Well, $11 is already high buy-in for me. The range for the lowest price on the bubble is something like $17-$20. So if you enter the money, you gain, at the same time youre a live opponent, still has a chance for the big money. So in the above scenario, Ill be more defensive and just call and see the flop.
But if say the tournament is $2, I would gamble here and steal the blinds and even call villain all in as what our hero had done. I dont mind gambling a conflip situation. The range for the lowest price on the bubble is something like $3-$4.
So the gain on the bubble makes a difference. Another is the buy-in itself. Ill be more cautious if its higher.
