Biggest Cash All Time
Number of cashes
Earlier today I played in a small FPP freeroll for a seat in the Sunday Storm. It was nothing big, top 6 got a seat. The question I have is this. There were 8 ppl left, I was second in chips with 9500+ and dealt 10 7 off suit in the small blind. (blinds were 400/200 there was an ante but can't recall) UTG folds, UTG +1 shoves stack of 465, UTG+2 shoves stack of 1065 everyone else folds to me. Do I not have the price to call of 2/1 here with the chance of 2 knockouts. pot is roughly 2000+ I only have to call 1285 or so. Either way with so many short stacks with 8 ppl left I was gauranteed a seat just by folding and waiting plus it was turbo tourny. I ended up folding and the big blind folded as well for for a heads up race and the UTG+1 ended up doubling up and no knock out occured. Later 2 more ppl fell off and the tournny ended and I got my seat. Anyway again, should I have called for the odds to get the knockouts and end the tourny early or just done what I did and waited out inevitable knocks? I guess I should mention with the board my straight did end up hitting, but again it didnt really change the situation at all with either play I suppose, just wondering if the correct play was to call or fold.
