I managed to make the FT of the $5 deepstack tournament on 888 again!

Interesting ICM spot here, I’m sure that it’s +chipEV but I can get a bit lost in these cases where I have a super strong hand but the pay jumps are a lot more significant. 

For context, the short stack is competent, HUD stats after 500 are pretty dead on, though his bet sizes are a little large. 

The big stack has run well (almost all his chips come from having AA against QQ twice), and seems a little erratic, but is up $5k on 888 over 2k tournaments, and has a couple of impressive scores. He’s been putting the pressure on, re-raising a lot of my sb and button opens. I’ve flatted a couple times, and folded a couple but haven’t found a spot to play back at him yet. To illustrate his 3-bet over the FT is at 30%.

Remaining payouts are:



1st: $430

High chance of a deal being made when HU as it’s likely to be deep and the tournament has run 10 hours at this point. 

What range would people 4-bet here? What can I call off with when he shoves? I feel the dynamic is that he’s been light, but I haven’t seen him show down to prove this.

V does a huge 4bet on you, ~60bb, if the short stack have less than 20bb I am more inclined to fold my AKs; on this situacion i think i call with AKs, fold AKo, because the icm… calling TT+AKs.

If I feel I have a huge edge on this players I am absolutely folding AKs, TT and maybe JJ, so I can play them post flop.
