    £50, Live tourney, 3 handed, K4o in the BB

    Hi guys,


    Payout: 1st-£600, 2nd-£300, 3rd-£175. I have between 7-8BBs, blinds 50k/100k/5k ante. Button - solid player with experience online and live, folded a lot to my pf raises but was moderately stealing as well. SB, chip leader with about 17-18 BBs, massive nit.

    My image -agressive but respected in general, both opponents were folding a lot to my pf raises, I was raising nearly every button and nearly every time BvB. Had solid tight image when we were full ring and players were folding to 80-90% to my lp raises. SB was nearly folding every SB to my BB as he was expecting a raise to his limp. I lost a race w ATo vs A9s against the solid player and I'm now down to 7 BBs. I got dealt K4o in the BB and the button raised to 300k, SB folded; what's your action and why, having in mind the ICM? TY

    PS. So far I havent been at showdown with less than a premium hand throughout the whole tourney.

    How many BB's does the button have? We need that info to advise on ICM. Aside from that, you have no fold equity with 6 BB (1 in the middle already). I'd like to know what the BTN's stack was.

    Button stack = 14 BBs, also this was a deep stack 30 min blinds tourney. What range would you jam in this spot?

    Unless I am misreading the information, I am shipping with k4 every time. What options do we have with 7 blinds. I don't think I fold too often, I probably go with any paint.

    I can definitely find a fold here. Button is obviously not folding and you said that sb is a major nit. I would rather shove any 2 from the button next hand. The math may prove this to be a correct call but I think its close.
