we have 15bb and we and 2 players in front of us are playing for the stack, is this the bubble of the tournament, are we folding or calling?
Are you trying to win the tournament or hoping to min cash? If you just want to min cash, say you won a ticket to a tournament that’s way out of your bankroll zone and the min cash is worth a lot then fold. Example, you usually play $1 tournaments and have a bankroll of $100. You won a ticket to a $109 tournament and the min cash is $200. Then absolutely fold as you will triple your bankroll. If it’s your normal buy in then all in all the time every time. A min cash is pretty much meaningless as this level, you want to win or at least top 3 and you are not going to get a better spot than here. Sure you will lose sometimes but that’s poker. As long as you get it in with the best hand, the rest if out of your control.
FFOOOOOOOOOOLLLDD!!!!! Fold that all day!! The topic of AA keeps popping up on here and I would fold this trap hand 100 times out of 100. I lose more often than not with AA and especially sitting on the bubble I have no question if I call I'm going out before I get ITM. If we aren't on the bubble I would call (and expect to lose to the whale calling with 6 4 by hitting a straight), but sitting on the bubble fold it and let one of the other players go out and miss the $$$.
