      I had struggle in this situation and really didn't know what to do. Situation is clear - there was 1 big stack and 1 very short stack who was just playing too tight and folding too much. However at first I happily see KK on my hands, then raise it but big stack just shoves and short stack folds. So whats the right play here? Top2 guys gets profit, 3rd gets nothing.

      I folded because in my opinion the most important thing in these turbos is to survive and get past bubble, but not sure if it was the right choice as I had a monster and probably easy double up.

      If you are even planning to fold on a 3bet shove of the big stack with KK can you better shove right away. Folding KK is to tight here, because then the big stack can push any 2 profitable here if he knows this and you have now also a good shot to be the chip leader and then you can push around with everyone on the table.
