Blinds are 200/400 with no ante.

Average stack is ~4500 and hero has ~3400

Hero is in the BB with T9s.

CO Shoves for 1750 and it folds to hero.

Hero ???

There are approximately 20 people left of a 50 man field with 5 spots getting a seat.

its a tough spot but personally i dont think u can call here in a sat. every chip is important and utilizing fold equity is important imo...

Hi birdayy,

If the CO is shoving an appropriately wide range, even then it's a pretty thin call equity-wise and for half our stack, which isn't super attractive. Most live randoms are not however, most are shoving a much tighter range than is correct, so I would fold this spot and preserve my chips for a better situation personally.
