This is a discussion on A10off less than 14bb within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; 8 handed, blinds 22.5k/45k ante 5400
UTG all in 4bb A5o
Hero all in CO position
Button all in 20bb 99
Busted 41st out of 1907
Anyone folding here?
For me this is also a no-brainer jamming spot. UTG has 4BB, so this is almost like a raise first in spot. And if you dont open ATo from CO, what hands do you even play? Unless you have aces, there is always the risk, that someone behind wakes up with a better hand. In this spot it was a coin-flip for the side pot, which is certainly not the end of the world.
I do not fold here but I do not do the shove I only call and I wait for the action of the 3 players that are left to play, then when the button makes the 3 bet it is very likely that I would go with my whole stack since I am only going to having 10BB and A10 is a good hand to go to flip with 10BB is the only thing different that I would have done although the result would be the same but I would have played the hand differently
