      Hello
      I was wondering, how to play those situations.
      Imagine, you are sitting on BB, before bubble (5-6 ppl remains from 10 man sng) and facing a push from unknown shortstack player.
      blinds 300/600
      You 2400 chips
      player pushes for 1600 chips
      should I call for 1000 chips into a pot of 2500 already?
      should I fold and keep my fold equity alive with 1800 chpis left?
      It is a odds call for me in other situations but...
      I play micros $3 sngs at partypoker.
      Thank you for your answers guys :)

      Getting 2.5:1 facing a mini-stack shove you should rarely be folding. With that said there are times (particularly against passive players near the bubble) where you will be correct to fold junk hands in this spot. If you have a more specific situation in mind definitely post it.
