Did SB limp, and then you jammed K2s from BB? In that case ICMizer has K2s as one of the hands, that choose to take a free flop. Presumably the reason for this is, that the hand is to in between to raise. If you use a check or jam strategy, then ICMizer is jamming only the best hands, and then its balancing it with jamming junk like 72s.
This might sound counterintuitive, but the reason is, there is a positive EV by taking a free flop, so the EV of jamming has to be higher. And where K2s perform much better than 72s against a wide range, against the range, that will call a jam, they are performing much more similar.
ICMizer assume 97% of hands are limped by SB, and against that range K2s has 53%, whereas 72s only has 38% so a 15% gap. However if you jam, only 17% of hands call, and against that range K2s has 37% equity, while 72s has 31% so only a 6% gap. And this is why, K2s should take a free flop, while 72s should go for the jam.
