With all due respect Sir, yes, the 7-2-7 is quite the long shot, but that was just an example.
Just this morning, I had Q-4 in SB, and I got in for a cheap call. Ended up taking 1/2 of one guy's stack and knocking out another. Last night, I was in the same situation with 6-4 suited and flopped a straight, and made out like a bandit.
Besides the (admittedly) small chance of the above happening, if I get raised by BB, I fold, and it may be giving that player (and others) the impression that I'm easy to get off a call if they raise me, it may pay off huge dividends later in the game if I slow-play a big hand.
To me, if it's early in the game and blinds are small, or later in the game and my stack is big enough not to worry about calling a 1/2 Blind, or on a cash table, that measly call has the potential to pay off in many ways.
So, with all due respect, I do take SOME offence to your comment............ Sir.
