    If you PM me about stakes (or randomly bubble chat me, which I consider the same thing), and I haven't done business with you before, or talked with you before, you will NEVER get a stake from me.

    It seems to me that this player was making a play for the blinds and what he perceived to be a weak raise made by a late pos. player testing the waters. This is a pretty standard tournament play. (I would wait a little longer before shoving here.) But his range given that the only info at hand is this single hand, is pretty wide. He's on the cut-off, everyone folds to bluffinclouds who raises 2x bb's, I've executed steals here with anything from T,T down to 2, 3 suited. I wouldn't discount a hand of decent strength here either. Might have been very close. Something like J,J maybe. If I had to guess though I'd probably put him on Pocket pairs (5,5 - J,J) and maybe high suited connectors (8,9 - T,J). Could have hade 2,5 off though, a single hand isn't enough to develop an accurate read on a player.

    So you don't show the results of the hand? That's the good part!! And a players range cannot be determined by one hand...I'm sure he just wanted the blinds otherwise he would have called. Who knows tho...since we can't see his cards. I would hope he had an AK, AQ, AJ (not for you but to justify his shove). But any pocket pair would be justifiable too. Sometimes shoving with 22 is just good fun.

    that is what I have been done with great success...or just going allin with the stone cold cohoneys...they put you on a bluff and call..even better if they ask and you tell em the truth..and they still call...more of a live game tactic that most have never tried...tell them the truth..they likely call you it seems to me...
