Who Makes This Call?

Played the $28k at 11am local time today. Had this hand came up that I thought was sorta interesting. Considering the action, what hand(s) do you put the SB on and, based on that, do you call with TP2K for most of your stack? This occurred during the first hour of the tournament, average stack size about 4900.

Call. He's on a draw.

Folding is bad in tournaments. That's what i've been learning.

haha! ya my first thought is flush draw. Does not necessarily mean you should call however.. Ax of clubs is not too far behind and it is early.. Of course I called with 86 vs LJ and kicked her ass so maybe Alan is right and you should call..

I can see how my comment would clarify everything.

what a brutal spot! i think i'm with alan, mostly cause it's bvb and i'm a calling station. there are SO many hands he could have that you're either close to even money against, or already behind. i also played some tournaments today and saw some really retarded plays, so nothing he showed you would surprise me, including bottom pair no draws.

all that said, i think it's totally ok to fold here. it's a pretty scary board, you have top pair, and you'll only have lost 240 total on the hand. even though i'd likely call, i think folding is totally ok, and probably the better play, unless you've got a read that he's a retard.
