      must i always listen to the icm, even on the bubble when some1 else is shortstacking, or should i play conservatively here until he is elimininated?

      for instance
      if i have 2000 and my opponents have 800, 4000 and 6000, blinds are sitting at 150/300

      should i be pushing at this stage with the hands icm recommends or w8 for the opponent to be eliminated?

      I slightly tighten up my shove range on the bubble if 2 people have me covered by double my stack or more since I don't have a huge amount of fold equity then. Doesn't mean of course that you should start folding any hand other then QQ+ and AK. You're playing SnG's to win after all... not just to cash. If you're gonna keep folding until the shorty busts you won't have the stack anymore to get up higher then 3rd.
