I missed some stronger hands when the short players pushed on the previous board. I mean come on this was a good attempt to double up at that point 102 players left.

How many players left?

This is a sub-10BB shove with 55. Kind of weak to shove with IMHO, when you still have several orbits left to get it in with better. 55 is just not that great to put in in, especially against a raise from UTG.

I edited it now because I accidentally sent it before the end
I just wanted to hear if I should wait for a better hand. Especially since before that I fold JJ and 88 . Almost every tournament turns out in a similar way... thx


E.g. 210left a few minutes earlier against a short I folded AQ
UTG: 328,962 (4 bb)
UTG+1 (Hero): 677,856 (8 bb)
MP: 1,662,848 (21 bb)
MP+1: 241,392 (3 bb)

CO: 639,803 (8 bb)
BU: 241,181 (3 bb)
BB: 6,968 (0 bb)

BB ante 6,968 (all-in)Pre-Flop: (54,968) Hero is UTG+1 with A Q
UTG checks, Hero bets 669,856 (all-in), MP calls 669,856, MP+1 calls 233,392 (all-in), 3 players fold, jacob7k snaps into a Slim Jim

Flop: (1,628,072) 8 T 6 (4 players, 3 all-in)

Turn: (1,628,072) 2 (4 players, 3 all-in)

River: (1,628,072) 5 (4 players, 3 all-in)

Total pot: 1,628,072

Showdown:
UTG+1 (Hero) shows A Q (high card, Ace)
BB shows 9 3 (high card, Ten)
MP shows K A (high card, Ace - higher kicker)
MP+1 shows A T (a pair of Tens)
MP wins 872,928
MP+1 wins 755,144

Hey mardi1987! How are you doing?

As puzzlefish said, 55 seems to be not a good hand in this spot. I think I would do it with at least this range: 77+, AJ+ (and maybe KQs, but I really don't like to enter this spot with Kx if I do not have information about UTG).

See, with this stack size I understand folding 88 if you are in a tournament that is not in your average buy-in (as you said that entered with a ticket).
But you can't miss the opportunity to go all-in with JJ, specially with your stack. If you face QQ+, it happens; if you face AQ+, you have a decent flip and still is a favourite. But as a short-stack you have to go all-in with JJ (if you are 3-bet shoving), because if you wait too much, will be almost forced to go all-in with a marginal hand (like 55).

Thank you very much. The lack of concentration caused by the break is felt... this is already 6-7 in these two weeks out of ~20 played where the prizes are between 10-18k. I won 20-30$ on each, no way to pass that duplication attempt. It doesn't work even when I play it right :D but I guess it will come back.. I can't blame, the first tournament after the break I won and took $1500. Since I play everything with freeroll winnings in 3 months over $2000 is an excellent result for my knowledge (I will have to renew and improve it).

With less than 10BB you have limited fold equity against someone, who already opened, simply because of the pot odds, they are getting. And in that situation we generally want to avoid hands like small pairs or suited connectors and instead focus on hands like AJ, that dominate some of the calling range. So I actually think, this is a little to thin, and that the best play is to just fold.
