      On the bubble is this shove profitable from early position with 5 BB but 3 stacks shorter than me? I would nearly gain 50% of my stack if everyone folded.

      In the end I was completely crushed with 2 callers but is it still a profitable shove. I really wasn't sure what to do.

      i don't like this from early position. it might be correct but my gut feeling is it's not really worth the risk.

      in the future you should probably avoid posting the results (or put them in a spoiler) because they can influence the answers.

      Yeah sorry I edited it. Yeah I didn't like it either but in the end I just went for it. Didn't work out :s_cry:


      edit: After doing some research etc. I don't think I should of shoved unless I was the shortest stack.
