Default Bubble Poll... Call or Fold?

Level:7 Blinds(150/300)
Seat 9 is the button
Total number of players : 4
Seat 2: Sandbagger27 ( $2175 )
Seat 3: Magellan9111 ( $2645 )
Seat 9: Silentthundr ( $3405 )
Seat 10: AllInLuckBot ( $1775 )
Blinds(150/300)
Dealt to AllInLuckBot [ Ad Qd ]
Magellan9111 folds.
Silentthundr is all-In [3405]

Villian isn't retarded but I'm not so sure he's the best player in the world either. Assume he's an average 109 player that has a typical idea of how to play the bubble but is no genius.

I'm pretty sure folding here is atrocious.

edit: If you're willing to fold AQs here, he is correct to push any two.

$EV fold = .192
$EV call and win = .325
You need to win 59% of the time here.

I think you're there. Call.

Call because its a good hand and I want to win, not take 3rd. If you bust, you bust. Move on.

Even more important is the stack sizes. Most likely Hero needs to win a showdown to feel comfortable here. AQs definately does well enough at showdown for it to be worth a call here.

this one is very dependent upon his range, which is tough for me to do without actually being at the table. that being said, my standard play would be to call, due to the fact that most players will be pushing a wide range of hands.

Okay I gotta ask...is this serious?

How could you possibly know/think/feel/speculate the quality of hands you'll receive in the short period of time that is the remainder of a tourney?

Seat 10 : fold
Other seats : call
(Seat 7 & my cheat code : call, it's a guaranteed royal flush)
