So the first comment was mostly correct. Although I'm guessing (not really sure how much the 4% figure actually goes down with folds though) if the hand starts out 9 handed there don't need to be a lot of folds in front of you for a shove to be +EV.
1.33? since when is the SB 1/3 the BB?

should be easily to calculate when shoving is +cEV...
But tournaments are still about survival besides accumulating chips, so it's not necessary to take all the small +cEV spots, just the big ones, just shoving SB BTN and CO for example would already be so massively +EV that you don't need to risk shoving from the other spots...
should be the easiest ME victory of all time btw
