This is a discussion on $.25 NLHE STT: Was a right to shove 77 4 from bubble within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; PokerStars - 200/400 Ante 25 NL - Holdem - 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4: http://www.pokertracker.com
Hero (CO): 6.08 BB
BTN: 26.42 BB
SB: 16.54 BB
BB: 4.97 BB
With a stack this short any pair, most aces and any broadway will be an open jam from any position with just 5 players on the table, so 77 is certainly not a close decision here. Just unfortunate that you got action and lost a "flip" so close to the money
with only 6bb left a hand like 77 is good enough to shove all in preflop and villain gets lucky to hit the flush on the river. i honestly dont understand why villain calls 6bb with 910 offsuit, that would be a better question.
