    Default Should I have folded?

    It's 4-handed and the bubble on a 12-seater 6-max SNG. I'm down to 9BBs, and there's one guy with a shorter stack than me at about 7BBs. I get dealt a pair of fives, short stack folds and one of the big stacks on the button makes a little more than a minraise. Shove or fold?

    Well, see for yourself what I did...

    PokerStars Hand #129563418535: Tournament #1125935728, $1.29+$0.21 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level V (75/150) - 2015/01/29 21:25:47 UTC [2015/01/29 16:25:47 ET]
    Table '1125935728 1' 6-max Seat #3 is the button
    Seat 2: Maks777Vip (1181 in chips)
    Seat 3: baradass (5404 in chips)
    Seat 4: Badabambini (1370 in chips)
    Seat 5: hommer_hulk (10045 in chips)
    Badabambini: posts small blind 75

    Badabambini finished the tournament in 4th place
    *** SUMMARY ***
    Total pot 2890 | Rake 0
    Board [7s 8c 3d 8d 9s]
    Seat 2: Maks777Vip folded before Flop (didn't bet)
    Seat 3: baradass (button) showed [6s 6d] and won (2890) with two pair, Eights and Sixes
    Seat 4: Badabambini (small blind) showed [5c 5h] and lost with two pair, Eights and Fives
    Seat 5: hommer_hulk (big blind) folded before Flop


    Did I make a mistake?

    Yes, you did. He's likely not going to fold to you and you are likely flipping at best. Also, the shorty was out of the hand and he was betting into the chip leader in the BB. Let them fight.

    Yeah, figured as much. Think I just saw the pocket pair and thought I'd take a punt, even though I was intending to fold my way to the money.
