    I think right on the bubble is a good time to steal pots, but not with an allin.

    just shove it short stack better to 2x up then min cash.... or you can always blind away and win a few pennys...

    u had a strong hand enough hand.. two overs to his pair.. if u hit it wouldnbt be a bad play would it?

    right before the cash is the best time to be aggressive. ppl are afraid to play anything because rather than trying to win they are all just trying to squeek out a cash

    most people get real tight at the bubble so you have a real good chance of picking up the pot by being aggressive but you dont always have to shove some people will call because they think its an attempt to steal

    If you've got chips on the bubble, be a chip bully, lots of scared players.

    While I agree with all your advice about being aggressive on the bubble with a big stack, I was down to 4BB... so I think a shove was the right move here. Thanks for the input
