I'm not sure how many were exactly left here but I believe it is 2-4 tables remaining. I thought that all 3 streets were really interesting spots, and this situation is pretty unique. Both the BB and I have just over 80bbs to start the hand, and the SB's reshove is for 14bbs.

I was having trouble with the hand history converter, so here it is as a raw hand history. We are 2 from the money. 15th gets $1630 so about 2.5x the buyin. I have about 50bbs, the 3bettor has about 60bbs. Is this an ICM situation where I should just be folding pre?
Also curious is anyone knows if this is a hand that can be plugged into a solver somehow? Thanks

Great video. I find the theory stuff much more beneficial than the live play videos.
I was a little suprised by the 90% defend range that you gave the big blind. Is that standard for good MTT regs (i play cash games)? Do you think 90%~ is optimal for all stack depths?
When I play MTTs, I've been playing 65% at 50+bb stacks and closer to 75% 20-50~bb stacks, from the big blind versus a button minraise. I know the immediate odds are there, but trying to defend hands like J4o vs good opponents seems like it could be worse than folding.
Thanks for the video, and any help.

Thanks for the video, Ben. I was really interested in the sizing that you chose. Can you explain them a bit?
110% pot sizing that you used on some turns and rivers - why do you use this sizing versus a more "standard" 2/3~ pot sizing?
Small 3bet sizing with KK vs utg open - why chose to have a smaller sizing or multiple sizings here?
Open size of slightly over a minraise, specifically interested in that sizing as UTG or MP opener. - I've seen this become fairly popular. Do you think that it is higher EV than a 3x open?
Thanks again for the video

27 minutes in we defend the BB with A7s vs a hijack open 11bb deep, and you say pretty easy defend. I'm surprised that you aren't shoving here. Do you think there is a significant EV difference between calling and shoving here? What Axs would you start your shoving range at?
Also curious with the 55 and KTs hands on the bubble of the $5k about 10bb's deep each...How are you deciding that although they are +cEV shoves, they will be bad ICM shoves? is it just kind of intuition? The bubble of this shouldn't burst very quickly since it's only 27 people paid, and it seems like if we are passing up on spots like that, our stack will become very small. Are these hands the top of your folding range, or would you be folding KQs , 77 type hands?
Interesting stuff to see. Thanks.
