I was playing a 180 man SNG once, about half way into the tourney a huge storm was going crazy outside. As soon as the final table hit the power went out. So I'm sure something like that is why there are sitters on the final table. I was third in chips when that happened and went out in 9th, so I'm sure those bastards all blinded me out.

BigStack to our right shoves everytime they are on the button - this goes on for ages and not much else happens at the table - everyone's just moaning about not being able to do a deal.
Do we call with a primo or just fold everything, wait for MrSitOut to bust and then do a deal?
Need more info. It depends on what the jump in pay is if the sitter buts before you do and what all the other stacks at the table look like. With more info we can do an ICM calculation and mathematically know for sure.
