I don`t know the odds
here but at this stage, 3 cards, it must only be about 55/45 in your favour. So, in holdem terms, AK v QQ?
Being pot committed or not is a different discussion. If, in Razz, I`m short stacked and blinds are big and I get A24 as stated, yes I`m going regardless.
This is no different, IMO, being short stacked in a NL holdem game, say 3 times BB UTG and still some way from the cash. U get Ax, 22+, 2 paint etc and u will probably push all in (I would)
So I can`t see how luck can play any more of a factor in Razz than any other form of poker - feel free to correct me if I`m wrong
