    Easy fold. No need to risk your stack in the first hand of a MTT with a 9 high flush draw.

    Agreed. The FD isn't even a very good flush-draw and on a paired board you're up against a lot of reverse outs where cards are going to complete the flush and at the same time boat someone (complete a full house), which someone could have right now anyway so one is potentially drawing (close to) dead.
