Havent played a lot of SnG's lately,just for fun i played some 3,40$ Turbos on stars.Table wasn't very crazy or anything,but also not incredibly tight.i thought about folding at first since the super short guy on the table,but i also thought he might just try to steal because of the shorty and he will fold a lot since we both have healthy stacks and are pretty much in the money already.is this repush good?

I feel like you maybe have the better hand here, but I don't like getting my stack in against the one person that can bust me with a super short stack and a pretty short stack at the table. I think I might flat call to see a flop since you're in the big blind, but in any other spot I fold.

This is ok against most button.

He should fold almost everything here. The problem is that often he does not know it at the 6.5 and folding is better.

I'm 55% sure that this is the exact reason that my roi has been as good or better at the 16s than the 6.50s... the other 45% would be sample size, I guess.

The repush is good if you think he's folding his KJo or 33 whatever, you get the idea. Don't let situations like this become the same as 'calling all in' meaning reshoving without FE. I see a ton of (winning) players doing this, reshove without FE in hands like this (well with 10bb+-2) because they think the raiser was weak not realizing he was calling anyway. Ofcourse you seem to have a ton of FE in this hand but you were on the table with the read [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The raise to 1000 indicates to me that he knows he can type in bets which could mean 1) he wants action 2) he's willing to fold 3) he doesn't know what he's doing but he's doing it, still

For me it comes down to how often hes attempted to steal in this spot. I dont think you can push here if this is the first time hes made a raise from the button.

If villain is a solid player, I tend to believe a standard raise is usually a much stronger holding in these spots than an open push. I'm probably folding this most of the time. With AK, I dunno, that's a tough decision.
