    Wow. This is an interesting spot. It's an easy shove spot in a cash game, STT, or MTT, but the Skill League may be the only game where this is a fold.

    I think it's a shove, just because you're probably set to make a deep run if you win, which you should at least a quarter of the time, but I might be wrong. I think we need a points system expert.

      cash tourney, no problem with the way you played preflop.
      Skill league, I'm mucking it right then, not even completing.

      flop:
      cash tourney with OESD and that many chips in the middle, I'm calling. You have to put 11% into a pot that you have 32% equity in.
      Skill league, instant fold... should have been mucked preflop. If you call and miss, you will be out early enough that it will normally take 2-4 ITM's just to get back to even (depending on your league ranking).

      in the skill league tourneys, do NOT gamble unless you have QQ+ (and not even AK) or you have less than 2BB. The only thing that matters is to make it as far as you can in them taking as few risks as possible.
      If it's not up to about 100/200 blinds, I normally won't even see a flop for anything but free from BB with less than AJs or pkt pair and even low/mid pairs are mucked unless in late position and can see the flop cheap.
      These tourneys are totally different animals than any other tourney that you'll normally see online.

        right, i should have not completed my blind

        to be able to escape this kind of situation

        next time will not complete my SB- not to waste my .5B plus in here the BB add one more

        but i opted to fold and stay as long as possible because this is the strategy for a league less gamble and be alive

        good decision
