so most of you are saying he made the good call because of the mats, because 104 wins against A5 this % of the time. but did any of you think that the other guys could have had anything else? i understand the guy has 5 big blinds but still, most of his range is way above A5, phil got lucky the guy only had A5, he could have had JJ or 99, or AA why not, situations where phil is way behind.
so therefor my thinking is this: unless you are sure he has A5 (which you will never know unless he tells
you) therefor just barely justifying a really borderline call, you should fold this.
plus i can't really understand people that justify that because phil himself is shortstacked he made a good call, is his spot shouldn't you wait for good spots? position position position, steal some blinds, shove any 2 good cards in late position. i think that is what himself is preaching.
personally i believe he made a miss click or just wanted to gamble, or simply didn't care much about the MTT.
