Was browsing over at the cardplayer.com forums and I saw this large discussion over someone's hand. link to hand discussion (http://forums.cardplayer.com/viewtopic.php?t=19629)

I had an interesting hand happen in a small SnG last night and would be like to hear what people have to say about what they would do in this situation.

Last night while playing in a small SnG tourney I was dealt AKo while under the gun.

It was in the second round blinds being 15/30, 8 players and I was a large stack with 1920.

I raised to 150 (4xBB) got reraised all in by a short stack to 480, called by another short stack (all in for 360) and re raised to 960 by yet another short stack (all in). I decided to fold as I was currently the third largest stack, and felt that I had a better shot of finishing in the money if I stayed out of the way on this hand.

As it turned out, an Ace hit the flop and it would have held up for me, and I would have made 3 empty seats in one move.

(For what its worth, I made it to the money as the chip leader, then lost an AK to TT to finish 3rd.)

Here is the hand history.

easy call....
ok, say ur beat by the 2 smallest stacks, um... qq, whatever... but with the last stack pushing he is not that strong I would assume (most with strong holdings will just call the allin's trying to draw action from first raiser)
thus you are looking at 2 dif. hands almost, if you beat the small stacks great... but the last stack push gives you another pot to break even with and even make a little I think, and you have decent shot at a scoop without an AA out there.
Of course it's safe to fold, but pretty sure profitable to make this call... if you could go broke here though I would fold *** that last comment, does that undermine my previous analysis????

Been in a similar situation in a 10kg final table. Medium stacked with 7 players remaining. Shortstack 1 goes all in, shortstack 2 goes all in. Me in small blind goes all in with AK to keep bigstack away who is behind me. Turns out he is all in too, guess with what? AA, and suddenly i'm out as nr 6 in the tourney, winning 500$ instead of 1200$ as nr 3 or something.

I have no clue what buy-in this is, but I need to assume my opponents are complete morans to make this call.

The overcall from the big stack should be especially terrifying.
