"pwn bubble idea"

[/ QUOTE ]

Does this mean keeping people in the game to keep the bubble going? - so you can steal blinds easier when they tighten up? Mostly, I just want to see people disappear.

I'd pick A. but even if you call and lose you can still win - not just ITM.

yeah, thats happening all the time. i think it is also something one has to get used to that one doesnt play one's a game all the time.
this hand may not even be that bad if the other players were really weak and you could almost risklessly steal your way to victory. the worse the players are the bigger your edge has to be in a risky situation in tournaments.

Only time you should comtemplate doing folds like this, is if there's great reason to believe you can gain more in the next hands than making the call, this situation is way too marginal for that but say if the shorty is a total nit and pushes for 1.1bb from sb the others have like 5bb each allowing you to shove blind atleast 3 hands in a row with tight ranges.
