Default dumb call?

Coin flip at best, bad because of ICM or ok because I am 8xbb.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t150 (6 handed)

Hero (t970)
UTG (t1305)
MP (t725)
CO (t2680)
Button (t1595)
SB (t725)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">fold, MP pushed, fold, fold, fold, hero called. </font>, Hero calls t575.

Standard call. You're a ways from the bubble. This man should be pushing a goodly number of hands. Most likely situation is a coinflip but running vs an underpair or an Axs type hand is also quite possible. Pot odds, stack sizes, and distance from the money make this an easy call for me.

I like the call also. You are in the stage of the tournament where it's time to make something happen.

For me this is fairly close even though you are likely a favorite and have pot odds. Problem is losing this hand leaves you in a terrible position where you would need a lot of luck to rebuild your stack to have any chance of finishing ITM.

I call this but don't feel too happy about it. I might call 6's as well but anything less than that and I probably lay it down unless this is a loose player or the table was fairly loose (making stealing blinds more difficult).
