    Hmmm thats a tough one, I personally would fold here and find a better spot, the BTN is pretty tight and is not going to be doing this with a wide range imo, often you'll find this is exactly AK imo (so depends if you want to flip for a potential first place finish I guess). I would find a very tight fold. By the way, depends if you have seen this guy do this before/often. I think if you did it could change your decision making.

      Hi vj,

      I don't think I can find a fold here tbh, TT on 15bb is a monster 4 handed. I don't share the tight range opinion, the stats are fairly meaningless and it's been a crazy final table (we went from 9 to 4 players in 18 hands apparently) so he probably didn't have much opportunity to get involved. So he can be shoving wider than the nuts.

      Would be a good one to run through ICM, idk maybe it's an ICM fold but in the heat of battle my chips are going in here.
