      Hi everyone

      I think theres an gold article that aproaches this kind of situation. It happens pretty often with me with sng turbo's, and I never know what should be my range at that spot.

      Since im playing low limits, its very hard that some players notice that im pushing loose on that spot.

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tournament, 200/400 Blinds (7 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (UTG) (t1660)
      SB (t2520)
      Button (t1090)
      MP1 (t3560)
      CO (t1990)
      MP2 (t5040)
      BB (t4140)

      Hero's M: 2.77

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:club: , 9:spade:
      4 folds, Button raises to t1090 (All-In), 2 folds

      Total pot: t1690

      Push or fold here?

      K9o is not a very good hand to shove into the rest of the table. However, on the very next hand, you'll take a 25% chipstack cut and you'll probably be faced with a shove from one of the other 6 players.

      You are probably going to be faced with -$EV situations from here on out, so choosing the smaller -$EV situations would be the best choice. I'm just not quite sure on which one it is: Push right now, or call on a later hand?
