Hello everyone!:)
Playing Kamekadze freeroll on 888 with a guarantee of 500 thousand dollars, I got to the 2nd day with a stack of 5 bb (4000 chips).There were 10 thousand participants, after an hour of playing, I climbed 124 places and increased the stack to 22 bb (158 thousand).But then I made two unforgivable mistakes, and the stack dropped to 44k. Prizes started from 500-5000 seats for $50.I flew to the 729th place .I'm asking for your opinion on my last final hand.Was it worth waiting out and not going any further?

When I get this low (which I try to avoid, personally once I get to 7 BBs I shove fairly wide when it has folded to me on the cutoff or better unless on the pure bubble) you have to be ready wo shove with a lot of hands. You start this hand at 2.5 BBs so any hand I would shove if I was hijack or better and it folded to me. In this hand though we already have a player in (which I would not have guessed 8 BBs would open limp 54 suited) so I would personally fold . I want to be the first one in the hand even if I am this short stacked. We dont have much fold equity but when first in we have some. In this case we have next to zero since villain has already put in half of what they need to call out jam.

So in this specific example, I like folding here and you have 4 more hands to get something decent and be the first one in the pot. By no means is doing what you did wrong as its hard to make a large mistake with such a short stack other than getting involved in a hand and then folding. I just like being the first one in and hoping we play heads up or somehow it folds around.

When you only have 2,5BB, you dont have chips to sit and wait it out, and you also dont have fold equity. So the fact, someone had limped, hardly even matter. If its not him calling you, it will be someone else, and this was actually a great situation, since the blinds folded. You put in 39k to win 120k, so you only needed 33% equity in chip EV, and you had 60%. So this was an absolutely great spot to pick up some massively needed chips, and folding would have been a huge blunder.

If you are unsure, if you made the right play here, I kind of sense, that you likely made a lot of folding mistakes leading up to this hand, and those are the ones, you should look into using an ICM calculator like ICMizer. Because those incorrect folds are the hands, that cost you EV, not this one.

This is an easy all-in. I would do the same with such a short stack.
The player to your right should not embarrass you. He would probably immediately put all in if there were hands blocking you (AK or AQ) in his range, and not playing limp. The size of the pot already exceeds your stack of chips. The players to your left will only call with the best hands. As we can see, they had nothing serious. As a result, you got a slight advantage on the preflop of 60% vs 40%. And this means that everything was done correctly.
All in is random in most cases. You went into the casino and bet everything on white, and your opponent bet on black. You had a little more cells, but it wasn't enough to win. So it will work out another time.

I could not reach prizes despite I had 350K unfortunate I got the best of AA hands and I got excited and played it all in believing that I would win 4 more people called and unfortunately someone who had more chips won us with a trio of 444 and finished that hand and appeared in the I screen the game this heads up and I finished very close I am sorry I played that hand all in, a regrettable pity:(:(

Hello friend! :)
It's a pity that you dropped out of the tournament so close to the prizes!:(I myself thought that I would fly out in the first 10 minutes, because I was in the 2nd day on the 9456th place with a small stack.But I managed to spend 3 ollins and fill the chips a little.Then I played calmly, but when there were about 1000 players left, I had 2 unsuccessful half-bluffs and lost 50% of the stack. And then the blinds started to press.:pcguru:
