Is it not reasonable to think that we wouldn't be the only drawing hand, and that 2 pair hands already exist on the flop? Or that at least one of those drawing hands was AK,AJ, or even 9J? And contain at least a backdoor flush draw?
I value my tourney life more than 4-8 outs. It seems very likely many of our outs are in play already, so we may actually be drawing dead, or close to dead.
HU, I probably would not fold.
But, Like I said earlier, from a pure poker POV, the pot odds say call. And in a ring game situation, I would call there. Just not in a tourney under the circumstances as presented.
