Hi thebudge187

With 4 big blinds I'd probably get it in here too. Our hand doesn't fair very well against villains range and we have no fold equity but at this stage of the tournament with such a miniscule stack we're forced to take some risks.
There's a good chance of us getting it heads up so I like to bite the bullet and hope for the best.

Cheers, Chris.
