What was your open raise?

What was the average stack at your table and the tourney?

Seven players get paid, right? I can fold here, especially if I am one of the bigger stacks. There's no need to take a flip when you should be able to cruise to the money. A positionally-aware TAG should know that your UTG open represents a strong hand, so I doubt he's ever getting it in with a worse hand than AK. (He's not jamming AQ, for example).
