      Too loose? I see myself busting a lot of these around 10th-15th so kinda questioning my late stage play atm.

      This is a definite shove imo and just unlucky to find BB with a hand behind you.
      In terms of busting out 10th-15th, you should probably look at your play when you have 12-25 big blinds left, it may be that you are playing too tight during that stage.
      Once you get under 10BB you dont have many options really

      Thanks for the reply. Definitely not playing too tight, worried about being too spewy. :P

      Yea I am also happy to shove here unless UTG is a sick nit - which I don't expect at 3s.

      It is the bottom of my AXs shoving range though - just because I don't expect him to be that loose and I think can find some good first in spots with FE with this stack still.

      Also <10bb in 45s we shouldn't get as worried as in other structures since survival is rewarded more in these given the less top heavy payout structure.

      I'm a bit new at multitable sngs :rolleyes: Could you please explain more what you meant here? I mean, should we play more tightish when <10 bb and put survival over doubling up, or what? And what do you mean by "in these" ? What is the difference "in others" then? Sorry about maybe noobish questions, and thanks in advance for your answer :)

      I don't love the push here. If I was UTG I would be raising AT+, KQ and 77-AA. Most of those I am calling your shove with and have u crushed. Maybe the math says something else but I think in the past I have overvalued AT.
