    Default Should I have been a nit?

    30 players left in the tournament, top 10 get paid. Been completely card dead at a tough table and didn't have many opportunities to steal.

    Stack sizes:

    Villian $14,000 (14 BB) (UTG+2)
    Hero $21,000 (21BB) Cutoff
    Button about $20,000
    SB about $12,000
    BB about $15,000

    Level 500/1000 $100 ante, pot has $2500 with the blinds and antes (10 handed table)

    UTG+2 Limps (been limping all day with most of his range)
    Folded around to Hero who has (6h6d)

    Thought process:

    Option 1: If I call here, any of the remaining three players can jam pretty easily to go after the dead money. I hate limping with this stack size.

    Option 2: Reraise small (4BB). If Button, SB, or BB pushes, see what UTG+2 does. If he snap calls, easy fold, if he folds, not really sure what to do with this stack size. At best I'm racing, at worse, I'm a 4-1 dog heads up.

    Option 3: Push for $20K to force out most of the range of the remaining 3 players and have some fold equity against UTG +2 who has limp folded multiple times in the tournament. My range for him here was all suited Aces, A-10o+, all broadway combos, and pairs 88 and below. I feel he'd probably raise with 99+, but maybe I'm being generous.

    What would you do?

    Standard shove spot. Anything else is just FPS and can get you into loads of problems.

    JJ...That's exactly what I did. Flop 4, 5, 7 rainbow. Turn 9, river A. Villain had AQ...got my money in right...nothing else I could do after that point. Damn I'm running bad right now. I've busted out of the last 11 live tourneys being a minimum of an 85% favorite going to the river and have crapped out every time. 8 freaking bubblies out of 11 tourneys! When I was playing 5 or 6 per week that was easier to deal with but playing about 2 per month (or a little less), it really gets you down! I'm just hoping the swing back in the other direction will be in a big tournament for real money!

    That is the trouble with habitual limpers, they limp everything good and bad. It was just a shame you ran into the top of his range.
