Default Psychiatry H1B chances

Hey guys. What are my chances in the upcoming years for matching into psychiatry, considering:
- I ONLY need H1B because of country issues, no GC obviously
- step 1 - 229, have not done other tests yet but if they are on the same level
- some amount of usce and lors but not much (maybe 3 months)

I mean, I looked at FREIDA and there are only 43 programs sponsoring H1B. Minus those competitive uni programs, what is left? Is that number sufficient to match for an IMG? Or should I better forget about psych and reroute my course towards, say, IM?
