You have 2 outs unless you hit runner flush which is about 23% preflop in hopes... if it is in BB with 1 all in you actually stand 50/50 because of the suckout factor... at this point your opponent is in control of the preflop and the hand... why risk it save the $$$ for when you get them and you can make the bet to control the hand.... unless you have already put in at LEAST $800,000 before the all in then you're are pot committed and all I can say is good luck.
It doesn't depend on the number of callers at all. Hypothetical situation:
all players have exactly $400,000
the first 9 players go all in.
your turn to act with AA, do you call? of course you do.
The point about $400,000 being a lot of money. You should NEVER be sat down with your bankroll on the line.
