Good afternoon to you all a couple weeks ago on intertops poker. I was playing in a $300 guarantee $6.60 we buy tournament. It came down to five people but only for can cash I was in fourth position with 5,500 steps and the short stack only had 2600 chips. I was in early position when the third and Chip stack I think had about 13,000 shoved all in. I look and I saw how pocket tens I thought for a long time about folding the hand but I decide to call rather than fold everybody else folded the guy had the player I should say her king queen and flop the queen on the flop and eliminate me from the tour guide and cash would the proper play have been to for my tens and wait for the 2600 chip stock to short stock to go out before I did so I could cash thank you and have a nice day good-bye.

Ok so you didn't even said how many big blinds you had so it's imposible to say call or fold without knowing this information. If blinds are 500/1000 and you have 5 big blinds i would call. If blinds are 25/50 and you have 110bbs i would fold.
And how can a 6.6 with 300gtd have only 3 people payed? Did only like 10 people register for that and it was a huge overlay?

You have to fold tens there on the bubble. Calling a shove with tens is much different than shoving with tens. Especially on the bubble. Just gotta lay it down and wait for someone to bust out.

He said, 4 places pay. Many tournaments pay like 1 in 7 entries, and on 888 poker for instance they dont count rebuys or add-ons, when these are possible. So this can be like 30 players entering and on average making 1 rebuy or addon each.

I wish I knew what the blind levels were in the and what you thought about the person who shoved but I most likely would have called here. There was a time I would have folded and many times would no make the money as the short stack would double up of win a hand and just outlast me. Unless I have a read they have a real big hand I most likely call every time.

sounds like you had a fairly good game, don’t never think you didn’t have the right call in most cases you would have won 10s over AQ the other players got lucky so better luck next time, username wildwes357, play at BET&BIT, ACR,BETONLINE,NOLIMITPOKER,64spades,

The only hand I would never fold in the bubble is AA
All the others I'd fold if I was not the lowest stack, or close to it.

Yeah...I woulda gone All in... Either you are going to win, or you are going to lose...you are already in the money...
I think it likely that the guy who put in 13,000 was saying that he wanted the pot... but with a big pair, and money in my pocket... I'm coming!:captain:

I have seen some replies saying that your decision depends on what the blind levels are, but honestly, it doesn't matter too much, if at all.
300$ GTD, only four players win, that means payouts are really deep! It is fine to just get ITM and then look for spots to double up, go all in and try and take a pay jump.

That being said, I would not call a shove from a bigger stack with TT, just because there are way too many hands we are flipping against. Even if Villain is shoving wide like QJ, KJ it is still a coin flip (50-50 chance) to win. I would also say that V can have a lot of pocket pairs here, worse but also better then TT so it is altogether a 50-50 decision.
However, keeping in mind it is the bubble, I would be very cautions and fold TT.

Also, as you get a higher pocket pair, the possibility that Villain has two over cards decreases. If we just saw KQ go all in then I would probably draw my line at QQ, meaning I would fold JJ, call with QQ. I am also more inclined to call with AK then TT because of all the worse Kx and Ax opponent can have, but in this instance, with the bubble in play, I would fold AK as well.

Difference in stack sizes between yourself and the shortest stack is double, so even if he goes all in and wins, you will still be at a similar stack size so not all would be lost.

Calling with TT is just too big of a risk on the bubble.

At the same time, if the action is folded to you, I believe TT is a clear shove, as it puts pressure on short stack. In the eyes of the shortest stack it also looks like he can't wait forever to shove, making him more likely to shove a wider range and therefore lose and bust out.

I personally fold here every time. 1010 is not the best hand to call off your stack with when getting action with this hand you are in a coinflip situation most of the time which is not a great spot. If you were shoving in with the hand then it totally changes things, even though when you get action your never in a great spot. Calling off with the 10s here is a negative EV spot so close to the bubble, people tend to play tighter and I don't think your going to ever be looking a 99 or a worse pair when you get action( all depends on the players your playing with but its very unlikely imo). I don't think calling off here is a great play, I probably even fold JJ so close to the bubble, QQ or better in my opinion. You did take a shot though and you could have won and been in a great spot to take the whole tourney down. It didn't happen that way though and calling off with 10 10 here is just not a profitable play for the long run. Better luck next time.

Am I missing something? I agree with playing tight on the bubble but blinds are 600/1200 and Hero has 2,600 chips remaining. Not sure you have time to wait for a better spot than TT.

I would off called.
