Default Terrible money bubble spot in 100r

PokerStars Tournament, Big Blind is t3000 with t300 antes (6 handed) Converter on pregopoker.com

UTG (t45398)
UTG+1 (t22026)
CO (t23818)
Button (t20373)
SB (t154795)
Hero (t5143)

Preflop: Hero is in BB with T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 4[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
<font color="gray">UTG folds</font>, <font color="red">UTG+1 raises to t21726 (All-in)</font>, <font color="gray">CO folds</font>, <font color="gray">Button folds</font>, <font color="red">SB raises to t40452</font>


There are 19 left, 18 pay. 903.60 for cashing so its a fairly significant pay jump. I am obviously not a huge fan of "tourney life" or folding getting significant odds. However, I do believe in trying to maximize my expectation. The question is, is this a call or a fold? Folding here makes a little piece of my soul die but I think its probably the correct play.

I got this very small stack from losing a huge hand, doubling up and then getting 29o utg. I figured it was better to fold and call w/ any 2 in the BB. But then this happened.

If so, blinding away is not likely to get us into the money. I shove and pray and am likely out on teh bubble.

Yea, but there is a very high chance that utg+1 busts in this actual hand. Also the 100r bubble never lasts very long since everyone is trying to show how little they care about the bubble.
