    The UTG has got a monster stack relative to everyone else. He should be opening very wide because of this in order to exert maximum ICM pressure on the rest of you.

    I think we can definitely rip this in very profitably.

      He should have been and kinda was but not purposefully I don't think. I have a history with him and he just has a wide opening range. My guess here was between like 33-36%.
      At any rate HRC likes to fold which surprised me since I was the shortest stack and didn't think I had any ICM pressure.

        Cal42628 yes I was. I've had a chance to look at a lot of ICM spots in our study groups lately. If I remember exactly, I think HRC might have actually had this hand as indifferent.
