Default ($11): TT on the bubble facing UTG short-stacked limp

PartyPoker, Big Blind is t500 (4 handed) Converter on pregopoker.com

UTG (t1020)
Hero (t1090)
SB (t1985)
BB (t3905)

Preflop: Hero is in Button with T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]
UTG calls t500, <font color="red">Hero t1090 (All-in)</font>, <font color="gray">SB folds</font>, <font color="gray">BB folds</font>, <font color="red">UTG t520 (All-in)</font>


Can an argument be made for folding TT on the bubble with only 2 BB's? I may be looking at this from a results point of view, which I know I should not, but from my experience (albiet extremely limited compared to most posters on this site) the UTG limp with a short stack screams a big hand. Knowing this, is there an argument for folding? At the time, I felt that with my stack size I just could not fold this hand. Maybe this is a leak. Comments appreciated. Oh, and I'm obviously posting this because UTG had AA.

I doubt you'll get a better chance to get your chips in the middle with only 2 BB - I push every time. Although I'm probably pushing before I get to 2BB.

How do you end up with only 2BB?

I assure you I don't wait around until I get blinded off. This was a very difficult bubble game with players that were pushing virtually every opportunity. Just a few hands prior to this one the chip counts were as follows:
Seat 2: Me ( $2040 )
Seat 5: ( $1935 )
Seat 6: ( $2355 )
Seat 7: ( $1670 )

If you will take a look at the chip counts for the hand in question, you will notice that the stacks are virtually dead even with the exception of the chip leader, who is only an M of around 5.

Well this is definitely a pretty sucky spot. If the UTG player is even at all decent - then hes got you beat...

that said... I don't think I could ever lay down...pretty much ANY pair w/2 BBs left. ESP one as 'high' as 10s.

You can fold - but if you do, you're folding for reasons OTHER than the cards.

Tell me about it! I've encountered much more challenging opponents at this level as of late, leading to much more difficult bubble decisions. But if you are not convinced, I'll gladly send you the entire HH.

Nah I believe you. It happens sometimes. Was this during the day?
