Nice Little Score

Just chopped a $3.30 Mtt on Full Tilt for a lovely $700. At one point on the FT it wasn't looking good, I was down to 1 BB after losing A9 vs A3 AIPF (Stacks were very shallow btw) and somehow made a comeback and made a nice profit for my work.

Questioning a SNG Situation

Ok the situation is thus. Your playing a HU Sng vs some unkonown player who shoves every hand. You Raise xbb he shoves, When he is in the SB he Openshoves. The problem we face here is what range of hands to get it in with. Do we go by equity or do we wait for hands like A9+ , 66+ and KQ etc. Played a super turbo kinda thing on Party, This situation arose.

The problem had me thinking and still does to a degree, Is this kind of play exploitable from the off or do you need expand your ranges based on stacks (hence every BB you drop, so 1 in BB, 0.5 in SB).

Ended up calling with KQs vs 84o, Won the flip (pretty early on so just picked off the last couple of BB's, I'd like peoples thoughts on this please. How you'd go about it etc.

Problems like this arise in different areas of differents variants, Forms of the game which is why playing poker is clearly a game of skill.
