    how to play K/qos in Mid Position

    It seems to me that recently I have see a lot of KQos or AJ in early/mid position right when the blinds are really getting serious. Im not sure how/if to play them ? what do you guys do ?

    And while we are talking about it how would you play 7/8suited in the same situation

    here is an example - early position, good decision not to play I think but would you all do the same ?

    PokerStars Hand #88807174762: Tournament #639507300, $6.45+$0.55 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level IX (200/400) - 2012/11/05 22:22:54 ET
    Table '639507300 1' 9-max Seat #2 is the button

    Yup, you got to widen your range when you get down to 7-15 bb's, K Q is a shove here. Remember he's probably got a wide range because he's only got 3 bb here. So he can be shoving with K 10, K J, J Q, or a small pocket pair. You may have to outdraw him if he has A x, but it's the way it goes.

    ok fine shove time....but what if i was chip leader and in BB . You can get reduced real quick at this level if you keep losing blinds but you donw want to be playing coin toss with some goon who has A7s ...or do you

    That's a totally different scenario. There are so many factors that go into your decisions when playing a MTT.

    Villains stack size, your stack size, players left to act, hand ranges, blind levels, how fast the blinds go up, how far into the tourney are you, payout structure, etc, etc

    Cool - lets talk about it
    senario
    $7 SNG 18 players
    4 places paid
    6 players left
    you have $13k
    4 players have $4-6k
    1 player has $2.5k


    you are in the BB with KQos and everyone folds cept for small stack on the button Jamming all his chips in ..... Player doent seem too tight and because of position has a huge range but Previous pushes you have see from him have had an Ace-something every time. Now what ?

    What are the blinds ? And is this turbo ?

    Let's assume the blinds are 400/800

    You have to call 1700 chips to win 3700, or more than 2:1. Even against A-J, you are getting the right price to call. There is no one left to act after you. You will still have the chip lead if you call and lose.

    Call.
