I understand that folding is giving up equity, but you can't just think of the equity in call vs. fold, but on a much deeper level such going on to think about how the decision affects your future scenarios and possible placement in the tournament. Below its the maths considerations to justify this.
Lets say we have 65% equity in this spot (which is a little on the high side). That means that 35% we loose and are unlikely to get into the final table. We can assume that with the stack we can get into the final table close to 100%, unless coolered, if we fold. Then you calculate if your expected value
with the chances of making each spot is better when you fold on average versus calling.
Of course nobody really does the maths in a sitaution like this, but its something to consider. There are still deeper levels here such as how the possible results of calling or folding work with your bankroll strategy, as well as affect you psychologically
I personally see very little value in telling people if they made the right call or not, because it is much more important to get people to think of the different factors that they need to consider in their decision making as that is what really propels you forward to make better plays.
