$20 NLHE STT Turbo: $$20 NLHE STT Turbo: $$20 NLHE STT Turbo: Is a jam here correct?

3 players left and on the bubble.

Player 1 (button) seems overall a solid player, just not very aggressive. _4500 chips

Player 2 in small blind (hero) I've been showing down winning hands an have been playing
good cards preflop. I was caught in one river bluff. _2750 chips

Player 3 in big blind (villain). Solid, winning player playing a tight aggressive game _2350 chips.


The action is folded to me and I pick up Kc 3d. I think for about 5 seconds and jam.
I'm trying to decide if my play is correct. The more I think about it the more confident I am in my decision. I've busted out of about 20 tourneys this week, and almost every time a big favorite to win. I am trying to improve my game where I can.

I'm not sure if you every post the outcome here, but it shouldn't affect the discussion. The big blind called with 10s 4s and caught a 4 on the river. I was very surprised he called, but Is his call even close to correct? I don't see it.

I guess on this stage the blinds are something inbetween 250/125 and 500/250, so you and the shortstacked are both urged to take action.
Not surprised he called with T4 suited, otherwise he would get ultra low stacked ...
As regards your play - the situation is similar - shove or fold. This time you got unlucky, but I do not think you played incorrect :top:

You are leaving out information about the blinds, and without that we cant give solid feedback. The effective stack size determine shove and call ranges, because it change the risk/reward and pot odds, and it also determine, if maybe there were other ways to play the hand like limping in. Without this information the hand is mostly a bad beat story.

Lets assume you dont have more than 15 big blinds
in which case your shove is good.

T4s call is bad T9s+ are calls

I thought that was in there- I had to write this a second time. Blinds were 300/600 with me in small blind.
