      it is the final table with 9 players left, the blinds are at 12k/24K with antes at 3K...

      i have 185K...

      i was given 99... i raised 80K and the BB went all-in for 120K....

      i was thinking that since everybody was quite tight 80K would be enough...

      should i have went all-in instead to provide fold equity???

      thanks in advance for your advice...

      All in
      You were pot commited and u had a strong had so you cant really fold anymore and u also get pretty good odds against any cards you face..

      you can't ever raise fold with that stack

      I rather open shove because you are short, but if you raise you can't ever fold

      you should go all in directly.
      your stack is to short to fool around. just shobe it all in and see what happens
      and no as played you can never ever fold.
      the pot is 260k and you have to call ´40k. so even if you are up against aces this call is a break even play.
      he can make the play with AK, perhaps AQs so you have an easy snapcall
