ICM bubble spot $22 888

There are 2 tiny stacks and I have 11bb and ATo in the CO. 20 players left 18 players get 3x the entry (($66) so payouts are quite steep.


I am not sure if I should be using ICMizer or similar stuff here because a) they tell you optimal shoving and opponents don't play nash almost ever and b) having a bigger stack will allow me to exploit opponents in more creative ways that pushing ranges later on.

b) having a big stack will allow you to sit out the time for you to win the ticket. With the right stack, even AA would be a spew to play.

For the spot, it depends how tiny the stacks are and eventually our rank on the tournament. If we are 18th out of 20 and the tiny stacks are like 8-9BB, we may take the spot. If they are closer to 3 4BB, I wouldn't.
