ATss in the BB with 26bb

This a live $300 1-day tournament. Still quite away from the bubble. Blinds are 1200/2400/1200 with button blind. Button completes the call. SB is a big stack and has been opening often. There was a hand few rounds before where I shoved when both button and SB completed. But I am not sure if that痴 relevant here. He makes it 3.5x bb. I have AThh and 26bb behind. He could have a strong hand or he could be making a big stack play. Should I shove here? or make it 12bb ? If villain raises, I would have to call.

Versus a reg I am shoving. A rec I can see calling. Most of the time shoving. Not folding.

Re: ATss in the BB with 26bb

With somewhat marginal hands like ATs and more than 25BBs I tend to call in the BB to take advantage of position.

But this depends on how the SB has been playing. Loose raises in late position or in the SB would lead me to shove.

I'm either shoving or calling here. Mid-range 3-bets are going to be shoves on the flop anyway, with not great fold equity, and I'd rather not miss and have the SB shove.

Also it matters how far away we are from the end of the level and how much the blinds are going up (likely 25% to 1500/3000). I'd rather shove now if we are close to a level change.

Flat and play in position vs a wide range. ATo I'd jam.

Thanks all! I did jam and he beat me with AKo. I think I can call there with early in the level.

Re: ATss in the BB with 26bb

I like a shove here with our reads on V.
SB can iso somewhat wide given that when he has limped in the past, Hero has shoved at least twice.
ATo seems really borderline to jam, and I would prefer to have a read that SB is indeed isoin'g wide before I pile 26bbs.
I'd almost prefer to jam A5s there -- it doesn't flop quite as smoothly as AT and it has similar equity against a calling range.

Talk about being results oriented.

Re: ATss in the BB with 26bb

I agree with other posters about flatting against a regular early in the level. I still have few hands to pick a better spot.

Re: ATss in the BB with 26bb

I think 26bbs is to big a stack to jam with. If you had something smaller (say 16 BBs) then I would jam. With your stack size, I think you should call and play a hand in position.

Re: ATss in the BB with 26bb

I agree that 26 bbs is a little too much here. I feel flat is best option however I feel jam is very good if sb is super aggro and will be raising side here. I lean flat though to keep his range you dominate in.

26 bbs.... I feel is a little too much. Sb is only calling with better generally unless he sucks. I feel at 26bbs, you can find much better spots. Call me crazy but I知
Not anti fold here either if sb is good and button can be slowplaying something.

I知 never against folding a marginal hand like a-10段n a spot like this. If you call, the button gets a really good price and you will be oop against him. I know fold is a little nitty but with 26 bbs, I知 fine with preserving stack for pots we open/ open jam. Post flop, one mistake can cost you a big % or your stack. I知 not saying to fold here but I知 fine with it sometimes i guess. Flat is prolly best.

Pretty much this, eventhough I don't see folding as an option
