Hi,
I was sitting at one table in a tournament when it was only 20 players left of 300.
payout structure was :
1:st - 500$
2: - 250$
3: - 160$
4: - 120$
5: - 100$
6: - 90$
7: - 80$
8: - 70$
9: - 60$
10: - 50$
11-20:- 30$
At my table, 2 players had approx 60 000 chips ( chipleaders ), rest of us had between 15 000 and 30 000 chips.
I had approx 30 000 chips. If I remember correct, I was in 6th place at that time and had approx 7 times BB.
Chipleader raised UTG to 2 times BB (approx 10 000). He had start play looser the last 30 minutes due to his stack. In middle position
a player that was tight went All-in with approx 30 000.
I was sitting in late pos with pocket 9's.
What should I have done? called and be all-in in the same time or fold ?
I know the story is not accurate so I hope you are not to fussy and take it for it is.

Fold. UTG flat raise to act behind you, plus the all-in to beat (from 'tight' player). Fold.

You're just into the money, find a better time to move up the ladder.

Well, I fold and on the flop the third 9 appeared. I ended the tournament with the 5th price.

Errrr so what !!! :p I folded 42o last week and the flop was 444 so there !

Dont get results orientated. Folding pre-flop there is pretty standard, well played.

Dude, knowing the flop was 444, you should have called with your 42o. Oh, wait, was that results oriented? Sorry. :D :D

I'd fold this every day of the week. You played it right... sucks when you fold a pair and see you would have hit your set, but you did the right thing.

with possibly 2 or more opponents, you arent going to be even a coinflip to win unless they share cards.

Good fold, let someone else risk their tourney life while you move up a spot from them busting.
