Default $33 rebuy, $10K first prize, 17 players remaining

Villian is a tight player, should I figure "I'm probably a coin flip, wait for a better time" and fold? If his range is AJs+, AQ+, 66+, I'm still a slight underdog. Am I estimating a tight player's range correctly with the blinds so high?

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t6000 (9 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

MP3 (t42904)
CO (t96359)
Button (t29622)
SB (t75260)
BB (t70254)
UTG (t44431)
UTG+1 (t30702)
Villian (t89265)
Hero (t80160)

Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
2 folds, <font color="#666666">Villian is all in</font>, Hero???.

AK wants to be the pusher, not the pushee. Especially with 17 players remaining and villain's stack size. Wait for better opportunities against smaller stacks.

I think I'd fold this. I used to be the person that called this, but with the tight read, I think its a fold.

There is one situation where I would advocate a call, and that is where you felt like you were significantly outclassed in the 17 players remaining. Then you might want to be willing to gambool here.

Otherwise, I think you can fold.

I want to win the tournament. I think you can add quite a few hands to his range with the blinds this high, making it +ev to call. A raise of this size would be unusual with a big pair also. I'm calling.

i don't get this. the blinds just aren't very big. both hero and villain have &gt;15bb to start the hand.

Instacall.

I expect to see TT-JJ most of the time.
AK is about a coinflip and chips won are worth much more than chips lost ($EV).
