    Um no. You are about 25% to win all of them. And if you win the first couple you might be able to afford to lose one after that. Blind vs Blind - MTT Live Tournament

    Hey Devan, I think the hand played itself as it should and you got your money in as best as you could. With that being said, if you feel you are on the rough side of variance you can always in a spot like that just flat behind in position keep the pot small control it and keep his bluffs in. Also allows you to fold in a spot you truly believe you are no longer good. But if you put him on a strong ace and k q j 10 turns are you ever getting away with it? Best scenario for you to lower your variance busting the tournament is just flatting behind all 3 streets. Downside to that is you lower your busting percentage but increase your variance in losing the pot in general as even his bluffs will turn or river you at times where as with a shove they fold out.

    It's a tough spot and you played for the win. Gotta be happy getting it in 70/30 to put yourself in position to crush a tournament and play for the win.

    SB has A-Jos

    Flops comes A-9-3 rainbow, SB leads for $4k, BB raises to 25k - SB re-raises to 50k with 60k behind - BB jams

    If you are SB do you fold or do you have to call (pot committed), what are you putting the BB on ?
    Yes I fold. No, you never HAVE to call.
    BB most likely A3, 93, 33.
