Hi Espada_Nu.4,

Yes, I think you are short enough you have to call here.

The other stack sizes while short themselves have enough chips to wait you out I think, so you are very likely to bubble from here if you fold. Whereas calling I think you improve you odds of bubbling to much closer to 50%

Looking at the ICM it also says a call is profitable here by 17c. Which is unusual for a call to be profitable on the bubble and really just goes to show how dire your situation is I think.

Hope you made it

Quad Bracelet Winner
