Default 77 lev4, push and hope for race?

Blinds going up next hand....

NL Texas Hold'em $20 Buy-in + $2 Entry Fee Level:4 Blinds(50/100)

Seat 8 is the button
Total number of players : 7

Seat 5: travis_05 ( $870 )
Seat 7: mikew2031 ( $1303 )

Seat 10: honestjt ( $1271 )

Trny:14716907 Level:4
** Dealing down cards **
Dealt to jassad1 [ 7h 7s ]
RobbieBoxx folds.
Odelle88 folds.
travis_05 folds.
mikew2031 raises [325].
nelius folds.

a)pushes and hopes for a race, there are lots of players left, get some chips so you have some FE

b)folds, you don't want to risk being behing here and being in a race at best. You will be better off open pushing to steal blinds

Edit: rearranged seat #s to show I am SB and changed title from "call" to "push"

Yeah I push. SB+BB will take over 1/3 of you chips in the next orbit, and you're not in good stealing position as they approach (edit: now that I think you may be BB, maybe you will be in decent position, but if you are BB this hand and SB the next you lose 1/4 of your stack, too much to give up).

Anywho soon you'll have 2.5-3 BBs and almost no FE. Can't tell from the hand history, but are you BB? If you are I'm almost positive you can't fold and I think mid PPs would rather get all-in PF before pulling a stop 'n' go.

(edit: I get confused on position; tried to clean it up, confused myself more)

I guess a stop and go is an option, but it's difficult with big blind still to act. That way, you might get villain to fold missed overs on the flop which is great, since he misses 2/3 of the time. But depending on BB, pushing might be better. I don't think you can fold here.

This is tough but with the stacks being all relatively the same (not major biggies or shorties) I think you can pass this up. With t750 you'll still have probably more FE than you might think against this table. However, given other table dynamics, your play here may be different, but its close.
