Default $16 Stars: 10 10 pwning the bubble

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t400 (4 handed) Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)

SB (t750)
Hero (t5730)
UTG (t4455)
Button (t2565)

Preflop: Hero is BB with T, T.
1 fold</font>, Button raises to t2565</font>, 2 folds</font>.


Button has been somewhere in the middle on terms of how active he is on the bubble. Id wanna say hes pushing something like A8s+, A10+, 55+, KQs. I figured his hand is at least decent, either that or he has a lot of balls firing into the big stack with a really small stack in play.

A) I can call, win, and easily take second and have a good chance at 1st

B) I can call, lose, have smallish-medium sized stack and still have a good chance of finishing itm

c) I can fold, and punish the bubble for a couple of more hands.

Whats my best option here?

I don't think I could fold here but I agree with you that TT isn't crushing his range.

A) easily.

If the blinds are about to go up the very next hand and you decide to fold the TT, the stack sizes are a little more pwnable. If you're successful, you'll hopefully have &gt;8k. But if you call here and win you'll have pretty much ~8.5k, the bubble broken, and a shorty with &lt;2bbs that you can utilize for the money bubble.

I really think people are losing it sometimes with that "pwn bubble idea", your goal is to maximize ev, and here you have a great spot to do that.
