If I "knew" the V1 (original raiser) was folding I think its slightly +EV.

So it all comes down to the original raiser and what his raise/call range is here. Plus SB and BB could wake up with something.

Your thoughts?

    I'd call in a strong field and fold in a weak one, absent info on the tendencies of CO/HJ.

    I don't know the tendencies of the 20BB villain, but at the time I thought the original raiser could have a raise/folding range.

    Probably a weakly field in this $20 tournament

    20bb stack should push quite wide here, if you go all in the original raiser should fold a lot of pp so I would push here. Not a mtt expert tho.

    Here's the issue with weak opponents. Against the CO shoving range AQo is in good shape. Typically somewhere between a flip and 55/45 ahead, so in terms of chip EV it's an easy call. The problem is roughly half the time you're going to (essentially) be knocked out. If I have a skill edge I try to avoid calling in these spots, since I suspect there'll be +EV spots I can exploit going forward. That's particularly true live since I have to get to and from the casino and that may be my action for the day. Online it's easier to call since I'll be multitabling and can start another.
