    I'm assuming this is a micro-ish tournament so I think I would call when we are still pretty deep here.

    Is this first or second level? Most of the players are probably pretty bad so I don't imagine a great deal of them get away from over pairs, two pair etc. when we hit a set.

    3bettor rates to be strong, if UTG+1 comes over the top, it's an easy fold.

      Hi adikumar2010! Since the stacks are deep enough to setmine here, I'm going to call the 320 and re-evaluate after the flop or further action (if the initial raiser preflop 4-bets, then I need to fold). I agree with you that the hand is too strong for me to fold at this point, but it also does not play well against these two opp's ranges, which is why I'd rather setmine than raise. If I'd be up against only the 3-bettor, then I'm basically a 60-40 dog in the hand. If both opps stay, I'm a 70-30 dog. Since I'm an underdog in both of these most likely scenarios, I'm too weak to raise, too strong to fold, and priced in to setmine, I'm going to call. If I was ahead in one of them (especially against just the 3-bettor), then I'd want to raise to isolate... but I don't want to bloat the pot or be all-in where I expect to lose. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        Yes it's $5.50 buy-in KO turbo with $1 bounty and it's 3rd level.
