Hi PLaws!

The only reason that I can think of is that the BB was worried about the small blind shoving the flop and wanted to save some chips. If I was the BB and the SB didn't call.... I'm calling there with ATC.

I'm never going to try and explain why anyone in these tourney's does anything that they do,simply because these tournaments are what they are.

But this is horrendous. He folded when a call is only 280 more chips into a pot of nearly 19,000. And being the BB there is no one left behind him to act. I wouldn't care if I was holding the Rules card and a laundry ticket in my hand I am NEVER folding in this spot. No matter what 2 cards he has you have to make this call and if you have a raggy hand but flop huge then you may be taking down a huge pot. If you don't think you're holding the nuts post flop and the SB makes a play for it you can always find your fold button then.

That's about as bad a fold as I've ever seen Plaws.
