Yeah I'm probably calling if the dude has a decent bounty. If it's not that big and the guy has been a super super nit then maybe I could find a fold here.
TeUnit: "You have 2 bbs left, I would call with a Uno Card and a Ken Griffey Jr. Card and be happy getting it in. With the money already in the pot you are getting great odds to call and if there were antes its even better."
I call that hand the opponent has less than 20 BB for me it is an easy call because it is very simple he must be looking for any hand and his range is very wide, with AJ suited I make the call without thinking too much
Its close to the breaking point for me and player dependent. If the player is very tight and I have enough of a read that I can be certain i am beat or in a race I will fold. If not and with your stack size I call it here.
You definitely have to weigh the bounty and the specific player here. I'm probably calling more often than not here in a bounty tournament. There are enough smaller pairs, A 10 or broadway hands that he might jam with that I think you'll be in decent shape more often than not. You'll still have 50 BB if you lose the hand...plenty of chips.
