Why in some times we are good in a tournament, but in some sines we put our all chips in risck?!

If we have 35BB is good to go all in against one player with 40BB?!

Sometimes you have to put all-in, because the soperin will not fold to a raise. This should be looked at by how the opponent plays. :deal:

It all depends on the circumstances. In some cases, this is necessary. The more important the tournament is, the less you need to risk.

I don't think it's just a matter of whether you have more or less bb than your opponent, I think there are many variables that influence the decision to bet everything against a player who has more or less bb than you, for example if that player against whom Do you want to bet everything? Is it a player who has been playing aggressive? Are you close to the bubble? Is that all-in just a bluff attempt or are your cards really good for betting everything?

There are a few situations where a push puts on enough pressure on opponent to get the fold. Otherwise bet for value. I like Phil Helmuth philosophy of trying to play tourney without having to get it all in and risking tournament life.

Unfortunately, in the tournament we have to face a situation where we risk everything, 35 BB is too wide for push in my opinion!

To open-shove yes, it's too much, but as a 3-bet if 3-4 people are already in the pot and you have proper hand then why not

I think if you don't really care about outcome you can do it to double up quickly. Or push pocket aces early when some players might call with a very wide range.
And in general 13 BBs or less is the reasonable stack size for push.

If it's bubble period not worth to risk.

If the prize pool is small, not problem to all-in for me. :)

I put all of my chips in risk only near the final table or if I am short staked.I don't play agressive this way you play.I prefer to play very tight.
