PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (9 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

SB (t35640)
BB (t23268)
UTG (t3815)
Hero (t12698)
MP1 (t25470)
MP2 (t13925)
MP3 (t7625)
CO (t8950)
Button (t13460)

Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with :ad, :kd.
1 fold, Hero raises to t800, 3 folds, CO raises to t8925, 3 folds, Hero calls t8125.

Does anyone else call here? My thinking was he had a middle pair or weaker ace, I didn't think he would push AA KK in this situation, comments?

you're either a big favorite or a small dog it seems to me. Although, he could be pushing AA or KK...in the case of AA you're a HUUUUUGE dog. I'd probably fold.

With your reads, folding is a complete mistake. No one can even argue this call, expect for arguing your read, and we weren't at the table. With your read: 100% call every time. With no reads, well, that's what everyone will most likely discuss here.

equity (%) win (%) tie (%)
Hand 1: 55.8967 % 46.77% 09.13% { AKs }
Hand 2: 44.1033 % 34.97% 09.13% { QQ-99, AJs+, AQo+ }

such an easy call.

What Bonch said... but what was the situation? just after the Rebuy period? If so, then I think I make this call. Some people just can't adjust.

It was about 30 min after the rebuy period still a long ways off from the money, he ended having QQ and I lost the race but i was left with some chips about 3k so was able to get back to where i was

Call all day and twice on Wednesdays.

if this were a normal tournament with 60xbb at this stage I could see folding because you should be able to find lower risks plays, but everyone has HUGE stacks here.

given that and your reads, yeah it is a call.
