If I have an ok stack do I fold AK? Should I gamble with idiots?
suggesting that the guy who is shoving near every hand is an 'idiot' might be completely incorrect (from a situational standpoint, he might be playing it perfectly.... it's hard to say without seeing the exact HH).
There's alot more strategy to the endgame in a SNG then just wondering whether or not we should be calling it off.
Waiting for an extremely short stack to go out in 4th might not be the most optimal way to play a bubble situation in a SNG ('it depends'). Often times this will be a great oppurtunity to chip up by aggressing on another mid-sized stack (say if there's one bigstack , 2 mids & 1 super short ... if we're also a mid-sized stack or have a stack that will near decimate the other mid-sized stack).
What I'm getting at is > there are many different situations/scenarios.
When considering "is it right to call it off if we figure we're flipping" (< btw.. who do we 'know' we're flipping?), there's other things to consider... including the deadmoney in the middle.
You'll also want to familiarize yourself with I.C.M. if playing SNG's
