This was a final table and the top 5 were getting paid (out of 22). The pay outs were
top 5 (40%, 23%, 16%, 12%, 9%). If I wait it out, John and the utg, would have gone out and I would have been in the money. With the blinds vs chip stacks, where the biggest stack has less than 10 big blinds, would I have been better served waiting until I got better starting hand (pocket jacks, and ace queen) until I got down to 4 big blinds. Another words, was this shove with pocket 8's too loose because we are nearing the money bubble? Fyi first paid 880 and 5 was 190.
