No not me. I'm looking to win tournament, not worried about getting 7th instead of 8th.
I'd just play your own cards in future, and not worry about anybody elses. People don't appreciate getting poker tips
from hand losers.
If I'm in final stages of tournament and up against small stack (i.e probably pot committed) and Big Blind (i.e. has too be in hand anyway) and everybody else had folded, I'd bet with virtually any medium strength hand as there's every likelyhood it's the best (if you feel the short stack has GOT to go, rather than want's to go).
Sorry if I missed something obvious in your post - read it a few times, but couldn't really get head around the hands? (maybe try Paragraphs?).
