Short Stacked Push/Fold against Station
$4 / 180 players tourney (37 players left)
UTG+1 Limps (the guy is a station with VPIP/PFR 39/7 over 39 hands) (8k stack)
CO also limps (22/11 over 39 hands) (7k stack)
Hero is on the SB with AKo and shoves 15BB (4k stack)
Obviously against a loose passive, the ideal would be to flop a monster and stack him as he would pay every street even with a bottom pair like he had been doing. But my stack size put me in push/fold mode.
1) Was this hand just a cooler or would anyone have done anything different?
2) Under what scenarios would playing this hand differently make sense (for example if I was at the BTN, with a slight bigger stack would it make sense to raise 2.2-2.5x)?
3) Would make it any sense to wait for a better spot to shove, or on average shoving with 2 limpers on the hand make sense? I had a LAG image at the time.
It turns out things would no change much as the villain limped with AA, but just to have an idea on the thought process.
