      45th of 45 with my chipstack and with $9 dollar bounty on my head. Actually i thought i had only 12BB, now i see i had 15BB. So probably i had to fold.

      PokerStars - 5000/10000 Ante 1000 NL FAST (3 max) - Holdem - 3 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): 14.86 BB
      SB: 158.82 BB (VPIP: 62.50, PFR: 62.50, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 8)
      BB: 41.53 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: -, Hands: 1)

      3 players post ante of 0 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.8 BB) Hero has T:club: 8:club:

      Hero raises to 14.76 BB and is all-in, SB raises to 158.72 BB and is all-in, fold

      Flop: (30.82 BB, 2 players) 6:heart: 9:heart: 3:heart:

      Turn: (30.82 BB, 2 players) 9:diamond:

      River: (30.82 BB, 2 players) K:club:

      SB shows 3:club: A:spade: (Two Pair, Nines and Threes)
      (Pre 53%, Flop 62%, Turn 77%)
      Hero shows T:club: 8:club: (One Pair, Nines)
      (Pre 47%, Flop 38%, Turn 23%)
      SB wins 30.82 BB

      Against an agressive SB I would most likely fold, but I don't think the shove is to bad when you have a little bit more than 1/3 of the stack of the 2nd place.

      This is definitely interesting spot. I think it is better to fold it. Aggro opponet can go for a call with little bit wider range, also because of bounty.

      It will be also good to know how big of bounty BB have, because if BB have big bounty then SB especially aggro one, can go quite a lot of wider, like this one. In my opinion A3o is super wide iso shove, but if BB is tight and have big bounty, then A3 can be close 3bet shove, especially with such a healthy stack that SB have. He will cover BB even if he loose AI against him. Which is very important in bounty tournaments.

      I will prefer to open shove with that range: 20.7%, 22+ A2s+ A5o+ KTs+ KQo QTs+ JTs T9s
      Probably better choice will be to make some r/c and r/f range. Maybe something like that?

      open raise: 10.0%, 99+ AKs AJs-ATs AQo-AJo A4o-A2o KQs K9s Q9s J9s T8s 98s
      r/c or r/s: 5.7%, 99+ AKs AJs-ATs AQo-AJo KQs
      r/f: 4.2%, A4o-A2o K9s Q9s J9s T8s 98s
      open shove: 10.3%, 77-22 AQs A7s-A2s AKo A6o-A5o KJs-KTs KQo QTs+ JTs T9s

      GL at tables!
